If you've ever watched a Victoria's Secret commercial and wished you had the soft, wavy curls of the models but didn't know how to achieve that without looking *ahem* inappropriate, I wanted to show you an easy way to get those sexy, natural curls in about 10 minutes.
Today's tutorial is a very, very basic lesson on how I get loose, everyday curls that I frequently wear in my videos. There are many ways to curl hair including with a flat iron but I find that using a good old curling iron is the quickest and easiest method for me. Click on, dear readers, for the video!

Here's a look at the back of my head. For those wondering, yes I had my hair ombre dyed last year which has all but grown out at this point. (I just got my hair cut and colored a couple days ago but you guys will get to see that soon. Don't worry, it's not crazy or interesting at all.)
You can see that the curls fall like loose waves in the back and changing the direction the curls are going helps to give more fullness and volume to the hair. The resulting curls are bouncy and touchable.
Really, I think the most important part of obtaining loose curls is using a larger barrel curling iron. The one I used for this tutorial is the Babyliss Pro 1.5" ceramic curling iron but I also have a Jilbere 1.25" curling iron from Sally Beauty that I love just as much. How cute is this breast cancer one in pink? Wish that had been there when I bought mine!
I hope that my tips helped you to get those beautiful everyday curls you've been dreaming about! Let me know in the comments if you have any other hair curling tips to share, or if you have any requests for future hair tutorials. Have a great weekend!
