Overexposing your hair to heat styling takes a big toll on the health of your hair. It dries out the hair cuticle and exacerbates breakage. Hot tools are great for quick-drying and quick-styling. If you are a hot tools addict, try taking one/two days-off per week to let hair air-dry naturally and/or try this heatless styling technique. Your hair will thank you later.
❖ Duckbill Clips
❖ Spray Bottle for water
Optional: Sea Salt Spray
❖ Start with 2nd day hair.
❖ Grab a section of your hair. The larger the section the looser the wave.
❖ Wrap section of hair around two to three fingers and roll towards the scalp. Pin hair with small duckbill clips (bobby pins will leave a crease).
❖ Wrap the hair in the direction you want the curl to fall. Inward curls, outward curls or ‘S’ -shaped curls – alternating between both.
❖ When you have pin-curled the entire head. Spray water to dampen the curls – do not soak.
Fun Fact: In the 20’s pin-curls were also called “spit curls” because they used to spit on them instead of spraying water.
❖ Let your hair completely dry. If you want to do this at night and sleep on your curls, wrap a scarf around your head to prevent fall-out and frizz.
❖ Take out all the clips – carefully.
❖ Finger brush the curls and adjust.
❖ Spray with hairspray.
◆ Focus on where you pin the curls. I like to pin them just above the ear, leaving 2-3 inches from the top of my head.
◆ Try different methods of wrapping your hair to create a variety looks. For a simple wavy look – take extra big sections. For a more bohemian look – twist the hair and then pin-curl. For more texture – use a combination of water and sea salt spray.

Femme fatale Veronica Lake is best known for her classic and iconic hairstyle. The definition of old hollywood glamour, this look has been reinvented and updated throughout the years. Today this look is a bit more polished and modern, but the style remains the same. Recreate this classic and feminine hairstyle with a few easy steps:

Clips – Hot Tools Metal Clips

Shine Serum – Kérastase Elixir Ultime Moringa Immortal
♦ Start with clean, dry hair. A good blow-out will help add some volume.
♦ Create a side part. Attempt a drastic side-part for more drama.
♦ Starting just above the ear, curl hair in small, even sections – all in one direction – away from the face.
♦ After curling a single section, hold the curl – wrap around two fingers – then pin. Repeat.
♦ Once the curls have cooled, take pins out and brush hair with a boar bristle brush to loosen the curls.
♦ Spritz some hair spray on the brush, and continue brushing until all the waves fall together perfectly.
♦ Add some shine serum
Optional: Add a beautiful clip or bobby pins on one side accentuate the side-part.
