Published

Certainly, perfecting that gorgeous beach curls is a lot of work. Adding a heat tool to the equation takes extra effort. Though using a wand or flat iron does give you that wavy look, some days, you just want to skip the heat or you might not have your tools handy. Besides, we all know the dangers of heat on hair. Luckily, heat isn’t the only way to get yourself some curls. There are actually a number of easy ways to achieve the same results without a touch of heat.

 1. A Cold Blow-Dry Method

If you’ve already mastered straight and sleek hair via the classic blowdry, you might consider switching up your method slightly with blasts of cool air instead. After you’ve let your hair air-dry about halfway, you should divide your hair into sections as you normally would. Use the cool setting on your blow-dryer, making sure that your blow-dryer is moving continuously from root to tip. Keep the blow-dryer about six inches away from your hair while you dry it.  This method shouldn’t take considerably longer, but you may need to keep a serum or spray-on leave-in-conditioner at the ready to tame fly-away strands.

 

2. Braid Your Hair

One of the easiest ways to get loose waves without heat is to braid your hair at night and sleep with it in. That way, when you wake up in the morning, all you have to do is undo the braids and apply to smooth hair oil to tame any frizz. A small dab of hair oil also would do the trick. And within a night with zero efforts, you get a silky smooth curly look. Isn’t this the most affordable curling method ever? The trick is the number of braids. You could do one or two for long curls. A french plait is even better. Try three or four plaits for an even better look.

 

3. Scrunch Your Hair

If you’re blessed with hair that has some texture, this is probably the most simple technique. Spray some sea salt spray on damp hair, from mid-shaft to ends, and scrunch upwards. This technique will encourage your natural waves for that chic beach vibe. Place the ends of your hair in your palm and slowly move it towards your scalp/roots. Once the entire length is your hand, gently press it. Kind of pump the hair few times gently. You will feel the hardness of the gel being released. Move your hand down and let it down.

 

4. Hair Rollers Are Under Rated

You might think hair rollers are more your grandma’s thing, but they don’t have to be! These babies can easily give you heat fewer glam curls. On damp hair, start rolling sections from the bottom up and secure with a bobby pin. Let it dry for 2 to 3 hours or overnight. You’ll have gorgeous waves and can apply hairspray to set them. Use this age-old method to get amazing benefits.

 

5. Put Missing Socks To Use

Here’s another creative but effective method. You get to use those nasty missing socks and put them to some good use. Cut the tip-off of an old sock and roll it up to get a doughnut shape. Or you can just get a donut bun, but that’s no fun. Once you have your sock bun, pull your ponytail through the hole, and then pull sections of your hair through it to create a large bun. Again, let the bun sit overnight, and pull it out to get gorgeous wavy locks.

 

6. Use A Headband

All you need for this method is a good old headband and a texturizing product. Put your headband on over your hair and dampen your locks with texture spray. Twist pieces of your hair and tuck them into the headband. You should end up with a funky updo situation. Add even more dampness to that updo and wait a few hours or overnight for it to completely dry. Then, unwrap it and you should have luscious curls.

7. Twisting Is Fun Too 

Your Stylist AJ

This French twist technique is a super easy way to achieve salon-like waves. Twist sections of your hairdo over each other and gather the twists into little buns. You should leave the twist braids in for at least six hours, and then gently pull them out to get the final look. Brushing out your curls afterwards will actually make your hair frizzier, so simply use your fingertips to detangle your locks.

Hope you loved all these simple yet effective techniques. Also read- Amazing Tips For Your Hair

90s Lookbook

90s was a decade of the best pop music, Tv series, movies and undoubtedly the fashion statements that left a huge impact on us that we continue to recreate them till today.

Even if you don’t relate to the the 90s, there’s a nostalgic haze that it brings with it.

The Rachel Green of Friends and Sarah Jessica Parkar of Sex and The City; the pop stars of bands like Venga Boys, Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child; independent artists like Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera; and models like Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Salma Hayek had surged the need and desire to buy whatever they wore.

It is not like the 90s relic is over. Even today unknowingly, we pull off the denim on denim look, the crop top, the bra -ve outfits (brave move indeed) unknowingly!

Here’s a complete 90s lookbook for the glowing pop princess in you:

 

THE MAXI

90s lookbook

Straight out of Phoebe Buffay’s wardrobe, maxis complement body well and are flowy and cool in the summer weather.

THE DENIM

The oversized mom jeans and the denim jacket aren’t a product of today but of the 90s. The 90s lookbook loves the oversized denim on denim.

 

CROP TOPS

Who shouted Spice Girls? In a way you’re right! Bright colours and tight fitting crop tops are every girls favourite.

THE PLAID

You know what they tell you about the plaid skirt? Your wardrobe’s empty without one! Guess Cher Horowitz in Clueless gave you enough evidence.

The beauty of long socks are that they go well with all kind of footwear: heels, sneakers and bellies.
