Glam curls, coming at ya! Scroll to see the process!
I decided to style my @jonrenau
Top Full in these luscious loopy curls, but I think it would be adorable in a shorter wig too! Going to have to try in my Gwyneth.
For glam curls we’re going to feed the hair in sections into the curling iron horizontally. This creates round loopy curls 😃
I used a little bit of a larger barrel curling iron than I usually do… 1 1/4 inches. I sectioned off the hair in about 2 inch sections, not too thick. I misted each section with @jonrenau
Heat Treat Spray, gotta protect that hair! As I curled I tried to do something called the “clicking technique”. You kind of click the curling iron clamp as you have the hair in the iron. This allows the hair to keep moving as it’s in the curling iron and prevents heat damage. Once you release the curl, you want to stand the curl up and clip it into place. Also… important!! Clip the curl into place on the inside of the curl! If you do it on the outside you could create a dent on the outside. No Bueno and not pretty. I bought a million of these little clips on Amazon. Cheap! I know this step seems “extra” but I’ve found it’s incredibly crucial. This allows for extra vavavoom volume AND it gets you longevity out of your style. Nothing worse than having your hair give up halfway through an important event! :)
I gave my clipped curls a liberal spraying of the Versatile 3 Way Hair Spray and I let them cool over night.
Next day… I unclipped the curls, I put on my hairpiece (VOLUME) and smoothed the hair out a little and brushed through the curls with my paddle brush. Side note: I always use adhesive when I wear the Top Full. It’s a ton of hair and my biohair needs help supporting the clips. Makes styling easier too so you don’t pull on the hair while it’s on your head. 😊 Then, I kind of smoothed the hair down and reshaped the curls around my fingers. More hairspray!
I know a look like this takes some time and effort, but you can break it it up into steps. As I mentioned, it’s my alll time favorite look!! I love love love this style, it would be so cute clipped up on one side or half up. 💁🏻♀️
