The days of crimped hair are not over yet! This effect comes back year after year on some of the most on-trend hairstyles. While crimping irons are the quickest way of creating tight waves, there are other ways to do it. Let’s take a look at them.
To crimp your hair without crimping irons you’re going to need a lot of time on your hands. “The technique involves working section by section, wrapping your hair around hair grips and pins. A little know-how and your crimped hair will look perfect!
For the perfect crimped hairstyle, your hair needs to tick certain boxes. “Your hair must be mid-length to long and fairly thin and straight. The result can look good on thick hair but you just need to prepare yourself for the volume that crimping will give you. Crimping also lasts longer on thinner hair. Note that crimping short hair can lead to very unruly locks!”
You can either choose to crimp the whole of your hair or just one section. “As with the wet-look trend
, you can choose to go for two different effects. The roots stay straight while the rest of the hair is crimped. This style works very well during the day. If you’re heading out in the evening, feel free to go all out!” Our tip:
for maximum hold, apply mousse
and a fixing product before crimping and spray hairspray
across your style once crimped.
