Big Sexy Curls
What we love here at Hair Philosophers is curls because they are so versatile, and if your lucky you will get a couple of days worth of styles from them! On the day you curl your hair depending on which heat tool you use, your curls will be firm and bouncy... but the next day they will be loose and beachy. Again if you want loose curls use a large barrel tong or simply take thicker sections of hair. Equally smaller barrel tongs and smaller sections tend to make tighter curls.
If you aim your tongs/straighteners away from your face the curls will direct backwards and if you curl with the tongs towards your face the curls will face inwards. We tend to do a mixture of both so that the curls look random. When you have curled your whole head you can leave the curls intact or loosen them by what we call "raking" them out with your fingers. Another technique is to simply brush them out with a soft brush to make soft waves.
