Whether you're looking to perfect your curling iron wielding technique or seeking ideas on how to work with your naturally curly hair texture, hair extensions are a great way to add length, volume, texture and depth.
Curls, especially big bouncy barrel waves enhance your color and highlights with the curve of each strand. However to create those luscious glam curls and effortless beach waves, a bit of skills and the right styling tools go a long way.
Ideally, you want to start with high quality 100% remy human hair clip in extensions like Bellami Hair. This is going to be key to having flawless hair that can easily hold curls, waves or any texture using thermal products and tools.
When selecting a curling method, a small-barreled iron will be your best bet for tighter curls. For looser waves, a large-barreled iron will be useful in achieving that old Hollywood glam style. Bellami Hair extensions are made of 100% premium remy human hair that is heat resistant and can be easily styled with Bellami’s wide variety of curling irons to achieve any size curl you’re aspiring to create.
A great pro tip to incorporate is holding your iron vertically for looser curls, and horizontally for bouncier, tighter curls. When the curls set at these particular angle, they cool down to secure the desired bend. If you have short hair, it’s best to use a small-barreled iron facing down which will create tighter curls on the underside and give your hair a bouncy, voluminous look for a fun and flirty play on depth and texture.
Depending on your overall styling process, you can also obtain different types of waves and curls. For natural looking curls and waves, letting your hair air dry after washing will give them that organic, woke-up-like-this look. For a more voluminous appearance, blow dry your hair first to add more volume, and then curl it for bouncy waves. For sleek curls, start by straightening your hair, then curl with a larger barreled wand for a glossy wave effect.
Each different drying method will help your curling iron do its optimal job while eliminating the chance of burning your hair. For best results, avoid using an iron directly on wet hair as it may cause potential damage and breakage.
For truly beautifully voluminous, long lasting curls, allowing them to set after curling is crucial so slowly slide your hair off the wand or iron into your palm allowing the curl to cool before dropping. If you want to go a step further, you can also clip each curl straight off the barrel on the top of your head so they can fully cool and set, then spray the clipped curls with just a bit of hairspray before letting them down to your desired style.
Whichever curling method you ultimately choose, starting off with top quality 100% remy human hair extensions like Bellami Hair will help you achieve that gorgeous, luxurious curly hair every time you style it.
