I was recommended big barrel curlers as I have thin hair and could benefit from more volume to my hair so for my birthday, I was happy to receive BaByliss Pro 38mm Dial a Heat curling tong.
I have taken inspiration from Mollie King from the girlband, The Saturdays. I did a blog about her fashion sense a few months ago and her hair is always perfect whenever I have seen it.
SOOOOOOO I have tried to copy her style!
I shall talk through the stages of the do through the wonderful means of bullet points:
- Dry hair and split your hair into a centre parting. I always use my TreSemme hair dryer and hair protection spray.
- Section the hair again into vertical halves. Secure the top part of your hair with a crocodile clip.
- I tried to follow the instructions and the recommended heat settings but I felt this setting wasn't giving enough heat to curl the hair. I increased the setting by 5 stages but it always depends on the kind of hair you have.
- Using the curlers, take a section of the hair, curl the hair around the roller and keep it in place for 15 - 20 minutes.
- Do these all over your head. If you want to secure the curl whilst curling the rest if your hair, I would recommend buying some sectioning clips. You can get them really cheap from eBay.
- Apply hairspray to hold the curl (some prefer to do this on the section of hair before curling. Again, depends on the kind of hair you have. Those with thicker hair may need more spray)
My final result ...
I like the curlers once on a higher heat. I had my hair cut last week so had an inch and a half cut off because of the damage from my Groupon disaster so I think when my hair gets longer , I will have a more defined curl. This look gives me more volume to my hair which is good as it is quite thin naturally.
Overall, pleasantly pleased with the product. If you are interested in the item, have a look on Amazon. They cost around £22.
