The Big Sexy Blowout

There’s few things I love more than a big, sexy head full of hair with tons of volume and movement. It’s sure to be the finishing touch to a gorgeous dress and stunning makeup!

Big Sexy Blowout Curly Hairstyle with Side Flips and Fun Wild Bangs

How to Style:

1. Begin with dry hair that has been smoothed with a round brush.

2. Secure hair back, leaving out one section to begin putting hot rollers in.

3. Begin by wrapping a larger section of hair (approx. 2 inches) around a medium to large size hot roller. Clip the roller and let sit. Continue until all hair is in hot rollers.

4. When the rollers have cooled, remove them from your hair. Run your fingers through your hair to create more body and bounce.

Recommended Products:

A good thickening spray right after you wash your hair is crucial to getting a big sexy volumized look. I love Bumble and Bumble’s Thickening Spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is great for people with medium to thick hair that doesn’t have too much natural wave or curl. Because it creates volume and makes the hair look thicker, it will work well for anyone who has a narrow or elongated face.

The Pin Curled Princess

This curled look would complement any prom dress, and would make elaborate makeup stand out. This style is a timeless classic that will never get old!

How to Style:

1. Start with dry hair parted to the desired side.

2. Secure hair back, leaving one section out to begin curling. Spray each section with a light holding spray before curling it.

3. Curl each section with a 1 inch curling iron. When you release your hair from around the curling iron, try to avoid letting the curl drop, but rather remove the curling iron, and keep the hair curled up in a pin curl, or, if the curl falls out a bit, simply re-wind it around your finger to create a pin curl .

4. Clip the pin curl to your head so it can “set”. This can be done with a bobby pin or a pin curl clip.

5. After you have curled all of your hair, and each section is pinned up in a pin curl, allow it to stay like that for the desired amount of time. Anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours is ideal.

6. Remove each pin curl and gently twist it around your finger to re shape the curl.

7. Spray everything with a medium holding spray.

Recommended Products:

A good finishing spray is crucial to your style holding and looking great all night. I like Kenra Hairspray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will soften strong jaw lines and will flatter square face shapes. This style is also great for people with finer to medium hair, that doesn’t hold curl well. Creating pin curls and allowing them to set will help your hair to hold a curl better than usual.
