Let’s talk curls this summer! Down styles and long luscious locks are becoming increasingly popular for special occasions. Here are a couple of looks that we adore here at Valentina D
Retro waves are a sophisticated way to add timeless beauty to any look. The example photo showcases three ways to wear this kind of style. The hairstyle in the center photo can be dressed up or down, the one on the left is a great casual look, and the hairstyle on the right is appropriate for bridal/special event occasions. You can achieve a casual version of this style yourself by using either a barrel curling iron or a clipless wand. Start sectioning in the back of the head and curl all of the hair in the same direction. Use hair spray and a brush to comb out the curls. This is just one of many ways to achieve this look in a quick, casual manner.
Beach waves are great because they have a natural look to them. They are soft and romantic, which makes them great for beach weddings or casual wear. We love the two photos on the left as examples of relaxed, casual styles. Dressing up the style with a couple of pins and some polishing will make it appropriate for special occasions. The style on the right is a great example of this look. Pinning some of the hair up allows you to add a little bit of volume to the style and dress it up, making it ideal for that tousled, naturally beautiful look. All of these styles can be achieved using a clipless wand. The size of the section of hair and products used will influence the finished look. Some curling wands even offer different tapered designs which also change the look of the finished style.
