Stylist and salon owner Ricky Pennisi says it's so powerful to see curls making their way back onto the scene. "I've always loved curls—they are full of movement and personality."
So what's the trick to pulling them off? "Making sure your hair is fully hydrated," says Pennisi. "Wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo, which won't strip the natural oils in your hair that prevent frizz and hair damage. Once you're out of the shower, gently towel-dry your hair and section it into three levels. Starting at the bottom and working your way to the top, apply a styling gel to define your curls, then use setting spray all over your hair to lock them in. This step blocks out frizz and keeps curls in their place. Finally, use a diffuser to dry your hair to get big, bouncy curls. A diffuser will enhance your curls by 30 percent and is great for those who have naturally wavy or curly hair."
So if you're not even sure what your natural texture looks like anymore because you've straightened and styled your hair for years, it's time to take a walk on the wild side!
