    DIY Short Curly Hairstyle Tutorial

    Short Curly Hairstyle

    If you want to dazzle ’em with your short curly hair. . . then go REALLY curly!

    Do you know the difference between ordinary everyday curls, and curly hair that really turns heads? The answer can be summed up in just a few words . . . the right haircut, the right hair products, and the right styling technique.  If you weren’t born with perfect, natural curls that fall effortlessly into place, then of course you know getting there will require a little time and effort.  But then, for that special event where you want to put on a new look and be absolutely smashing . . . it’s well worth a little effort!

    If your hair type is heavy and stick straight, trying to create a curly hairstyle will be wasted effort. This short curly hairstyle tutorial gives steps on how to create a long lasting head full of healthy, shiny, bouncy curls. Be kind to yourself and allow yourself time to get it the way you want it. It’s a good idea to do a practice run or two before a big event; that way you’ll learn which products work best, how much product to use, and just the right size and amount of curls look best.

    Products You’ll Need

    If you want more volume to your hair, use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, like Matrix Amplify Shampoo . Otherwise use a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Graham Webb is another product line I like so I’ll stick with recommendations from this line, but you can use a similar product type. That would be a Thermal spray or Wax pomade in a product line you like. Here is what else you’ll need:

    • Thermal Spray – Graham Webb Heat Response Soft Finish Spray

    • Wax , Pomade — Graham Webb Brit Style Wax Pomade

    • Curling Irons – Using two different small barrel irons will give a fuller more textured look

    Styling the Look

    1. Section your hair down the middle and then clip up.

    2. Drop down approximately one inch wide horizontal sections at a time starting at the nape of the neck.

    3. Spray a one inch section at a time with, Graham Webb’s Heat Response Soft Finish Spray, and curl using a spiral-wrap technique.

    4. Alternate the direction you spiral each curl, it will give the end result more interest and volume. If you have two sized irons, alternating these will give an exaggerated look of fullness.

    5. Repeat this process till done.

    6. Finish the hairstyle by using your fingers to work a bit of the Wax Pomade into the strands. This step will provide definition and separation to your curls.

    7. If your hair is too long on top to naturally get the height as shown in this picture, lift sections and pin underneath on top of your head. It will give height and a more curly look to your entire head.


    Try a pretty little sparkle into your short curly hairstyle and have some. . . fun. For more great pictures of great hairstyles check out our Pinterest Curly Hairstyles and Wavy Hairstyles Boards.
