Yara Shahidi’s summer of healthy curls

American actress Yara Shahidi is famous for her beautifully bold natural curls, and for supporting the natural hair movement. The Black(ish) actress recently shared her summer style in an Instagram video, showcasing her extreme volume and ultimate texture while dancing on the beach


Yara continuously updates her hair style, creating ambitious looks on the red carpet and at events. She is also an advocate for styling her hair with tools that cause no heat damage, mentioning in a recent interview with Mane Addicts, ‘Being an actress, many times our hair is overworked, so it has been rewarding learning how to care for my curls whenever, wherever. And I’ve gone almost a year with no heat.’

Here at Curlformers, we follow Yara’s mantra and encourage you to create beautiful styles that are kind to your hair. Simply choose a Curlformers styling kit – from barrel, corkscrew, and spiral – to apply to damp hair, with our unique styling hook. Then simply wait for the hair to dry and remove the Curlformers to reveal healthy, voluminous, bouncy curls!


Following in Yara’s footsteps, we are battling the summer fizz with low-heat options.

Former London hairdresser of the year, Karine Jackson  told the that when battling fizz and troublesome curls on holiday, it’s best to be prepared. She went on to say “When you’re on holiday, keep a leave-in conditioner in your handbag and use it like you would a sunscreen. Twist your curls around your fingers and allow them to air-dry before ruffling the roots slightly for a natural non-frizz bounce.’

The summer heat is too much to worry about when creating beautiful curls. To achieve extra low-heat volume like Yara, use the Curlformers Deluxe SoftHood to reach maximum levels of curl power!
