To recreate this look, separate damp, freshly washed hair into sections and clip back. For the tightest of curls, be sure to pull smaller sections of hair through each Curlformer
Apply the Extra Long Spiral Curlformers so that hair is encased from root-to-tip, giving you volume and long sassy curls. If you want your curls to spin in the same direction (a style popular for brides) use the same colour Curlformers. If you want to create a more random natural look, alternate the colours around your head
If you want to use a definition cream or styling lotion to make the most of your curls , apply to each section as you go along
Leave hair to dry naturally or speed up the process using the Deluxe Softhood for between twenty and forty minutes depending on the length of your hair. When hair is completely dry, allow to cool as this helps set your curls before gently removing the Curlformers. If your hair isn't completely dry, re-apply the Curlformers or gently diffuse dry your hair on a low setting
Tip your head upside down and gently ruffle the under-side of your hair to loosen the curls and add body, then mist with hairspray. Put your head up and gently tease out some of the curls with your fingers for a more natural look, and mist again with hairspray for hold
You can create the same spiral curls on short hair up to 8 inches or 20.3cm long using the Short Spiral Curlformers, and on very long hair up to 29 inches or 75cm long, using the Super Long Spiral Curlformers.

Curly hair benefits from the application of strong-hold styling products, to see definition retained in the wake of windy and humid weather conditions.
