So here I am with straight hair:
The curling iron I use is a 1 1/4" "Hai Elite Digital Curling Iron." Here's a link to it on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/HAIelite-Digital-Curling-Iron-1-25/dp/B003V4YN28/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=beauty&qid=1303503440&sr=1-6). Honestly, I didn't even know it cost that much. I have a friend who works at the Goldwell store and she bought it for me using her discount and I paid her back for it. The thing with this curling iron is that it gets hot all the way to the tip of the iron so if you have to hold on to the end of the curling iron to curl your hair, I don't recommend it for you. I heat it to 200 degrees (just because I really don't know how high I'm supposed to haha).
Then I use L'oreal Elnett Satin hairspray and mist it all over my hair
Then I grab a chunk of hair (I start in the front, do one whole side, then do the other side, then touch up anything in the back). I pinch a piece of hair and then twist it away from my face, holding the curling iron vertically. Here are a few pictures I managed to get without starting my hair on fire haha
|the back is a little harder so I usually hold the curling iron sideways for that|
Once I have all of my hair curled, I rake my fingers through it and kind of twist some pieces together to make it loose and kind of messy.
And here I am, hair all curled
And here's my makeup for today:
I used Inglot shadows (of course):
351 (matte light color)
372 (matte robin's egg blue)
363 (matte medium brown)
395 (pearl highlight)
So I hope my attempt to explain how I do my hair made sense. If not, feel free to ask any questions and I'll try to answer them! Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to check this out!!
