his post has been highly requested [almost demanded] by my friends and family for YEARS. I’m not kidding. I am not a professional hair stylist but I like to think I do okay in the beauty + hair department since I beautify all my friends for weddings and events. I currently curl my hair with a lot of different tools but recently I was searching for a new curling iron and the gods at Biosilk answered my prayers. I’ve found over the years that there are few tools that hold a curl like a quality curling iron. I’m excited to say the 1″ Biosilk Titanium Curling Iron is the perfect iron that I have been looking for!
Today I want to share my top tips for achieving gorgeous, long lasting curls. I personally love to use curling irons and curling wands. I don’t mind irons that have clips I just personally prefer the look of my curls after I wrap them around the barrel vs placing them in the clip of the barrel.
Tip #1: Always, always curl your hair away from your face. Once you get towards the middle to back of your head, feel free to rotate the direction of the curl for a more natural look. If you choose to curl all the strands the same way, in one direction, then you will get 2000’s sweet 16 banana curls vibes [you know what I’m talking about]. So to recap, anything near or around the face gets curled away from the face. As you move towards the back rotate the direction of the curl.
Tip #2: Different barrel sizes give different results. If you are looking for tighter, smaller curls then smaller barrels will give you that look. If you are looking for flowy waves, then a larger barrel will give you a softer look. If you have a smaller barrel and can’t afford a bigger one, simple wrap the hair a bit looser around the barrel or if you prefer to place your hair in the clip, once you are mid strand loosen the clip a smidge so it isn’t as tight.
Tip #3: Always use a thermal spray before applying any type of heat to your hair. This includes blow dryers and styling tools. The thermal spray will protect your hair from heat damage and will help your hair stay healthier, longer.
Tip #4: Always let the curls cool off before touching. I usually wait at least 3 to 5 minutes before touching my hair to make sure they have really cooled off. Once they are cooled I will normally add a volume powder or spray to the top of my hair to give it an extra umpf. In the video on our IG, I did not use a volume powder because I was going to bed but if I plan on going out I will use the powder to really give it that extra punch of volume.
Tip #5: If you want the curls to last longer or stay tight while you finish getting ready, after you curl each strand, pin them up with hairdresser clips. When you are done and your hair is cooled, you can remove the clips and your curls will be more intact.
Tip #6: Use finishing spray. I changed over to finishing spray about 8 years ago and it made a world of difference. My hair wasn’t rock hard or crunchy and my gorgeous curls looked more natural. If you are someone whose hair doesn’t hold curls as well, make sure to pin the curls after you style each strand and then use a hairspray for the completed look. The finishing spray will hold most hair in place but if you need a little extra support then grab some hairspray. If you want a style that looks like it hasn’t been touched yet still holds it’s form, then grab the finishing spray.
BioSilk 1” Titanium Professional Curling Iron combines the power of ceramic and titanium elements for the smoothest styling glide. The titanium barrel heats quickly and evenly while retaining even heat distribution. Titanium is high in strength and low in density allowing for a lightweight, scratch-resistant tool. Titanium produces incredible shine while sealing the hair cuticle and locking out humidity, creating silky, bouncy, long-lasting curls with incredible shine.
Here is the completed look.
After I took a few pictures I threw on a lighter shirt so you could see the curls a little better.
