Some beauty looks that are widely known as classics. A red lip, winged liner, and the smoky eye all come to mind. Of course, it isn’t only makeup looks that can be classics! One of the biggest beauty classics is actually a hairstyle—none other than voluminous curls. Voluminous curls are a staple hairstyle because they’re fit for any occasion and simply never go out of style. Basically, if you haven’t learned how to create voluminous curls, you’re seriously missing out! To get in on this timeless look, read on and learn how to get gorgeous, voluminous curls for yourself.
When it comes to styling your ‘do in voluminous curls, it’s all about prepping your mane based on your hair type. The ideal texture to start with is silky, frizz-free, and smooth. To achieve this—regardless of your hair type—you'll need to follow the right hair care routine.
If you have curly hair…use a hair care system that will ensure your curls are frizz-free. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner. Once your hair is washed, follow with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream to smooth out your curly locks. Apply a quarter-sized amount to damp hair before blow-drying with a round brush.
If you have wavy hair…deeply nourish your mane with the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner. This shampoo and conditioner will leave your strands silky-soft. Then, apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair and blow-dry for sleek, polished hair.
If you have straight hair…add some volume to your straight mane! Use the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner to do just that. Make sure your hair isn't frizzy by following with one to two pumps of the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum.
Now that your hair is prepped, it’s time to give yourself a head of voluminous! Follow the steps below.
What you’ll need:
Wide barrel curling iron
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold Volume
Get the look:
Start by brushing your hair to make sure it’s tangle-free. You want to have a smooth mane before you start styling your ‘do!
Apply a heat protectant to prep your hair for the heat styling that’s coming up.
It’s time to curl! To get voluminous curls, you’ll want to use a wide barrel curling iron. Curl larger sections of hair than you normally would, around two-inch sections, to ensure each curl is full of body. If you have a lot of hair, consider splitting your hair into two layers—a top and a bottom layer—to make curling your hair a little easier.
Once you’ve curled your hair, gently comb through your curls with a wide-tooth comb to give them a looser, more carefree look.
Ready to make your hair extra voluminous? Spray your texture spray throughout your hair for an air-blown effect. Then, add even more volume to your roots with a volumizing spray.
Make sure your voluminous curls last all night by spritzing your locks with a final coat of hair spray!
Want to take your voluminous curls up a notch? It’s all in the details! Here are three ways to give your ‘do an added touch of something special.
A braided headband is a stunning accent to any hairstyle and just so happens to create the perfect boho-chic look when combined with voluminous curls. Learn how to create one in our article, How to Get a Braided Headband Hairstyle.
Don’t want to do any more styling? Add an accessory instead! Head over to our article, How to Wear a Trendy Head Wrap, for a little inspiration.
You can also spice up your hairstyle by adding in a pop of temporary hair color. Try coloring the ends of your mane with one of the shades of the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray or L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color. Both temporary hair colors wash out in just one shampoo, so you won’t be making a commitment to having colorful strands.
