5 Quick steps to creating the scrunch hairstyle

All Things Hair Team | 19 March 2018

Scrunch hair is fun, pretty, and absolutely easy!

If you’re going for a sexy vibe that has just the right amount of cool and glam, you might love the scrunch curls hairstyle. It’s a great idea if you don’t want anything too feminine and instead prefer a ‘do that’s chill enough to take anywhere, anytime.

Scrunch hair is similar to the beachy waves hairstyle in that it features carefree, natural looking waves. This one is just a bit bigger and messier because it involves teasing. It is, however, equally fabulous! Learn how to create this look in five easy steps. We’ve got the step-by-step tutorial below for your reference!

How to master the scrunch hair look

scrunch hair step 1

Prep your hair

This hairstyle requires heat styling so you need to make sure your hair is strong enough to stand up to the damaging effects of your heated styling tools. Washing with TRESemmé Platinum Strength Shampoo and TRESemmé Platinum Strength Conditioner not only repairs up to two years’ worth of damage, it also helps reinforce hair’s natural protective barrier, protecting it from future damage.

Add texture

When your hair is at least 50% dry, spray it with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to add texture and body to your tresses. Apply about five minutes before you start blow drying your hair.

Start curling

When your hair is completely dry, start curling by wrapping a section of hair around your curling iron, forming a letter S as you do so. Repeat this process until all of your hair is curled. When you’re done, run your fingers through your tresses to loosen the curls a bit.
