Create hair curls without heat in 6 steps



Prep hair for curls without heat.

Start by brushing your tresses to remove any tangles, then apply a pea-sized amount Toni & Guy Wave Memorising Balm to your mid lengths and ends. This ‘setting lotion‘ will help you define your curls without heat and allow you to revive your curls by simply scrunching!


Create pin curls.

Use a clip to section your hair and keep your tresses out of your way while you create your pin curls. Take a small section of hair (roughly 2 inches) and wrap it around two fingers. Use a hair pin to secure the curl.

Want to create spiral curls without heat? Just make sure that you tightly wrap a 1-2 inch section of hair to create a stylish spiral curl.


Pin all of your hair.

Repeat step 2 until you’ve pin curled all of your hair. Once you have a full head of pin curls leave them to set. Since we are creating curls without heat, it’s best to leave your curls to set for a few hours, or even better, overnight!


Release your pin curls.

Now that you’ve left your pin curls to set, it’s time to let them down! Remove the pins from your hair to release them.



Finger comb your hair.

Finally, gently loosen your hair with your fingers or brush (depending on how loose you want your curls).


Final look.

Finish off the look with a generous spray of the VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray and there you have it: beautiful curls without heat!
