How to curl short hair with Zoe Newlove
Wash and blow-dry.
Section and curl.
The trick is to keep the curl going in the same direction, so twist the straighteners away from your face, so that your hair is gently wrapped around it. Then, pull your straighteners down until you reach the ends. This should leave you with a nice, bouncy curl.
Apply serum and tease curls.
Accessorize and secure with bobby pins.
Then, gather small sections of hair at the front, twist them upwards and using the hairband as guide, secure your hair with bobby pins. Continue tucking all of the loose hair upwards into the headband until you’ve formed an updo. Finish with a spritz of the TRESemmé Ultimate Hold Hairspray.
