For formal events, we always want the most intricate of hairstyles to go with our outfit for the night. We picture a complicated updo, or lots of jeweled clips, or maybe a braid that no one has seen before. Unfortunately, reality then sets in that creating these styles alone can be tough and unrealistic for anyone hairstyling-challenged. Just because you can’t pull off a crown braid bun with studded bobby pins in time for your event, doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful style! We love the brushed out curls look for any fancy event! This look is super easy to create and it looks like you got a professional to do it for you. Learn our fave tips and products to create this style:
Create a Soft, Brushed Out Curls Look
1. Blow Dry Your Hair First
Achieving the soft aspect of these brushed out curls is going to require a soft and smooth base. Starting out with hair that’s been blown out will give you that smooth look you want. If you don’t want to apply that much heat on your hair in one day, try blowing it out the night before. Get that perfect blowout look by using some TRESemmé Thermal Creations Blow Dry Accelerator Spray before styling.
2. Create Medium-Sized Curls
When it comes time to curl your hair, we recommend going for a medium curl. You don’t want your curls to be too tight because brushing them out will be a mess, but, if they’re too loose you will lose the curl immediately.
3. Brush Gently
Now comes the fun part! It’s time to brush out those curls. Be gentle when you do this, you don’t want to separate the curls, you just want to loosen them. You don’t need to start at your roots, just hold a section you curled and run your brush through it a few times. You’ll know they’re ready when they’re a little fluffy and somewhat relaxed.
4. Finish with Hairspray
For this style, it’s important to finish with a lightweight hairspray to set the look. Give your hair a few spritzes of TRESemmé TRES Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Smooth Hold Level 2 and you’ll be all set!
