It doesn’t get any easier than these understated yet fancy curls.

1. Prep your hair.

Start off by prepping your clean, dry hair with a heat protection spray. TIGI Copyright Custom Create Heat Protection Spray is our go-to for dependable protection against hot tools and for a formula that really gets the job done. Spritz this throughout your hair and comb through it with your fingers to ensure full coverage.

2. Curl and secure.

Use a 1.5-inch curling iron to create medium sized curls all throughout your hair. The key to a long-lasting style is letting your curls cool before breaking them up with your fingers. Then, a quick mist of TRESemmé 24 Hour Volumizing Hair Spray is all you need to secure the style and make sure it lasts all week long.

Your hair will likely start to feel a little greasy and oily as the week goes on. Be sure to have a dry shampoo like Dove Refresh+Care Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo available to revive your curls and give them a boost of volume.

That’s it! You can wear these curls down, in a half updo, up in a ponytail or even a bun. Enjoy the holidays and make sure that your hair is one less thing you have to worry about!
