How To Do Curly Hairstyles For Prom
Lucy Tuck from Marc Anthony walks you through an easy, curly hairstyle fit for prom. If you have a flat iron and hair spray, you can easily create this dramatic look.
I'm going to show you how to do curly hairstyles for prom. If you've already got curly hair, great! I use GHD styles to curl. You can use curling tongs if you feel more comfortable doing that.
Now I'm going to show you how to do an up do. The first stage of the up do is we're going to section the hair from the crown to the back of the ear. Don't make it too neat, because, again, with the curly hair, you don't want to see any straight lines through there.
We'll just clip that out of the way and do the same on the other side. What I'm doing is just spraying the hair and we're going to put it into a ponytail on the side so we're going to get a nice shape of curls. Just form it on one side, which is quite a glamorous look at the moment.
What we're going to do is take sections of the ponytail and, using your fingers, see where they want to go and start pinning them in to create a shape. Don't worry about it too much. Just work with the curl and see what way it wants to form.
What I'm doing is taking small pieces of the ponytail, and with my fingers, gently twisting it around the hair. Letting pieces fall out, just so it leaves it quite natural, and gently pinning it just behind the curls so it forms a nice shape. Don't worry too much if it's not forming a perfect shape.
What you're going to be doing is pinning different bits in and that's going to form nicely as you add that shape. It'll give you a really nice, finished look. I'm going to do exactly the same thing until I've curled up all of these pieces of hair just to form a nice shape, and then we'll go on to the next stage.
What we've done, is we've just left pieces coming out of the hair. With curly hair, it's always nice to have a bit more movement in there, rather than keeping it too strong or structured. As well, we want to keep it a little bit more informal at the same time.
So just leaving a couple little sections out works really nicely. Now, what I'm going to do, is with the same section that we've let down, work in triangular sections. Again, don't worry too much about them because with curly hair, we don't want to leave any straight lines through there.
What I'm going to do, is just with my fingers, take that triangular section and we want to twist the hair into a shape. And by taking pieces, we're going to pull parts of that out. And what we can then do is pin that in and it's going to flow nicely with the bun we've already created.
What I'm going to do is repeat this through all of the sections. Again, just twisting the hair and then just pinching the first section and loosening up the curl. That way, you can then start to manoeuvre that and work that into the shape as you're pinning it in.
I've finished that side, just adding the rest of the hair into the small bun we made in the back. Again, loads of movement. Don't worry too much about the curls.
You want it to look quite natural, quite informal. And then, just at this side, all you want to do is take that section off and we literally just want to work that into the rest of the hair and pin that in somewhere nice so it tucks in nicely together. Just tucking the pin in nicely, just so it gives you a nice, sleek shape from one direction and a little more of a textured curl in the other.
It just makes that a little more glamorous. Then you just want to dress the ends into it, just to hide those pins. And you can tuck in the curls you don't want.
And that's how to do curly hairstyles for prom.
