Steal these secrets from a beauty queen! Follow former Miss South Africa Rolene Strauss’ step-by-step guide to creating her signature curls.
After washing your hair, apply a styling cream before leaving it to air-dry. Coating strands in a styling cream and leaving them to dry naturally will help to boost your hair’s natural texture.
Once dry, divide your hair into sections, tease the roots and spray a little hairspray before curling with a curling wand. Yes, you heard right… hairspray. The hairspray actually helps to create hold so that your curls won’t ‘slip’ when you set them.
The direction of the curling is extremely important depending on the look you want (all the one side or waves away from the face on both sides).
Curl and pin the curls in position while they’re still hot. Using this technique will help your hair to retain the curl.
Now it’s time for bed – sleep with my curls pinned.
Wake up, take out the pins and comb through – voila! – gorgeous locks.
