Like scrunchies and headbands, crimping is another hairstyle trend going through something of a revival right now. Unlike the frazzled, frizzy locks of yore, however, this season's crimped styles are much gentler on you strands; you don't even need a crimper to get the look!
There are two easy ways to achieve a perfectly crimped texture: with and without heat. You can find out how to do both by following the instructions below.
'Crimped' hair with heat (but no crimper)
Starting with completely dry hair, spritz Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. Tightly braid your hair in several small sections, so that you end up with about ten or so braids all around your head. You can work in larger sections to get a wider crimp if you prefer.
Flat iron each braid, then leave them to cool. When you're done, take the braids out and shake your fingers through your hair. Gently brush it all through and finish with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
'Crimped' hair without heat
Starting with slightly damp hair - either shower fresh or misted with water - apply Tousle Waves Spray throughout, then braid the hair as above.
Clip the braids up and do whatever you like until your hair is dry. Then, take the braids out, run your fingers through your hair, and brush it all through as gently as possible. As above, finish with plenty of Bold Control Hairspray.
