Last week I fell down a rabbit hole of luscious, casual, bouncy curls. I have always loved big hair. In fact, I always joke that I like to have big Texas hair using my hot rollers. But then I started to watch Allegra Shaw’s Instastories and noticed a Jennifer Grey circa late 1980’s layered, shag, casual curls trend was catching fire.

Then I watched totally engrossed as Christine Dovey debated on her stories if she should get a perm… I voted yes!

Pins ensued and I quickly decided this was a trend I MUST try! Honestly, this is my entertainment during lockdown (I live in Southern Ontario, where we are in a current stay-at-home order).

So, I armed myself with what I had on hand and got to work. I should say, I have LOTS of hair. So I knew it would take way to long to curl all of my hair with my thin curling iron. So instead I took all of my smallest hot rollers and tightly rolled them into my hair sporadically, leaving the top layer and other parts free for me to hand curl.

Shop all of the products shown above here in my Amazon Store.

I did have to go back and clean up some of the hot roller pieces, but the mix of the two methods gave this very casual, less uniformed look I was pleased with. I then went back and sprayed my hair with hairspray and used smoothing product to tame the entire look.

I am thrilled with the outcome and definitely plan on doing this look a lot more in the future. Also, I should mention that by the next day I had really beautiful beachy waves.

This has now tempted me to add more layers to my hair… hmmmm 😉

How To Create Fast, Easy And Long Lasting Beachy Curls

Hair tutorialThe tutorial request I get the most is for hair tutorials.  Hair has always been my thing.  Ever since I got my first set of rollers, I have been hooked!  I am always experimenting and trying to emulate other hairstyles whether it’s braids, up-do’s etc… but my constant go-to hairstyle is beachy curls.  I partly love this style because I can spend a bit of time one day creating this look and then manipulate my hair with different braids, twists and up-dos for two or three days before washing it again.  Let’s face it, as a busy mom I do not have time to style or even wash my hair everyday.  Here it is, I hope you enjoy it!
