Sprial Curls for Short Hair Tutorial

Last week I was 'Signature Straight,' and this week I'm 'Spiral Curls,' for the #downfor30 John Frieda Frizz Ease challenge! Just because I have short hair, doesn't mean I can't rock the spiral curls and beachy wave look. Below I'll show you the steps I take to get this look.

Here's a list of products I used: 
 - Wide tooth comb
 - John Frieda Frizz Ease Go Curlier
 - Blow dryer with defuser (defuser optional)
 - Hair clip
 - Curling iron

1 - Comb through clean and towel tried hair with a wide tooth comb, adjusting part to where it usually falls.

2 - Spritz John Frieda Frizz Ease from roots to ends. The bottle suggests starting with 10-12 sprays, more or less depending on your hair length and thickness. I always like to scrunch my hair after applying product for curls, to help the curls form. The above picture shows you the slight wave I have in my hair without blow drying and straightening.
3 - Gently blow dry hair with defuser (I didn't have a defuser available, so I used my blow dryer on the lowest setting, and kept scrunching as I went along).

4 - After hair is completely dry, go through small to medium sections (depending on how much help with curls your hair needs) and use the curling iron to add spirals. I used a small spiral iron, in which I have to use my hand to wrap the hair around (this takes practice to do without burning fingers!). The below pictures shows you how my hair looks just after drying without using a round brush (left side) and how it looks after using the curling iron in it (right side). 

5 - I took small sections of my hair and positioned the iron behind the section of hair, and then wrapped the hair away from my face. 
6 - After curling, you can comb through curls to loosen them up and make them look more natural.

Voila! Spiral Curls for Short Hair is complete!

'Signature Straight' Hair Style Tutorial with John Frieda Frizz Ease


Finally - it's 80 degrees out! Well, technically not yet, but the forecast for metro Detroit today says 80 degrees, so I'm pretty excited. I'm a girl who loves the hot weather. I don't worry about humidity because I know I have the right hair products to ensure a good hair day no matter what the weather is!

Not just for the humid weather, but year round, I turn to John Frieda's Frizz Ease products to tame fly-aways and keep my hair from frizzing. One essential product for me is John Frieda's Straight Fixation styling cream. I use this daily to get my 'signature straight' hair style. Here are the steps I take to get this look:

Tools and products I use:
 - round brush 
 - clip(s)
 - comb
 - hair dryer 
 - flat iron
 - Straight Fixation styling cream
1 - Comb through clean hair with wide tooth comb and part your hair where it usually falls or off to the side. 
2 - Apply a dime size amount of Frizz Ease Straight Fixation to your hair and evenly distribute with a comb (use more or less depending on the thickness and length of hair)
3 - Divide your hair into sections with your clip(s) (I usually start with one side and section into 3 parts at a time)
4 - Use hair dryer and round brush to blow dry each section at a time. I use my brush to roll my hair straight out, away from my face, and then under, making sure the hair dryer stays pointed at the round brush and hair until the very end, so the ends are straight.
5 - After all the sections are done, I like to take the front chunk of my hair, on both sides of my part (maybe still a little damp), and blow dry it forward, and then re-part it. My hair dresser gave me this trick. It helps to give lift and body to the front portion of my hair, so it doesn't lay flat against my forehead. 
6 - When my hair is completely dry I go through the sections again (without clipping) with my flat iron. I don't use a very hot iron. I usually set my temperature to around 250-300 degrees. 
7 - Voila! My 'signature straight' hair style. 


Now that summer is creeping up, everyone should be armed with Frizz Ease products to help fight the humidity and frizz! Just because it’s summer it doesn’t mean you can’t wear your hair down and proud!
