Hi everyone, todays post is going to be about curling hair with an air styler. I used the Andrew Barton air styler, this costs around £20 on argos. It comes with three heads, a flat brush for straightening hair, and head for curling and a head for body. Today I’m going to use the head for body, you can use this on wet or dry hair but it works best when you’re hair is around 90% dry. If yours tried of trying to give yourself a blow out using your hair dryer and like me you struggle juggling your comb, brush and hairdryer without having a mental breakdown then get yourself one of these. So lets get started!
I let my hair air dry today, not something I usually do because my hair ends up a curly frizzy mess not even my beloved GHD can save. I find with this air styler it gives the effect of blowdried hair but all the shape and style you want. So start, part your hair depending on how much hair your have and take a section around an inch and a half big. The bigger the section the loose the curl. I chose curl my hair away from the face, brush it though the section of hair a few times and then wrap it up to my head (if that makes any sense at all haha!) I left this for about 20-30 seconds or so and as you can see I was left with a nice curl, again the longer you leave this the tighter the curl.
To get body to the root of the hair, take the airstyler and place it under the section, leave for a few seconds and pull up and brush through the hair.
I section a bit of my hair behind my fringe and again curl this away from my face. If you have a longer fringe you can just curl this with the rest of the hair but if yours is shorter like mine pull it all forward (this helps get rid of my cowlick parting) and curl this towards your face. This then flicks back and blends in well with the rest of the curls. Tease some of the hair if you like, my obsession with big hair means styling my hair without teasing is near impossible for me. Hairspray all over to make sure everything stays put, we want blow out not windswept. And there we go! For a more blowout look switch up the directions of the curls and make them a lot looser.
Hope this helps!
Lots of Love
