Kate Moss looked amazing on January 24th as she inked her new contract as the new spokes model for the worldwide known Mango fashion.
Her touchable waves made this world famous fashion icon a triple threat and shows how waves are a big statement this year.

How to get this look: What’s great this year about curls and waves is the new techniques that create different looks with the same tool. Flat irons not only straighten the hair but also can create this look in less then 30 minutes. You want to use a flat iron with a beveled edge so you don’t have creases in the hair so you can achieve this soft but stunning look.

You also want to use the flat iron in a vertical direction and have vertical partings to create a wave pattern that flows nicely. It’s important to use a thermal spray before curling the hair to protect the hair from damage and also using a finishing spray for a polished look when finished.

Also, if it’s your first time trying them out, you may want to try bonded or “clip-in” extensions as well to be sure you like them and can take care of them before investing in the more expensive technique’s.

Curly Hairstyles 2012-Big Soft Curls

Curly Hairstyles 2012

Curly Hairstyles 2012

Ashley Greene’s curly hairstyle was to die for at the People’s Choice Awards on January, 11 2012! She paired a racy leather dress and black heels that completed the look. This Twilight Saga vixen definitely stood out with her non-uniformed soft curls as she worked the red carpet at the Nokia theater in Los Angeles. Curly Hairstyles in 2012 are here to stay and with a new twist. Curls are a great way to change up your look and in less then an hour you can give your hair a lot of personality.

How to get this look: This style only requires five materials, a 1 1/2 inch curling iron, a clip to section off your hair, a wide toothed comb, a light smoothing serum and a light hair spray. It’s important to start with clean dry hair before beginning. Some types of curls look great with a good amount of product but when wanting to create “It’s hard not to touch” curls, less product is best.

First, section off about a 2 inch section at the base and then clip the rest of the hair up at the crown. Lightly spray the 2 inch section of hair with hair spray. Take a small section of the hair and wrap it in a spiral around the curling iron. When curling hair this way, point the curling iron in a downward position and do not use the clamp on the curling iron. Simply wrap the small section of hair around the curling iron and hold for a few seconds. Let curl fall and do not touch or brush the hair immediately after curling. Repeat until that whole section is complete and then section off another 2 inch section and repeat the same steps until the whole head is complete. Before curling the very top section, part the hair the way you would like it to fall. When doing a middle part, try not to make it a perfectly strait part. A part that is slightly zigzagged or a little off centered looks best with carefree curls. After finishing the last section, let the last section cool off for a few minutes and then with a wide toothed comb, lightly brush through curls so the curls aren’t separated anymore. To finish the look, take a small amount of smoothing serum and run it through the hair to give it extra shine.
