The Ultimate Tutorial to Getting Big, Loose Curls

hair tutorial

Inspired by the over-the-top work that stylist Sam McKnight did at Chanel’s 2015 cruise show, our friends over at xoVain decided to give it a go and reinterpret the runway looks. A bit tamer, of course.

Using just hair rollers, sectional clips or bobby pins, a spray bottle, comb or brush, blow dryer, and curling iron (OK, so it’s kind of a lot, but who cares, you’re gonna get big, loose curls!), they were able to produce some pretty voluminous waves.

Here’s how to do it.

STEP 1: Clean and condition
Shampoo and condition hair and wrap in a towel. Since there is a lot of heat styling to come, they recommend using a leave-in conditioner to add moisture to strands and help with detangling.

STEP 2: Protect
Apply a heat protectant spray or serum evenly. If you suffer from dryness and frizz, try Moroccanoil Treatment. It never fails to add shine, control flyaways, and leave hair looking and feeling healthy.

STEP 3: Divide hair into 5-8 sections and secure with a clip
This keeps the hair out of the way and manageable for step four.

Step 4: Roll, spritz, repeat
To avoid frizz, make sure the hair you’re rolling is wet. Use your spray bottle to spritz each strand before combing and rolling. Wrap the hair tightly around the rollers and secure with a bobby pin or clip. Use large rollers if you want big, soft curls. Use smaller rollers if you want a tighter curl.
