Hey dolls! How are we all? I don’t like how it’s getting dark really early! It just means that winter’s VERY close! Oh, & not to mention how hard it can be taking pictures for blogging. Also… the poor, POOR, lighting in my room doesn’t help either! So yesterday evening I thought I’d do a HAIR post! Now there are 3 girls whose hair is absolutely on point every time I see them… & they’re the KARDASHIAN sisters!

I think they’re all GORGEOUS & love their taste in fashion & make-up! So I thought I’d do a tutorial on how to get those famous Kardashian curls! Of course they must have hair stylists dolling them up everyday… BUT, I know an easy way to achieve this look! There are LOTS of pictures to come… So I’ll try & keep the typing to a minimal Firstly, here’s what I like to use when getting my curl on …
Left – Right
Babylis Pro CURL 210 (Highest heat setting (21oC) – they get VERY hot so be careful!)
Foxy Curls by Bed Head
Maximum Hold Hair Spray by Tesco
Natural Bristle Cushion Brush by Trevor Sorbie
GHD IV Styler Straightners
Heat Defence Smooth by TRESemme
(That yellow thing is a random hair bobble – to help section my hair! LOL)
Start off with STRAIGHT hair. Mine’s naturally wavy so I always straighten it so I know where I’m going when curling! Make sure to use heat protector when straightening & curling! I section my hair as I go along. My hair is very THICK so I make 4 rough sections & I let them down once each section is done! Below is pretty much where I section my hair! (I know, it’s UBER long!)
When curling strands of your hair, you want to take fairly BIG strands… Something like this…
To get BIG VOLUPTUOUS curls don’t clamp the hair into the curlers, but simply WRAP the strands around the tongs. Like this… Wrap in DIFFERENT directions so your hair doesn’t curl together in same way. So basically, curl wrapping your hair ABOVE of the barrel and UNDER the barrel every so often! Always point the curlers DOWN & at an ANGLE.
You can HAIRSPRAY your hair once your finish every SECTION. I like to spray it once I’ve done 2 sections, for looser curls. In the final section you need to PART the top of your hair, where you want it to sit (I did mine a little off centre). It’s also best to curl the back section as a whole with the curlers pointing to either your left/right SIDE!
For the strands of hair near your FACE always curl AWAY from it. This will open up your face for the final look!
Leaving LARGER GAPS on the tongs when curling will give you LOOSE curls – making your hair look LONGER
Leaving SMALLER GAPS on the tongs when curling will give you TIGHTER curls – making your hair look SHORTER!
DON’T STOP THERE To get that Kardashian curl look the TRICK is to BRUSH your hair with a natural bristle brush…
I know it sounds a little pointless, but it really gives it that extra touch for the PERFECT look! Pop a bit of FOXY CURLS or any other curling product for a little definition & HAIRSPRAY for that extra hold… & VOILÀ!
It sounds like it takes forever, but the curlers I use are pretty damn good… To get the whole look done it probably takes me about 20ISH mins?! Not bad ay?! If you do try this out, please let me know how it works for you I hope you enjoyed this long, but hopefully not that boring, hair tutorial Also, if you have any QUESTIONS just pop them into the comments box :)
