Voluminous curls last for days with this style!
Since the beginning of the new year, I decided to take better care of my hair. I didn’t want to stop styling it, but I knew I needed to cut down the amount of heat I put into it. The bubble wand is my saving grace! The curls last for over a week! It’s crazy! I put together a quick bubble wand tutorial because I know not a lot of people know how to use them. If you need volume and/or want your curls to last more than two days, keep reading!
Step 1: Section off the hair
I section my hair off so only the bottom layer is out. I tie the rest off with a scrunchie or a hair clip.
Step 2: Spray heat protectant
I use heat protectant on each layer before curling. Repeat this with each layer of hair.
Step 3: Wrap the hair
Take a 2 inch section of hair. I wrap the hair away from my face and in between each of the bubbles on the wand. Get as close to the scalp as possible and leaves an inch of hair at the ends to avoid damage.
Step 4: Straighten the ends
Majority of the time, my ends are too curly for my taste. I straighten just the ends of my hair to create a more piece-y, beachy look.
Step 5: Apply hair oil/anti-frizz spray and enjoy!
I use hair oil on my hair because it seems that this hairstyle gets my hair more frizzy than normal. A spritz of hair oil here and there takes away any unneeded frizz. I run my hands through my hair until I get my ideal amount of curliness. Run hands through but DO NOT BRUSH. You will regret it. Trust me. Other than that, you are good to go!
This bubble wand tutorial is a quick and easy way to get mermaid hair in minutes! This is one of the fastest hair styles I’ve been able to achieve that lasts the longest. I revive my curls the following day with some beach wave spray and it keeps the curls lasting for many days later. If you do this hairstyle, tag me (@kaylajfsmith) in your picture on Instagram and I will choose my favorite to win a prize! I can’t wait to see!
