The picture-perfect cascades of wavy hair sported by celebrities has long been an envied hairstyle. Here’s how to create this look on your own at home, thanks to an innovative new hairstyling tool.
Get Lauren’s Locks
It used to be that creating perfectly wavy locks (pictured here on Lauren Conrad) required you to wrap your hair around the barrel of an old-fashioned curling iron — making sure to hold the clamp open to avoid marks. Sultra’s new one-inch Bombshell curling rod ($130) has no clamp and will curl hair in half the time (with no annoying clamp creases!). The curling rod even includes a pink safety glove to protect your fingers.
Here’s how to use it:
Dry hair as you normally would, adding a small amount of some styling product.
Separate hair into sections. Wrap each around the rod, away from your face.
Allow your hair to cool completely. Then, lightly hairspray and run your fingers through the curls to loosen them up into waves.
