7 Tips on Creating Romantic Curls ...

The thing with romantic curls is that they're loose and care-free, while still adding lots of body and style to your hair.

Romantic curls are different from corkscrew curls or banana curls.

And they're not the same thing as "waves" either.

Using the 7 tips on creating romantic curls found in this article, you'll certainly be ready for your next date night!

1. Curl in Sections

It's best to divide your hair into 3 sections: ear to ear, temple to temple, and top of the head.

You will pin up the top 2 sections and start curling the "ear to ear" section first.

After that section is complete, you will move on to your "temple to temple" section, and finish with the top of your head.

This will give your curls more definition and texture, and will make curling much easier, especially if you have layers.

2. Watch Your Iron Size

Though I feel it's better to do romantic curls with a flat iron, you can also achieve great curls with a curling iron.

(Or course, that's what they're for, right?) However, if you're going to use a curling iron for romantic curls, make sure it's a bigger barrel like a 1 1/2 " or so.

Remember, romantic curls are loose and feminine, and the bigger the barrel, the looser the curls.

3. Mousse after Wash

I find my hair to have better hold (without having crunchy curls) if I mousse my hair after washing and before drying.

After it's dry, I brush through it and then proceed with my curling.

This gives your hair a bit more hold without dealing with a lot of hard hair.

4. Use a Heat Protector

One of the key ingredients to romantic curls is soft, well maintained hair.

As great as it is to use heated tools on our hair, it's also very important to use a protein spray on your hair to protect it from the damage of heat - especially your ends.

I don't know if there is any brand that is better when it comes to this product or not, but I do know that TREsemme has a good one.

But as long as it is for the purpose of protecting your hair from heat damage, you should be fine with just about any brand.
