Seems like a long time since it’s been trendy to wear curls in your hair. Guess what? They’re on their way back onto the hair fashion scene and I just have to breathe a little sigh of relief.
It has been far too long that the focus has been on flat, straightened, silky hair that does nothing more than just hang there; mocking anyone with the slightest degree of natural wave in his or her hair.
Don’t get me wrong; I love Brazilian Keratin treatments as a styling option but out of it, a society of clones were formed. This is where I quote William Cowper and say, “Variety’s the spice of life, that gives it all its flavour.” (I’ll refrain from providing a picture of Cowper and his wig; Cher-like curls, for fear that it may just ruin the impending trend of curls. Oh, what the hell, here he is.)
Now, this trend of waves and curly locks seems to have begun with the looser and carefree style, called “the beach wave.” The beach wave, in its defining moments, started as a very loose, light ‘S’ pattern that was barely perceptible in the landscape of keratin straightened and flat ironed hair.
Slowly, this light wave is becoming tighter, more pronounced, and is, mostly, accomplished by means of damp setting on special rollers and, more predominately, by use of electrical appliances, such as, curling wands, irons, and flat iron techniques designed to create bend, rather than straightness, in the hair.
So far, permanent waves have yet to make a strong comeback, on the scene but it is only a matter of time before they will be utilized to support this hair trend, as it gets curlier and curlier.
This is where hair extensions can come in handy. There’s no doubt that massive curls can be achieved using human hair extensions.
So it begs the question: should you color your curly hairstyle? This personal decision should be discussed by you and your stylist. It’s imperative that you select an expert hair colorist, or you could end up with a hair disaster.
With curly hair looming on the horizon, I would only offer up this advice: Make sure you choose your hair professional, wisely. The determining factors in a great permanent decision, as opposed to a bad permanent decision, begins with the haircut and ends with the correct, or the less desirable, incorrect, chemical alteration of the hair.
Whatever your decision may be regarding just heat styling of a wave into your hair or, the choice of a great permanent decision, I would encourage you to contact me for a free consultation to discuss what I can do to make your hair as beautiful as it can be.
