Loose, imperfect curls that look tousled and carefree, not uniform and fake?
It can be done!
If you’re struggling to get Alexa Chung or Taylor Swift's 'do, here’s the reason: the barrel shape you’re using is totally wrong. To get the vertical zigzags that look especially fab on mid-length strands, you need to use an OVAL curling iron.
Just wrap one-inch sections of hair around the wand and allow the curl to cool in the palm of your hand before releasing completely and shaking it out.
A few to scope out: BaBylissPro Nano Titanium 1" Oval Barrel Curling Iron and GHD Curve Classic Wave Wand.
