Celebrity hair stylist Betsy Reyes offers some tips:
“When I have a client who has naturally curly hair, I dry it with a diffuser, head turned upside down, patiently and gently allowing the natural curl to form undisturbed. When it is fully dried I section the hair from the bottom up and take only the curls that didn’t form well and wrap them around a skinny curl iron (pending on natural curl size) then I pull the curl from root to bottom with my thumb and index finger (this allows it to not set so perfectly to give it a more natural look). Follow this through until you reached the top. When you get to the top, you should not fight the curl direction or make parts, go with the flow. If height is needed, tease then curl the under parts of the top crown/part area. Leave it down or use this as a great base for a fun up-do.
“When doing the up-do, its key to not disrupt the curl pattern. Keep it real soft by flowing with the curls. Its best when you leave the front and the sides sectioned off until last. Let your creativity do the rest.”
