Its Carnival time again and this year go prepared with the most fun, flirty and flowing locks! Embrace the party atmosphere with curly, braided hair – perfect to complete any carnival outfit. Here are the top hair styling tips from renowned British Hairdresser Nicky Clarke; follow them for flawless hair and party like you’re Queen of the Carnival!
Work a serum through towel dried hair. Be careful not to overload the hair with the product, it should look natural yet polished.
Power dry the hair to around 80% dry using the DesiRED professional AC drier, using your fingers to run through the hair. Then take random large sections and dry with a paddle brush to add volume; finish by drying all the hair back. Plait it! Using a pin tail comb to section off hair for the braid. Take a section from that point in a triangle shape to two inches depth which you can then carry level with the top of your ear. Then just do a normal French Plait on the head to the end of the section – do it tight, you can always loosen it out at the end when styling.
The next step is to take large sections around the face. Using the DesiRED ceramic tong, gently wrap the hair around the barrel. Release the hair immediately and run your fingers through, loosening the curls around a centered parting. There will be lots of hair to fall on top and cover the bands and grips. The charmingness of this look is that you can throw your hair around and you will see the plait through the hair
Above all, it’s important to have fun with your hair because it’s carnival time! Don’t be afraid to experiment with more than one plait or even accessories to funk up your do. Loosen curls to make hair look messy-chic for all that dancing!
