Makeup Mondays: Yet Another "No Heat Curls" Tutorial

As if we haven't had enough of them, right?

Well anyway, this is my rendition - which is basically like the others, except done by and featuring me.


And this tutorial is exceptionally amazing because I HATE doing hair.  Seriously.  I cannot straighten, curl, blowdry, tease, updo, etc. without giving up after 5 minutes.  That's how pathetic I am.

My hair and I are not the best of friends.  It's lucky if it gets brushed 2 times a week.  It's like that really annoying friend you have that you don't have the heart to cut from your life but you still can't chat with for more than 5 minutes before making up some excuse to leave.

Anyway, so this one is pretty easy.  I did it so I'm sure you can do it too - if you haven't already done it before.  I don't even really need to do a step-by-step tutorial, but I'll do it anyway.  You know, just because I'm awesome like that.

 1.  Part your hair in the middle, Wednesday Addams style.  Then twist one section of your hair outwards (away from your face) and roll into a low, tight bun.

2.  This one's a no-brainer, but repeat the process on the other section.

3.  Leave it bun'd up for as long as possible - the longer you keep it up, the stronger and more defined the curl will be.

I kept mine bun'd up since yesterday and took it out this morning after I got up.  Hello - two days of hairstyles!  You really can't go wrong with this one.

 4.  When you're ready, take out and shake 'em a little.  Your hair, not your ta-ta's.  Though, we all should do that every once in a while.

5.  Now this one's important!  Unless you're trying to look like Simba after he shakes out his mane in the Lion King, DO. NOT. BRUSH. YOUR. HAIR.  Instead, take a section of hair and separate it into smaller sections until you're satisfied with the look.

6.  Last step - and an optional one - is to smooth out any frizzies with whatever you normally use and spray the curls lightly with hairspray to keep it holding longer.  Don't forget to take a picture of how great you look.

And that's it - you're done.  And I'm pretty sure you've got awesome curls.

AND you don't have to walk around lookin' like a hot mess with your hair rolled into a headband like some other curl tutorials.

You're welcome.

  1. haha I'm always really careful about my makeup but I really neglect my outfit + hair. I kind of just leave it... I sometimes don't even brush it. THe most I'll do is a braid at night then untie it for some loose waves :P

  2. Cute curls... I cant wait till my hair gets a little longer to try this. The funny thing is my hair is already naturally curly so I don't really need to do much. I want to try bigger curls too..RoRos World

  3. The hair looks so cute! If I tried that, it wouldn't come out that great. :/

  4. looks great!! but my hair doens't stay wavy unless i apply heat. i have teflon hair that resists everything except super hot 450F curling wands.

  5. This looks lovely!!
    there is no way mine would look like that if I tried it :(

  7. Whoop whoop. I hit my 100 followers and you hit 500!! Congrats Twin. I think its a collab giveaway time! lol.

    great hair tutorial. as always.


  8. OMG! I do this all the time! It works like magic! I like to leave it over night, then I wake up with pretty beachy curls :) and if I'm in the middle of lectures I'd do the same, but one big hair bun, so they don't lose the curls. Such an easy way to make your hair pretty! :)

    Hope you have a great week! Hugs
