How Men Can Go From Straight to Curly Hair in 6 Simple Steps
Guys, are you wondering how to get curly hair for men? Before you do something drastic like book an appointment for a perm or try to take a hot iron to your hair, know that getting natural-looking curls for men is probably easier than you think.
Because men’s hair is usually too short for a curling iron, guys are getting more creative to achieve freshly tousled curled locks. With the right styling products and tools in your arsenal, even guys with stick-straight hair can get a little body and wave. As long as you don’t have a buzz cut, you can add naturally curly or wavy textures to straight hair.
These tricks work best for guys with longer hair on the top and shorter sides, medium length hair, and guys who rock long ‘dos.
- Heat protectant
- Sea salt spray
- Pomade/hair styling cream
Here are the easiest ways to get curls for men that will stay in place all-day.
Step 1: Wash Your Hair
You need clean, damp hair for best results. Use your regular shampoo, or try an all-natural rejuvenating shampoo and towel dry your hair until it’s no longer sopping wet. If your hair typically runs on the more frizzy or dry side, use a conditioner as well.
Tip: Damp hair is the easiest to work with!
Step 2: Protect Your Mane
Generously apply a good heat protectant spray through your hair. Using a heat protectant will reduce heat damage (duh), but it will also make your hair look shinier, help your hair dry quicker, and help tame unwanted frizz. Spray this in your hair from roots to tips when it’s still damp.
Step 3: Take it to The Beach
If you can’t get to the beach, a sea salt spray will do the trick. Salt spray mimics perfectly naturally tousled, textured curls after a day at the beach. Work a sea salt spray through hair from roots to tips. Sea salt spray is essential to adding natural-looking waves and adding voluminous curls to your hair.
Step 4: Blow Dry Your Hair
At this point, your strands should be properly prepped. If you have a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer, put it on. It helps better distribute the heat to enhance your curls and reduce frizz. But if you don’t have one, don’t worry, just use a good quality hair dryer to dry your hair. When drying your hair, scrunch your hair from the bottom with your finger to help work in the sea salt spray.
Tip: You can add more sea salt spray as your hair dries to amp up the volume and body. Just spray, scrunch, and lift for more body.
Step 5: Rock Your Final Look
Keep your curls intact with styling products that will hold your waves and add texture. When your hair is dry, run your fingers to get it looking just right and add pliable pomade or cream to keep your curls on lockdown. Keep playing with it until your ‘do is just right. Now you have great looking curls.
Step 6: Treat Your Tresses
Once you wear your awesome-looking curls for a couple of days and its time for a wash, give your hair a boost of nourishment. Heat styling and salt can dry out the hair and make it more fragile and frizzy. Opt for a hair mask or slather coconut oil on your hair to give it a boost of moisture. This way, the next time you want to rock a curly hairstyle, your strands will be prepped.
Let’s learn a no heat style! ￼Start by gathering your hair to one side ￼Begin a rope braid in the front by twisting two pieces. Add hair to each section and twist again. Continue this pattern until you reach your ear. ￼Split the remaining hair into two. While holding the section pop index finger and thumb through. Grab through the other section and repeat! Secure with an elastic. Xo
THIS DERMATOLOGISTS FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER
Cleansers are an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, but it can be difficult to find the right one for your skin. The new Aveeno Calm + Restore nourishing oat cleanser has been my new go-to daily cleanser and I love it. ❤️🙌 Aveeno has always been a brand to create formulations that target dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is no different. This cleanser is great for people all skin types but would likely benefit dry or combination skin most. The incorporated oat complex helps restore build the skin’s moisture barrier and soothe itchy skin. There is no stripping effect with this cleanser, which is something too always look for with your cleanser. Other pros about this product are its fragrance free (limiting any irritant reactions) as well as great pricing. On amazon, you can find a bottle for under $10.‼️‼️ TRUTH: If you are trying to fight acne or blackheads I recommend against this cleanser and try finding something with salicylic acid. Have you tried the new Aveeno cleanser? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ⤵️
✨Cute Bun Hairstyle✨
Hi Guys!!! I recently saw this scrolling on Pinterest and I wanted to recreate it! It’s SO easy and took about 5 minutes total!! It looks so fancy yet it’s so simple! I have medium to thin hair but this can work on pretty much all hair types! (: (tip: spray texture spray beforehand) this helps it stay in better!)☺️ HOW TO: -I like to pull my bangs out first (: - you’re going to section it as if you’re doing a half up half down hairstyle -then you’re going to start twisting that part of your hair -I twist it around like I’m doing a ballerina bun😅 -then I secure it with a hair tie ❤️ -you can leave like that! Or I like to pull it out a little so it’s more loose!✨😊

Skincare Products ( that i have been LOVING )
Recently, I have been super into skincare and keeping up with my skin’s appearance as I am growing myself in the beauty industry ( meaning that I am now CONSTANTLY doing makeup on myself! ) Fluff and Starface both sent me these products to try out, and I have been LOVING them so far! I have combination skin, and this routine is PERFECT for me! My new three favorite skincare products that I have been enjoying as of lately are 1) FLUFF - Face Oil #1 , which is 100% jojoba oil, which I used as an all natural makeup remover! Jojoba oil is super moisturizing and amazing for literally all skin types- especially acne prone and sensitive skin! 2) FLUFF cleanser , which is again - all natural - containing jojoba oil, hemp seed oil (which moisturizes without clogging pores, and balances out oily skin), ashwagandha root (which stimulates production of natural skin oils), and aloe vera (which reduces blemishes and acne, as well as lightens blemishes on the face). This cleanser does a great job of removing makeup as well as leaving you skin moisturized and soft! 3) STARFACE Moisture on Mars Hydrating Face Cream! A little bit of this product really goes a long way, leaving your face super soft, hydrated, and all with a SERIOUS glow!!! I highly recommend checking these 3 products all out! They all work great separately, but in my opinion as I have been using them cohesively, my skin has been looking and feeling great ( besides that one pimple 🙄 ). xx Isabelle
