Hello every one in internet land! My name is Tara and I work at the most adorable salon in downtown Huntington Beach, Ca called Meleesa The Salon. I just wanted to make myself known and show you some things that inspire me and how I go about creating looks in my own way. for this post I was inspired by the classic vintage 1930s look worn by Reese Witherspoon in the film Water For Elephants (seen below).
Curly Hair Tips:
1 – Start by using a curl supportive shampoo and conditioner, they normally are specially formulated to hydrate and revive curls. Meleesa recommends, Curl Conscious by bumble and bumble
2 – Using a masque to revive and awaken curls is a great weekly must! Curl masque for sure Meleesa’s pick
3 – Always comb our curls with a wide tooth comb in the shower meanwhile the conditioner is on, this will prevent the curls from starting to frizz.
4 – Wrap you hair on a towel and get all the excess moisture out.
5 – Unwrap the hair and shake loosely avoiding breaking the curls up. “remember curls like to live in families, if you separate them they get unhappy and Frizz!” Meleesa explains
6 – Apply Curl Creme by bumble and bumble , squeeze about a quarter size of creme ( size depends on how thick and long the hair is) this is for shoulder length hair moderate density. Work the creme on your palms and distribute root to ends, don’t forget the bottom of the hair so get in there gently.
7 – Start by separating hair and twirling curls, we do this to break the natural pattern and loosen the curl, if you want to tighten the curl twirl tighter. (use your finger like when you think to hard and twist your hair around your finger)
8 – Scrunch with a towel to remove excess moisture and pump curl up.
9 – Air dry for a softer look or diffuse for more dramatic look
10 – Enjoy and embrace your Curls! All curls are unique, this are a few tips to help you out, if you want more information and want to learn how to work with your unique curls, make an appointment today with Meleesa 714-969-7199
