After the Wet Set – Retro Styling

This is a super quick way to style your hair after you have curled it. This is a great style to do the day before you plan on washing it.

I would recommend only using Hairspray and a shine spray, nothing else will be required!

Basics : Wet Set – Longer Lasting Curls

A wet set in my opinion is the best way to get longer lasting curls.  Its also great because it gives your hair a break from heat styling.

The smaller  the roller the tighter the curl. I like to do my set with smaller rollers so the first day I have tight curls, second they are a bit messier and on the third day I usually brush through the curls  so its smooth from the root and the curls are at the ends. Some times I leave them for a fourth day and do an up-style.

Getting the curls to last

  • Don’t use too much product (it will weigh the hair down)
  • Use a wide toothed comb on the curls, only if you need to (not a brush)
  • Make sure that the hair is completely dry before taking them out

The products I used in the video were Redken Curl Spray and Garnier XXL Mouse.

I thought it might be helpful to start a series on Basic Steps that I can refer to in other video’s. I have already started with Foundation and that video is live now.

I will focus on basic techniques, not only in makeup but hair as well!

Up coming posts/videos will be focusing on (but not limited to) Contouring, Highlighting and Blush, Eyebrows, Mascara, Liners and Lips.

With hair I will do a regular wet se, cheats set, Blow dry , and other quick tips to get a great hairstyle in a jiffy!

(I am also interested in requests for other ‘Basics’ you may be interested in)
