How-To: Dominique Swain's Cutesy Curls

How-To: Dominique Swain's Cutesy Curls

Wednesday night at the 2008 ESPYs Giant Event, which was hosted by Eli Manning, actress Dominique Swain arrived with a clean and polished makeup look and flirty finger curls.

This hairdo is simple to achieve and adds a great deal of style, volume, and bounce to straight or naturally wavy hair.

  • STEP 1: Begin by towel-drying your hair and applying a palmful of mousse. Add a tiny drop of serum to the lengths and ends and spray a heat-protecting product all over. Next, brush out snarls using a wide-toothed comb.

  • STEP 2: Now you're ready to dry your hair. Set your blow dryer to a medium heat setting and, using a medium round brush, dry your hair in sections. Make sure to create tension at the roots with the brush to get rid of frizz, but when you get to the lengths, twirl the brush to create more volume and loose curls. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.
  • STEP 3: Using a two-inch barrel curling iron, take small sections of your hair and wind it away from your face. Hold it in place for seven to 10 seconds and then let the curls go. You'll want to leave some loose strands but will curl about 75 percent of your entire head.
  • STEP 4: As a finishing touch, mist hair with a light hold hairspray and give your hair a couple of cool shots from your hairdryer to set the look.

I love this - I can't wait until my hair is long enough to do styles like this...

This doesn't sound simple to me. A blowdry would take me 40 minutes, then to use the curling iron would take me another 10-15 mins. That's a lot of work. I guess it differs for different hair types. Who is this girl anyway, she looks so familiar to me.

I'd like this look if it was a bit more messy. Most of those curls look stiff or fake.

I don't like this look at all. It's too Shirley Temple for me.

She looks pretty, but I think that her hair looks a little too polished for my liking. Her curls are just a little too perfect.
