How to Create Curls With a Diffuser

A Two-Step Trick For Enhancing Curls of All Kinds

One of the interns here at Sugar has the cutest, most enviable curly/wavy pixie, while I, on the other hand, have the subtlest of waves in my pixie-esque cut. But with just the right product and styling technique, I have been able to coerce my normally wave-resistant strands to form soft curls thanks to tips from my stylist.

It's easy to do on any length hair, as long as you have slightly wavy strands, but also works wonderfully for those with super curly strands, too. Start off by applying a firm hold curl-enhancing gel to hair that's still slightly wet. I like Wella Hypercurl ($22), as it gives just the right amount of texture, but without the crunchy results. Then, break out the diffuser — a necessary styling tool that will soften your hairstyle, all while preventing frizz.

For a bit more customization, you can wrap individual strands around your finger to help give the curl more definition. But if you have barely-there waves like me, try scrunching and squishing hair into the diffuser.

I use this same technique to turn my naturally beach-wavy hair into more defined curls :D I use Redken Crystal Curls Defining Shine Gel. Easy to do and works like a charm.
