Curling irons and other hot tools might be staples in your hair care arsenal, but they don't create masterpieces without leaving behind some damage. If you're thinking about going on a heat hiatus, there are plenty of ways to keep your strands stylish. That said, even though we love rocking fishtail braids, topknots, and intricate ponytails, we inevitably end up longing for curls.
Thanks to this tutorial, anyone taking a break from their styling wand can achieve gorgeous, cascading spirals — without any heat. All you need is lightweight texture paste, a rattail comb, and bobby pins. Using the rattail comb, separate your hair into small sections and run some product through each piece with your fingers. Then, twirl your strands to create a tight twist, wrap it into a bun, and pin it. Repeat until all of your hair is pinned up. Your final results should look like classic bantu knots.
In just a few hours (or overnight), straight, wavy, or even naturally curly hair will be transformed into glossy, defined spirals. The best part is that once you've mastered this technique, you can shape your strands into any style, such as beachy waves or a retro Hollywood curl. Keep on watching to get inspired.
