The beautiful days are here, summer is coming, the terraces and restaurants have reopened … What good news! We are definitely going to want to make ourselves pretty. For curls that last for hours and hours, here are the infallible tips from Emilie Rondeau, hairstylist and GHD expert.
AVOID RICH CARE
Taking care of your hair is always very important, but to get beautiful curls that hold, the hair must be light, free of any residue. If you opt for a mask before styling, rinse thoroughly. The best: pass your turn on the treatment this time.
HAVE WELL DRY HAIR
Whether you opt for natural drying or with a hairdryer, it is important to have dry hair when creating curls for better hold.

DO NOT LAUNCH BEFORE CURLING
It is sometimes tempting, but the hair should not be overheated. Possibly relax very lightly with a round brush and a hair dryer and let cool well before creating the curl.
APPLY THE HOLDING SPRAY
Vaporiser the maintenance spray which protects against heat and offers definition and hold to the curl before styling. The hold will always be better than wanting to set after styling.
DO NOT OVER-STRESS ON THE DRILLS
One pass is enough to create a loop, styler like the looper. If a loop is not successful, it is allowed to cool before resuming it.
ALLOW THE LOOPS TO COOL
The movement is created by heat but is fixed by cooling. For long-lasting curls, reshape them with your fingers and let them cool completely.Professional tip: wrap each curl around your fingers and secure it at the root with pliers to let it cool as tightly as possible.
IF NEEDED, ADD A LACQUER VEIL
It is possible to add a touch of hairspray on the curls before airing them with your fingers for even more hold, but the result will be more natural with the hold spray only.
