IRRESISTIBLE ME - HOW TO CREATE 3 TYPES OF CURLS

Euriental | fashion & luxury travel | Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Curler - 3 wavy/curly hairstyles

Having long hair is great. It's easy to experiment with. Wear it up a thousand ways, braid it in intricate styles, wear it curly, wavy, straight. It's also a hassle. Washing your hair becomes a whole "thing", blow drying takes a good half hour (at least), styling becomes a chore.

My hair is naturally straight. From what I hear from curly-haired friends, this is a blessing. Less frizz, less tangling (although believe me, straight hair definitely tangles too), easy to manage. On the other hand, straight hair has the tendency to get a bit limp; go a bit lifeless; look a little thin. Flyaways and baby hairs stand out. And so my go-to hairstyle  to fix these issues is to go curly. Somehow, curled hair always looks good tied up, whether it's hastily done in a low bun or neatly tied in a high ponytail. 

I've been using my straightener to curl my hair for the past two years, but you can't always achieve the look you want with a straightener. So, when Irresistible Me offered to send me their new Sapphire 8 in 1 Curler to test out, I was more than happy to oblige. Without further ado, here are just 3 of the types of curls you can achieve with the many wands the Sapphire Curler comes with.

Look 1. A tight curl. Neat, feminine and for the woman who likes the "perfectly preened" look. Use a reverse wand for this style (it has either an ascending or descending barrel).

Look 2. A looser curl. Glamorous, relaxed waves for a "red carpet" kind of look. The wider the barrel, the bigger the curls. I notice that on my hair, these curls don't hold as well, so I encourage using hairspray to hold them in place.

Look 3. A kinky, springy curl. This creates a style that looks more 'undone' than a perfect spiral. To achieve this, use the pearl wand. It's a funny looking one, but it produces the most natural looking curl. I always start a little lower down (as you can see) during styling, but if you want to look like you were born with it, start higher up on the head.

  4. Thank you for sharing your tips! I am interested in experimenting in a curling iron. I actually have very curly hair, but sometimes I love to straighten it and put a loose curl in it. It helps to see what tools work best for what. Xo, Ellese

  6. A fabulous tutorial! I adore all three types of curls (and mainly because my hair is dead straight haha) - though my favourite is most definitely the loose curls/waves, they look beautiful on you :)
