I have three kids under the age of 5. Getting us all out the door on time can be tough. I had friends swear by this method and I didn’t believe them. Biggest. Mistake. Ever. This method provides you beautiful beach waves that last all day and only take a few minutes. It is a game changer. Trust me. As much as I love the mom bun, and I swear by it, it feels so good to have another stress free option for busy days! These 5-minute curls are so easy.
Start with dry hair. Nothing fancy. I throw some root lifter in because I have lots of fine hair. Once your hair is completely dry, you are ready to begin. Keep in mind I shot these pictures in real time, so no make up for the first round! Be nice!
Place a soft head band around your head. I have also used a knee high sock, tied in a knot, in a pinch. Works like a charm.
Wrap section of hair from under the headband around the top towards the back of your head. Continue until all of your hair is wrapped around your headband. The tighter you wrap your hair, the tighter the curls. I keep mine somewhat loose, but remember that your curls will loosen a little as they relax after you remove the headband. So, lean towards tighter until you get a feel for where you like it.
Now finish getting ready. Do your make-up, get dressed, get the kids ready, eat breakfast, anything you need to do! Make sure you leave it on at least 20-30 minutes.
Remove the headband. Your curls will be pretty bouncy and tight. I spray mine with hairspray and scrunch, then I finger comb through them.
That’s it! The perfect everyday curls. They work with longer lengths of hair too! Save yourself some stress and give it a shot. I will never look back!
