Big, bouncy, textured waves have made their comeback, slowly taking over for slicked back buns and super sleek straight strands. We shouldn’t be surprised, considering nostalgic beauty trends have slowly been making the rounds on social media of late (just look at the ‘90s minimalist makeup going viral right now). While messy buns and effortless tousled hair made for perfect lockdown styling, now that the world is out and about again, Farrah Fawcett and Cindy Crawford-esque curls are the It-girl hairstyle of the moment. From first glance, they might not seem like the easiest of styles to pull off, but with a few simple haircare staples you can achieve them for yourself.
Whether you’re an avid TikTok watcher or not, you’ve probably noticed the revival of hair rollers recently. Blame it on Matilda Djerf and her iconic blonde tresses, but the need to create major lift and volume for big bouncy curls has been tasked to the old school beauty method. Mermade Hair offers up a Velcro Roller Kit to get yourself in on the trend, with six medium rollers that can be used on wet or dry hair, which of course, come in their signature pink carry case.
While styling tools and treatments are certainly the way to get your desired curls, caring for your hair from the inside out is also a great first step to ensuring thick, healthy strands. Vida Glow’s newly-launched Hairology are a once-daily ingestible capsule to support hair growth and strength, for strong locks that’ll thrive when styled.
We all know there’s nothing that can ruin your curls more than pesky frizz that can’t (and won’t) be tamed. Stop that frizz in its tracks with Grown Alchemist’s Anti-Frizz Shampoo & Conditioner duo. The light, instantly absorbed formula will leave your hair clean, shiny and supple and get rid of any flyaways.
For those really looking to go big and bold, you can’t go past O&M’s Deserr Dry Texture Spray. With Native Australian Lilly Pilly acting as a natural collagen plumping the hair, the formula works hard to build volume and lift. Basically, get ready for serious va-va-voom texture.
All the curls, zero the crunch — that’s exactly what R+Co’s Twister Primer delivers. The lightweight primer, best for prepping and taming curls, acts just like your favourite skincare primers, adding moisture for definition and getting those curls ready to take hold.
As far as viral hair tools go, there’s no denying the cult moment the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler is having (and for good reason). The innovative product is built to curl, wave, smooth and dry hair without extreme heat, meaning no more heat damage. With so many different attachments that come alongside the Dyson Airwrap, you can really have fun with your curls.
