The Sexy Hair Scale: Which One Are You?
Sexy is definitely a vibe. But within that vibe are various sub-genres, especially when we’re talking hair.
Sexy hair is among the most requested looks, right behind the vague and overused “cool”. But one size does not fit all personality and hair types. Here’s how to get from where you are to your fantasy locks .
If you immediately associate ringlets with Shirley Temple then you’ve been doing them wrong. Prep the hair by drying a spray gel through the hair, midway through the ends for hold. Wrap 2-inch sections of hair vertically around a 3/4” curling iron. Grab a paddle brush to comb through from scalp to ends vigorously. Rapunzel of Sweden’s Hollywood Volume one-piece clip-in extension was added to Dana’s romantic look for thickness, not length.
For sexy hair that leans on the side of cool, a wave curl is perfect. This sexy vibe is meant to look lived in and effortless. Spray in a sea salt spray for texture and wrap two-inch panels of hair around a 1.25” curling iron. Alternate the direction of the curls for a less uniform wave. Brush the waves out with a paddle brush or wide tooth comb, spray in dry shampoo for separation then brush out again. Length is an essential part of this look. Try Rapunzel of Sweden’s 20” Original 7 piece set for Rachel’s vibe.
Sexy hair may come in various forms but there are usually a few key components to a sexy look. The Classic encompasses them all: volume, length, and the perfect mix of definition and ease. Spray two-inch sections with a flexible hold hairspray before setting with a 1” curling iron. Wrap the hair around the iron horizontally and pin the curl like a roller onto the scalp for volume. Add in clip in extensions from ear to ear and down to the nape of the neck for length. Use a wide tooth comb to brush out the curls.
Rocking what your mama gave you is always sexy. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun, either. Give a major volume moment by brushing out (yes, you read that right) your curls. Use a large wide tooth comb starting at the ends of the hair to gently separate curls. Add in curly wefts from Rapunzel of Sweden if you want to go even bolder. This will create a mane that demands attention. And nothing is sexier than a woman unafraid to take up space.
