Whether you’re a big lingerie fan or not, you have to admit that those “angel curl” hairstyles are just gorgeous! I probably won’t prance through the office in my skivvies and high heels but I can totally see wearing that hair. This cascade of curls is youthful, sexy and surprisingly easy to achieve, if you have a little time. With some care, you could wear this hairstyle for a few days without much work. Angel curls look best on women with medium to long hair but if you have short hair and want hair like Gisele’s, you could opt for some hair extensions.
Get Angel Hair!
Before you style your hair, it needs to be clean and dry. For this style, skip the air drying. A good blow drying session can add needed volume right at the roots. I recommend flipping your head upside down and shaking your hair, starting at the roots as you dry.
Now find your part. I typically use a rat tail comb to create one. A straight part down the center will work but for a true “angel” hairstyle, create a slightly off center part. With the comb, part your hair at the back of your head to create two loose ponytails. Secure each ponytail loosely with fabric-covered ponytail holders. Pick which side you’ll work with first. Divide that section into an upper and lower half. Clip up the top part so you can work on the bottom sections without wrestling with the top layer of hair.
Here Comes the Styling
Brush out the tangles from the lower section using a paddle brush. Select a ½ section of hair and slide it over the heated barrel of a ½ inch wide curling iron. Don’t curl from the bottom of the hair-curl from the center and curl down. Keep the hair in place for 10 seconds and then release it. The curls should be oriented away from your face, flipped back, not curled under. Continue until all the hair in that section is curled. After the section is complete, lightly spray it with hairspray. Do not brush the curls. Style the remaining section of hair, then remove the other ponytail holder.
Continue adding ringlets and curls to your hair, spraying sections as you go. Here comes the fun part-the teasing! Pick up that rat tail comb and begin teasing your ringlets slightly at the root to create volume. You don’t have to do every curl, just a few to get volume and voluptuousness. Finish with a final veil of hairspray and allow it dry for before you touch it or change your style.
Wear this sexy hairstyle anytime you have a romantic date planned!
