We know it’s 2016, but sometimes a flashback to the 80’s is something to embrace. Remember the colorful hair, bold styles and dance moves? Take a brief trip back with us to remember one of the most popular hairstyles of the day: the crimp.
Tips to Get the Perfect Crimp
Back in the day, crimped hair was everywhere. Today, it’s making a comeback. To achieve this Greek goddess look on your own at home, try the following tips:
Prep your hair by applying a mist of heat protectant and styling oil to the ends. Best to let this dry before proceeding.
Weave 2-inch braids all around your head, using all your hair.
Press a flat iron over each braid, moving it very slowly from the roots to the ends as if you were straightening loose hair. It’s a good idea to start at the back of your head and work your way forward.
Let each braid cool completely, then gently undo the braids and detangle with a wide toothed comb.
If you experience poofy or frizzy areas, apply a styling cream to fix the area.
