Go through this easy 10-step hair curling tutorial to get Kate Middleton look!
Step 1 – Apply Sebastian Potion 9: After washing and drying your hair, groom your hair by applying appropriate amount of Sebastian Potion 9 all over your hair. Start applying from the mid-lengths gradually moving towards the tips.
Step 2 – Blow dry the hair: Using your paddle brush, now blow dry your flipping your head upside down. Make sure the dryer is away from the face.
Step 3 – Create the side part: Once you’ve blow dried your hair then make different sections. You can also go for a side part, as it offers a flattering option for almost all face profiles, whereas a middle part although trendy but suits only narrow and symmetrical faces.
Step 4 -Divide the hair into two sections: Now separate your strands and divide them keeping closer to the crown. Now secure the section of the hair that’s closer to the crown with bobby pins. This will ensure you conveniently curl your locks without having to remove your front locks that keeping falling off.
Step 5 – Start curling: If you’ve thick hair then a curling iron with two-inch barrel will work or else go for curling iron with one-inch barrel.
Step 6 – Curl taking diagonal sections: Start from the temple for curling and move towards the nape of the neck. Now take diagonal sections and use the curling iron keeping it away from the face.
Step 7 – Let hair cool: While you are busy curling hair, make sure you let each section cool without touching the curls. Even though they look tempting just don’t touch them as it will spoil the setting. Once you unpin the hair, repeat this step once again.
FYI: If you’ve soft, natural curls then wrap the hair around the curling iron without using the clamp.
Step 8: Apply Sebastian Liquid Gloss: Once you are done with curling all the sections, leave them to cool. Then, apply one to two drops of Sebastian Liquid Gloss and more at the tips to add shine, whilst creating smooth flyaways.
Step 9: Loosen your curls gently: Now gently loosen your curls by lightly pulling them off. Now bring all the curls and place over the shoulder.
Step 10: Use hairspray: Complete your hair curling DIY by applying L’Oréal Elnett Satin to keep the setting for longer time period.
And that is it!!! And you’re all set to get the Duchess of Cambridge’s look!
