How To Steal Claudia Jordan's Long Lush Curly Hairstyle
To style your tresses with sassy and sensual cascading curls and waves like Claudia, complete the following steps listed below:
Step 1: Shampoo and condition your hair with your normal products designed for your current hair type, texture and condition.
If your hair is naturally curly or chemically processed or highlighted like Claudia use either a moisture enhanced or color enriched formula. If your hair is dry from chemical processing, consider diluting the shampoo formula to protect your strands.
If you have baby fine or thin hair and wish to build in the same lush movement and volume that Claudia has, use a volume enhancing shampoo.
Skip any rinse-out conditioning products that might make hair too soft and flat. If you must use a rinse-out conditioner, make sure that you limit how much you use and that you concentrate on the middle to the ends. Rinse well with a cool water spray which helps build natural volume and increases shine.
Step 2: Towel blot strands. Do not rub wet hair which is more fragile and can break. Detangle strands from the ends to the roots.
Step 3: Apply your favorite mousse or texture defining cream and/or defrizzing balm. Distribute from the top of the ears to the ends. Distribute well. If you prefer, create a mix that combines the mousse or cream with the defrisant and/or leave-in. This is known as cocktailing in the hair trade.
To protect against heat and add body, distribute a leave-in conditioner, mousse or gel from the top of the ears to the ends. Distribute well.
Step 4: Separate towel blotted strands into 2" sections. Working from side to side, allow strands to nestle into the basin of a long finger diffuser allowing air flow to move through the strands evenly.
Step 5: Once hair is completely dry, separate into 3" sections. Spray each individual section with a good setting spray or hairspray. Roll individual sections with large hot rollers or if you prefer, use self adhesive rollers or large sponge rollers. To achieve tighter curls, you may wish to spritz hair before rolling with self adhesive or sponge rollers with a fine water mist.
Step 6: All hot rollers to cool before unrolling. If you decide to use self adhesive or foam rollers, sit under a bonnet or hood style dryer to make sure misted hair is completely dry.
Step 7: When hair is completely dry, remove each curler one section at a time. Use fingers to lightly pick each section and gently pull to loosen curls. Do not use a brush or comb which may flatten the newly formed twisted sections.
Step 8: Use a medium barrel curling iron to touch up random sections or to form more uniform curls.
Step 9: To create Claudia's look from her 35th birthday party (top of article), use a brush or fingers to smooth back the hair on either side of the face. Use fingers to lift up equal sections of hair from the sides and also from the front of the head. Pull all three sections of hair (front, both sides) back toward the top of the crown. Smooth the three sections and lightly push the section to add a full "bump".
Secure with pins the same color of hair. Arrange the rest of the hair in back to cascade down from the crown section in loose curls.
Optional looks include creating a side part like her style for The Love Of Music Party and directing a large section of hair up and over to one side and tucking the other side behind the ear. Or create a center part and directing all the hair down around the shoulders.
Play with your curls to create your own custom Claudia Jordan hairstyle.
Step 10: After you have created your desired hairstyle spray the finished look with a good holding hairspray.
Step 11: Apply a tiny drop of shine serum, drops or spray into the palms of your hands. Lightly brush the palms over the top of your style and you are ready to rock.
(Shine products to try: Phyto - PhytoLisse (Formerly Phytodefrisant RelaxSerum).
For looser curls, use either larger sections of hair or larger rollers. For tighter curls, use smaller rollers and/or smaller sections of hair.
