Get the Look: Carrie Bradshaw
As we all wait with bated breath to see Carrie’s wild wardrobe, the (possible) wedding, and all the other juicy revelations in the upcoming Sex and the City movie, there’s no better time to perfect her signature tousled waves.
To get this look:
Step 1: Prime, Prime, Prime
After cleansing and conditioning your hair, apply a dollop of volumizing mousse (like John Frieda Frizz Ease Take Charge) and run it through from root-to-tip.
Step 2: The Basic Blow-Out
Blow-dry your hair straight using a round brush. Don’t stress about your skill level, as long as you’re able to dry your hair evenly, you’re fine.
Step 3: Create the Curl
Wrap one-inch sections of your hair around the barrel of a curling iron (1.5 to 2” works best), like a corkscrew. Hold for a two count (one Manolo, two Manolo…), then release and allow your hair to cool. Finger through to create loose waves.
Step 4: Set Your Style
To keep your locks from going limp, use a shine-enhancing spray with a light hold (nothing too stiff) to finish, such as Ojon Tunu Elastik Flexible Finishing Hairspray.
