How to get Taylor Swift inspired curls

·      First, flip your hair over and apply mousse from the roots to the ends to create volume. Flip hair back up and separate into sections for blow drying.

·      While blow drying, lift at the root to create volume and keep tension on the brush to ensure that the hair becomes smooth.

·      Once all the hair is dry and smooth, section the hair to prepare it to be curled.

·      Starting with the back section, separate hair into in 1-2 inch sections for curling. Spray section with hairspray, comb through and wrap hair around curling iron barrel starting close to the root. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, allow hair to stay on iron for 10-20 seconds.  Slide the curl off the end of the iron and re-coil the hair into the shape of the curl and clip.

o      Allowing the hair to cool in the shape of the curl ensures for smooth, longer-lasting curls.

o      To create extra texture and movement, use two different size curling iron barrels throughout the hair.  Scott recommends using a 1-inch and ¾-inch barrel curling irons.

·      Once all sections of hair are curled, clipped and cooled, begin taking out the first pins you put in.

·      Once all of the pins have been removed, gently flip hair over and work your fingers through your roots -- do not work fingers through to the ends. Working your roots will gently separate the curls and create a more natural look.

·      Gently flip hair back up and style front of hair, as desired. If you want to add more definition at the root, add a few more curls with the ¾-inch curling iron.
