I don’t do sleek hair. My hair – much like my personality – is a cacophony of wildness that plays to the beat of its own drum.

I was a tad nervous when Rush and Redken asked if I wanted to create a salon versus home-styling tutorial for their lovely NYC Fashion Week Style Kit. Even more so when their pro gave my the best blow-dry of my life (it lasted for five days of international travel!).

You can watch the beauty (and anxiety!) unfold in our respective videos – enjoy!

no heat curls

If I can manage it, I avoid heat damage to my hair at all costs. Being long, frizz-prone and colour-treated, my mane simply doesn’t have the right stuff to handle constant blow drying, curling or straightening.

While I am thankful to appreciate the texture of my natural hair (curly, loose ringlets) and don’t feel like I have to style it every day, I am always looking for healthy ways to change it up. This method is my current favourite, as all it requires is a few socks (clean, please!): No Heat Sock Curls!

See the tutorial in the video below!

no heat curls
I have seen a lot of “no heat curls” tutorials around the internet, but have yet to find one which delivers the same super-bouncy curls we can achieve by using heated hair tools.

Don’t despair, ladies! I avoid using heat at all costs and have devised an almost heatless tutorial that will have you feeling like a Victoria’s Secret model.
