How-To Video: Easy Breezy Curls Tutorial

Think you have hopelessly un-curlable hair? I did, too. Until my stylist showed me what I was doing wrong. I made this video to share a few tips and tricks so you can create your own beachy waves, sans frustration and fall-out.

Have ideas or suggestions for other tutorials and how-tos? Let me know in the comments!

I'm a small town lady from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, beauty counters and unfussy style. I spend my days running my flower shop, and my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear. (Or watching Netflix and drinking wine.)

  • I’ve followed your tutorial guidelines three times now. And I’m glad I didn’t give up, because the third try was the charm for me. The first to times I was using a way too big of curling iron, so I wasn’t getting the good relaxed curls, more like wierd waves. After using a 1.5″ curling iron, its so awesome. Hope that tip helps other readers! Thanks for the tutorial Keira!

  • Thank you so much for this video!!! I tried curling my hair today and it looked fab thanks to your advice!!

  • You’ve convinced me. I’m going to give the curling iron one more try. Your video is adorable! Thanks for the tip on Birchbox! I’m anxiously awaiting my first box in August!

  • Honestly, could you get any cuter! Your blog is such a treat! I feel like everytime I read it, I get a new surprise present. “what’s she gonna do next?” From the birchbox to the DIYs, I’m always smiling. Despite the fact that I blog a little, I rarely read blogs. Yours is one I try to visit often.

  • Just wanted to let you know I watched this video a few days away, and followed almost every direction. I don’t have a high heat curling iron, so I used my straightener. But I LOVED how it turned out! It’s been at least 12 hours, and there are STILL curls! I cannot believe it. I never knew dirtier hair held better, and I never knew how to hold the tool properly. Thank you so much for the tutorial! I’m wearing curls more often!

  • i loved this tutorial, thank you so much for taking the time to make the video and share it with us. i have always been curling my hair the wrong way too and had an inkling that i was doing it wrong, and this just confirmed that. i’m excited to try working the curling iron differently and hope i see some better results!

  • I tried your technique this morning and… my hair looks awesome! It’s naturally wavy anyway, but in a very firzzy and disorganized way. Now, using your method, I have these lovely light curls that give my hair body and definition (and disguise the fact that i couldn’t be bothered to wash it today). I’ve never had curls look this good… THANK YOU!

  • You’re adorable!! And a complete natural, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone be so sweet and precise and not self-conscious. Thanks a bunch for this, it’s been bookmarked! :)

  • I absolutely love this! I cannot thank you enough for posting such an adorable video doing a how-to for this.
    I have long hair that is only straight unless I do a 45 second hot iron on each curl — so annoying!
    This helps tons! (:

  • I have no patience for curling irons, unfortunately. I own 4 of them, yet I always end up going back to my straightener to curl my hair! It’s the same concept as what you’re using above and works just as well, so kind of a double-duty product; love it! So, if you’re stuck in a pinch and want this same look, try it out! :)
