    Glamorous and romantic loose waves are always a coveted hairstyle and a very modern change from pin straight, flat-iron hair that is really reaching its style expiration mark.


    Hair Tip: Make sure hair is very wet before you begin styling…

    • Apply a curl activating gel and a leave-in conditioner. Paul is partial to his own Paul Labrecque’s Curly Style and Repair Style.
    • After product is applied, twist wet hair into ringlets.
    • Slowly dry hair with a diffuser and make sure you don’t break the curl. It’s very important you don’t move your hair while drying since too much touching during this phase could cause frizz.
    • Once hair is dry add a shine serum for extra gloss. Try Paul Labrecque’s Curly Finish, or any other lightweight Camelia Oil spray that won’t weigh hair down.

    Voila, gorgeous waves in a cinch!

    Hair tip for naturally curly hair: It’s a cinch to master soft curls with naturally curly hair, if you use the right products. An anti-frizz curl activator such as Paul’s branded one, Paul Labrecque Curly Style, helps to form gentle curls without making them crisp, fragile or frizzy.

    • Put a dollop of anti-frizz curl activator on damp hair.
    • Twist sections of hair around one of your fingers.
    • Let hair dry naturally or use a diffuser for added volume.

    • When the ironing is done, use an alcohol-free silicone product to work through hair with your hands to separate and free hair to make the style complete.
