Hi, I'm Danielle Valiente with Atmosphere Salon, and our topic is how to get curly hair with straws. I've got two ways to show you to wrap hair with straws to get curls and each are going to give you a different curl pattern. The first one now I've taken about five straws and grouped them together and secured them on each end with an elastic. The reason I did that is just to make it a bigger curl pattern rather than a tighter one. If you want tight curls, you can use just one straw but if you want it a little bit bigger then group them together as I have here. Next, I'm going to take the straw in vertically and twist the hair around the straw and what I love about this technique if you let the hair kind of coil as you are wrapping it around, I love this technique because it gives you those fun Taylor Swift curls so these are great for that and what's nice about this is that you are achieving the curls without the use of heat. So if you are concerned with the application of heat to your hair then this is a great way to get the curls. So it's coiled all the way down and I've secured the ends with an elastic and then also using the bent part of the straw on the top to keep that from unwinding and then you just let it sit and dry completely. When you take it out you remove the elastic and let it unwind instead of just pulling it out so that you don't create knots and what you'll end up with that is those beautiful coiled Taylor Swift curls. The other way is I've taken two straws and secured them with an elastic at the top and then just bend out the ends a little bit, not too much but to create a little V and place the hair in between the V, wrap the hair around one side and then wrap it around the other. So you are creating what we call a figure 8 curl. You can also do this with bobby pins as well if you want a tighter curl that is expanded a bit more. But when you use the straws because they are a little bit bigger, the curl you are going to end up with is more of a waved curl as opposed to a looped curl and depending on how tight you, the product is that you do it on, if you do it on a straw it's going to be a little bit looser. If you do it on a bobby pin it's going to be much tighter so it will expand more, but this just creates a nice figure 8 curl that gives you a nice wavy curl when it's removed. When you remove it, same thing, keep the ends together, slide out the elastic and let the hair just slip right out of the straw. And that is how to get curly hair with straws, two different ways.
