A Quick Guide to Beachy Curls






The wind-swept, big hair of Victoria’s Secret models are always a popular look, whether you want them for your wedding day or bridal shower. Tammy Toca, owner and stylist at La Riviera Salon & Spa, gave us the lowdown on creating the curls:

“Use a curling iron, following these directions: dry the hair until damp and pin it into sections. Start 3 to 4 inches down the hair shaft and take 1-inch sections at a time.  Fold the hair over the iron for 2 to 3 seconds.  Then move 2/3 inch down the hair and repeat folding in the opposite direction. Stop 2/3 inch from the bottom. For pin curls, take 1 inch of hair and wrap it around your index and middle finger into a tight pin. Take your fingers out and insert the iron, continue as before.”
