Lauren Conrad Loose Waves

Lauren Conrad has great hair. Fact.
So when she uploaded a video of how she gets her loose waves, I thought I would give it a try. 

I washed my hair and let it dry naturally through the day as I didn't fancy blasting myself with a hair dryer when it was so hot outside!

This is the curling wand I used, it's a 1 1/2 inch tong and I bought it from Salons Direct for £7.50

Half done!

All done!

Once I had taken out my clips and given it a brush through it looked great! However it took me about 45 minutes to do the whole lot and it only stayed bouncy for about half an hour, buy the time I had done my make up and walked out the door it was pretty straight again! There's many reasons this could hair spray wasn't strong enough, I had used no other product in my hair, I didn't have the same clips shown in the video, my curler wasnt hot enough (it was a cheapy one!) or simply that my hair is straight and likes to be that way!

Anyone have any tips on how I can my this work in naturally straight hair?! Or anyone else tried this tutorial and found better ways of creating the look?


  1. I have exactly the same problem unless I physically fry my hair harri! sad for straight hair :(

    1. Yeah, aren't we lucky with our naturally straight hair that doesn't do anything... Going to have to fry it! Read your hair tips, will have to test those!
