6 Photos That Prove Crimped Hair Is Back And Better Than Ever
18 December 2017
If you’re looking for a little blast from the past, look no further than this latest hair trend: Crimped hair is back and it’s better than ever! Over the last few months, celebrities have been slaying this retro style on the red carpet and we couldn’t wait to get in on the fun. Bust out your crimpers, because we’re going to party like it’s 1987!
All-Over Crimped Hair
It just so happens that one of our favorite life mottos is also one of our favorite hair mottos: Go big or go home. No style personifies that more than crimped hair.
An all-over crimped look is not for the faint of heart, but those willing to take the plunge will be rewarded with a show-stopping look. Your friends won’t be able to stop talking about it.
Jumbo Crimped Hair
If you can’t decide between crimped hair and waves, the jumbo crimp is perfect for you. Jumbo crimped hair is best achieved with a flat iron as opposed to a traditional crimper, allowing you to create angled waves as big as your heart desires.
Start at the back of your head, working with 2-inch sections of clean, dry hair. Spray each one with a heat protectant before clamping the base of the section with your flat iron. Once clamped, flip the flat iron down and hold for 15 seconds. Then, move your flat iron down the section of hair, flip the flat iron up, and hold. Continue twisting the flat iron up and down until you reach the bottom of the section. Once you’ve crimped your whole head, set your look with a flexible hold hair spray.
Braided And Crimped Hair
Once you’ve crimped your locks, take your ‘do to the next level by styling it in a fun, voluminous braid. The compliments will start rolling in once people get a look at this eye-catching style.
Brushed Out Crimped Hair
We all know the day after you get your blowout is when your hair looks its best. It’s still clean, shiny, and bouncy from the day before, but it has a lived-in quality that just oozes sex appeal. Day two crimped hair is no different. The crimped waves are a little loose from the previous 24 hours and yet they manage to look even better than before. If you don’t have a full day to let your hair do its thing, gently brush through your crimped locks to get a loose, barely-there crimp you’ll love.
Accent Crimped Hair
If an all-over crimped look is not for you but you still want to take part in the trend, opt for a crimped accent. By just crimping a few sections of your hair, you’ll add a cool visual and textural element to your style without fully committing to a crimped ‘do. Who knows, maybe a few accents is all you’ll need to convince yourself you can totally pull off an all over crimped look.
Heat-Free Crimped Hair
If you don’t feel like digging out your old crimper from the attic but still want to slay the style, we’ve got the perfect hack for you. A simple braid out is the perfect way to get a crimped look without applying heat.
To get this look, begin with damp hair (or dampen your hair with a spray bottle) and begin braiding your hair in 1-inch sections. Once you’ve finished your entire head, allow your braids to dry or speed the process along with the help of a hair dryer. When your strands are completely dry, remove the braids. Your hair will be perfectly crimped—leaving you ready to slay a girls night out on the town.
