Curling your hair with tin foil might sound like a weird idea, but you’ll be surprised how effective it is once you tried it yourself. If you have thin, fine hair like mine, the tin foil curls trick is a total life changer. Think added volume in a matter of minutes.
It takes much less time to finish your entire head than with a regular curling wand. This method is less traumatic for those who just start experimenting with hair styling tools. I mean, who didn’t burn their hands with a curling iron?
In this tutorial, I’ll be using my new favorite flat iron, T3 SinglePass Luxe. It’s a newly launched professional flat iron that never failed me. Also, isn’t it photogenic?
As you have already guessed from the description, for this hairstyle hack, you’ll also need some tin foil. The same one you use for cooking will do. I recommend cutting your foil in pieces ahead of time, so you don’t need to cut it each time you are rolling your hair into a loop.
Finally, make sure to have a comb and hairspray on hand while working on this look.
Follow the below-described steps to repeat this look.
Step 2: Create a Loop
Grab a small section of your hair and wrap it around your finger in a loop. Make sure that the end of each section stays in place, so your hair looks wavy from top to bottom.
It doesn’t matter which direction your loops are facing. You’ll still get great results using this method.
Step 3: Tin Foil Curls
Grab a piece of tinfoil and wrap each loop of hair in it. Don’t use too much or too little foil for those purposes.
Your hair should be fully covered. But you don’t need many layers of foil on top of your loop.
Step 4: Warm-up with Flat Iron
Using a flat iron, scrunch the foil 3-4 times. Be careful: the foil will be very hot for the next few seconds. So either uses heat-protective gloves or arrange your foil pieces in a way that those do not touch your face.
I recommend heating your foils one by one. That way, you’ll allow each piece to stay warm. Read: your curls will last longer.
Step 5: Cool Down
Take out the foils one by one. Spritz with some hair spray, and you are all set!
