Laissez Hair: Three Minute No-Heat Curls

Seriously, this took three minutes to do to damp hair and then I went to bed. Imagine how it will change your life when you can go from plane to party (like I did) and don’t have to even so much as pack that curling iron? You’ll need a headband like THIS.

Update: The real beauty here is that you can kind of control your curl.  For kind of tousled curls, sleep in it like I did in the first picture.  The second shot is a different day – I walked around a conference like that for a full day and then yanked the headband for the party that night.  The result was a tighter, cleaner, more vintage-y pin curl.  For more of a loose finger wave, wear it for an hour or two.  I did the video below last night, pulled the headband before bed, and here’s what I’ve got this morning:

I never in a million years thought I would do a hair tutorial, but I was wrong.  Even if you don’t care about hair though, watch the video because I used a cool song that I’m obsessed with right now. Thanks to John for letting me do that.

{Update: …A song so cool, in fact that I was whistling it while making this video. Scott has since pointed out that I have a total duckface on.  Dammit.}

[I first saw this hair idea HERE. That video is revelatory, but also thirteen minutes long and…well, I have the attention span of a remote control. So these are the cliff notes. If you have long hair and can’t get this method to work for you, check out my beautiful sister-in-law’s SJP style no-heat curls HERE.]
