Big loose curls: how to

In this post I will show you how to get these totally gorgeous big loose curls:
*Note: Works on medium to long hair

This is what you'll need:

 4 clean socks
♥ Straightening iron
♥ Comb
♥ Hairspray
♥ Shine spray (optional)

Step 1: 
If your hair is naturally straight, you can do this when your hair is still moist after a shower, etc. I, on the other hand, have curly hair, so I need to straighten my hair before I can curl it.

What you need to do is to divide your hair into 4 sections. and curl every one of them onto a (clean, of course) sock! When your hair is curled around the sock, you simply tie a knot with the two ends. Here is a wonderful picture I drew in paint so you can see exactly what it should look like:

Step 2:
If you're one of those who have to straighten your hair before doing this, now it's time to spray your hair with water to moist it. It should not be completely wet - that would take too long to dry! So now you're walking around with moist socks in your hair - lovely! ♥ 

Step 3:
After your hair is completely dry (which would take 1~2 hours), it's time to gently remove the socks! Your hair would look something like in the picture below. Run your fingers through your hair and the biiiig curls created. Tease it a bit at the hair roots using your comb, and spray to get some volume!

Step 4:
Curl your bangs using your straightening iton, because it does look a bit weird having straight bangs and big loose curls like this. Once you're happy with the results, spray a bit with a finishing shine spray (optional), and you're good to go!
