This year it’s all about ‘Barbie core’, big curly hair layers and embracing an a la naturale look. If you’re venturing into new curly and coily styles, you’ll discover the hair products you use are incredibly important. As curly guys and girls will know, the key is to hydrate. This begins with your choice of shampoo and conditioner to how you use your leave-in products. When it comes to short or long curly hair care, Kevin.Murphy is a well-known name – and the brand’s new Killer.Curls range is designed to bring some bounce to these three trending curly hairstyles.
#1 Barbie-inspired curly hair layers
This is perfect for that Barbie girl bounce that is right on trend! So if you’re worried your long locks are looking a little deflated, add some fresh colour and long curly hair layers. This will highlight your natural hair texture and the beautiful waves that define that iconic Barbie or glam look.
Then, to keep this curly hair style long lasting and luscious, you’ll need to protect your cuticle. The Killer.Curls Wash made with oat milk is your ticket to gently cleansing your hair and preserving a shiny, textural and moisture-enhanced curl pattern. A top tip for this is to apply the product to wet hair and focus on massaging the scalp, letting the product naturally flow down the lengths of your hair without drying your ends.
#2 The perfect fluffy curls
I know what you’re thinking: “What are fluffy curls and how does this work in Singapore’s humidity?” But trust me, this is not the same as frizzy hair. This look is about creating a tamed, soft and voluminous style akin to the 70’s airy diva look made famous by the likes of Farrah Fawcett. Or, more recently, the glossy and bouncy Barbie-inspired hairstyles dominating the fashion world. Nevertheless, this is a great style for those looking to add some volume or experimenting with long curly hair.
To create this curly hair style you’ll need to get a wide tooth comb and gently pull outwards at the root but not comb through your hair. This keeps your curls nice and controlled while lifting your hair. To make sure your styling remains tamed and doesn’t go into frizzy territory, hydration is key. The Kevin.Murphy Killer.Curls Rinse conditioner will deeply hydrate your hair, protect against colour fading and also refine your soft bouncy texture. Follow on with the Killer.Twirls and you’ll be bringing the 70’s back in no time!
#3 A curly hairstyle with bangs
While bangs often get a bad rap, they’ve made a huge comeback in Hollywood this year. Moreover, this face-sculpting do can really highlight your cheekbones and frame your face. So if you have a beautiful curly fringe or some longer front pieces amongst your curly hair layers, your best friend will be Kevin.Murphy’s Killer.Twirls. Additionally, if you’re a bit short on time, put your hair in an updo and use Killer.Twirls on your framing pieces.
This leave-in product should be applied to a small amount of towel-dried hair. Then scrunch up or twirl each lock to activate your natural curl. The best part about this styling product is that it’s great for protecting your hair from humidity. Once you’ve given your fringe the attention it deserves, add some product to the rest of your short to long curly hair and simply twirl on the go!
How to get gorgeous curls and coils everyday
For the best curly hair style, combine the Killer.Curls wash and rinse with Killer.Twirls. The oat milk in these products contains fatty acids to naturally protect, moisturise and nourish your hair. And the shea butter and avocado oil replenish natural oils for lustre and shine, the soybean locks in moisture and the castor seed oil smooths the texture of the hair.
The result of using a combination of these products is more shine, tamed flyaways and enhanced natural curls. All while protecting your hair colour and any breakage. This works for short or long curly hair and works a treat with curly hair layers. Moreover, styling will be a breeze, with the option to air dry by simply twisting each lock on the go!
You can find all of these products on Woorailoora along with more of the Kevin.Murphy range.
