DIY Beauty: Blow Dryer Curls

Hey out there!
I just tried a new hair technique that I saw on Pinterest, and IT WORKED! Whaaaat?!
I can't tell you how many crazy things I've seen on Pinterest that did not work out. But this one was legit. Here's the photo I pinned.
The picture comes from here. I can't tell if this is the original source or not (one of the major flaws of Pinterest), and there are no written instructions... just the picture.
So I followed the instructions (basically, with a little tweaking), and I LOVE the results. Here's what I did.
1. I blow dried my hair upside-down, focusing mainly on drying the roots.
2. When my hair was about 80% dry, I divided it into two sections on either side of my head.
3. I twisted the two sections in the direction away from my face.
4. I pinned one of the twists into a bun while I worked on drying the other twist.
 5. I blow dried each twist for about 3-5 minutes, then loosened them with my fingers.
6. I finished up with some anti-frizz junk (I use Biosilk) and some hairspray (medium hold).
 And so today I am rockin' these easy, natural-looking curls!

 I'm thinking of making 'DIY Beauty' a regular segment here on the blog... what do you think?

I'm linking up here,  here, here, and here


  1. I LOVE easy! I wonder if it would work on my shorter/almost medium length hair? I'll have to try. Keeping my fingers crossed, I always love eliminating a step from my routine.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. I've only tried it on my hair, which is long and naturally frizzy/wild, so I don't know how it works on different hair types. But if you try it, let me know how it works out! Best of luck :)
