THE KIT

LONG HAIR STYLERS

You already know you need a tong to achieve curls through long hair. Step up the look and get locks looking truly flawless with these ultimate styling essentials: 

Wella Deluxe Dream Waves & Curls Mousse

Wellaflex 2nd Day Volume Hairspray
 

STEP 1

BUMP UP BODY

Give long hair a bouncy body boost with Wella Deluxe Dream Waves & Curls Mousse, which encourages curves while smoothing frizz and lending lustrous shine. Smooth through just-washed, damp hair from root to tip, then blow dry with the nozzle pointing down the hair shaft.

STEP 2

TWIST AND TONG

Once hair is completely dry, begin tonging the face-framing layers. Hold your curling iron vertical, then wrap a section of hair around the barrel, starting a few inches down from the root. Ensure these front sections curl toward the face, curl the next section away from the face, and continue this alternating pattern so your dreamy waves appear natural-looking.

STEP 3

GENTLY RELEASE

When curling each section, hold for a few seconds before gently releasing. Never pull the tong back through the curl, as this can loosen the flawless curves you’ve just created.

SPRAY AND SET

After curling, give long hair a generous spritz of hairspray. We love Wellaflex 2nd Day Volume Hairspray, which teams flexible, extra strong hold with serious plumping power. 

Expert tip for curls. Spray a bit of hairspray before curling to give your hair a rougher texture. Michael Douglas Wella expert. Wella logo on bottom.
