Sometimes just a soft bend in the ends is all you need to style your hair. The larger the curling iron, the softer the bend--so I chose a 2 inch barrel curling iron for this look.
I mention this in the video, but along with my usual Aquage Uplifting Foam product, I added Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse to add fullness all over my hair (instead of just at the roots). I am so impressed with it. It's the best all over volumizer I have ever used. It isn't sticky, nor heavy. And it also helps your hair hold the shape for longer during the day. I can't say enough great things about it, and I highly recommend it if you are in the market for a volumizer. You can find it at Ulta or search the Oscar Blandi website for stores/salons near you.
This style will settle in and loosen up as you go about your day, so even if it looks "too" curly right after you finish, plan on it softening and loosening up. *here is the link to the soft swoop tutorial for styling your bangs like I did here.
I also did a short teasing lesson near minute 09:10.
