Paper Towel Curls | How-To

I have long, super straight hair. It also doesn't have a lot of volume on its own, so I have to help it out a little. If I try to curl my hair with a curling iron, it's usually flat by the end of the day (unless I use a can of hairspray). So for my hair to stay curly all day day, I usually have to sleep in curlers. I hate those foam curlers, because if I try to sleep in them, my head kills me. So this is a great solution for both problems!

I let my hair air dry until it is about 90% dry and then spray it with sea salt. It helps create volume and keep a natural hold throughout the next day. Then I cut my paper towel into strips about an inch and a half wide.

Take your paper towel strips, roll your hair up and gently tie it into a knot. Then sleep, wake up and look beautiful!! If you have hair like mine, this works great. Try it out, it's so easy!

  1. This is just too cute! Your curls are so defined and lovely! But I guess this won't work on my shorter hair. I will definitely try it though! :) thank you for sharing!

  2. Oh this reminds me so much of when I was a little girl. My mom used to do this with us! :)

  3. This is such a fun idea.

    I just discovered your blog, and I must say, I'm really excited. I especially love the peach color obsession post a few posts back. So pretty!

  4. I love the hair....great idea :)

  5. Awesome tutorial!! I can't curl my hair with tongs because it's very, very bleached!! But I really want curls, so this should help do it!

  6. Loved this idea, so I shared it on my blog, too. Hope you enjoy!


  7. Looks fantastic. Better than when I tried to do it.

  8. I wonder if this would work for naturally curly, frizzy and very thick hair.... Going to find out tonight!!
