As the fashion world indicates, one of the latest looks for long hair is loose curls. This style worn by Nicole Kidman is a perfect example of relaxed, long coils which result in handfuls of waves cascading across her shoulders. Attempts to twist or curl long hair cannot be successful unless the hair has been layered. All one length hair would have too much weight to support any efforts to influence the hair’s shape. To achieve this beautiful look of Ms. Kidman’s, apply a generous amount of styling mousse prior to drying. Gel or root lifter was applied here to encourage the ‘lift’ along the front hairline. Using a large barrel curling iron, curl in vertical ringlets mixing it up going both forward and backwards for maximum body and volume.
