How To: Loose Curls with DESSANGE Paris…

Today I’m excited to team up with DESSANGE Paris – the iconic haircare brand fresh from Paris – to show you how to recreate these Parisian inspired messy-chic, loose waves.

Here’s how I got the look:

Step 1: I washed my hair with DESSANGE Paris Oleo Miracle Shampoo and Conditioner.

Step 2: I applied the Oleo MiracleReplenishing Oil throughout towel dried hair – this product is great for nourishing hair, without weighing it down. A little goes a long way so you only need a few drops (and it smells amazing too).

Step 3: I  blow dried my hair and set it with hairspray to add some texture and to help the curl hold.

Step 4: I wrapped about an inch of hair from the root to the ends in a spiral motion. Make sure your iron is always pointing down and hold hair for about 15 seconds. (I don’t use the clamp at all, I hold the clamp open with one hand and hold the end of my hair with the other).

Step 5: I finished it off with hairspray (go light on the hairspray so your curls don’t get crunchy). For a more relaxed look, comb through your curls with either a brush or your fingers.

Up until last year DESSANGE was only available in the U.S. by salon, but now you can find the new premium mass collection of DESSANGE Paris; California BlondeSolar Blonde NaturalSolon Color Restore and Oleo Miracle exclusively at Target! If you have any questions about the products used, or the curling technique let me know in the comment section below :)

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
