Learn How to Get Mariah Carey’s Fabulous Hair with this Easy Hair How To!
We all know that Mariah Carey can sing fabulous but she is always looking ultra fabulous! Now, she is getting rave reviews on her acting skills too! You go Mariah! While we may not be able to learn her amazing talents, we can sure as heck learn her hair styling techniques (or should I say her stylist’s techniques). Here is how to be Mariah fabulous in a flash.
Begin blow drying the hair straight in small sections using a boar's bristle paddle brush, like the Diamond Wood Boar Bristle Square Cushion Brush. Direct the air flow downwards and blow dry the hair from root to end to help control frizz and support a very soft and straight look. Use an Ionic anti-static 1875 watt dryer for the best results and when hair is completely dry, run a wide flatiron, such as Hot Tools 2" Ceramic Titanium Flat Iron, through your lovely locks to achieve that frizz free, pin straight look. The smoother the hair is before curling, the better.
After the hair is completely straight, smooth, and frizz free, begin curling in small to medium size sections using a 2 inch barrel curling iron, like Hot Tools Professional Spring Curling Iron 2 inch. Using a larger barrel iron will give the curls a looser, more bouncy look like Mariah’s. Before each curl, spray each individual section of hair with a firm hold hair spray, like René Furterer Laque De Finition Finishing Spray. This will give the curls long lasting hold and shine. Start at the back of the head and work your way forward, directing your iron backwards so the curls are aimed away from the face. When you have finished curling, run your fingers lightly through each curl to shape and loosen and then give your entire head one last mist of the finishing spray.
