In this tutorial, we're going to be trying some ribbon curls on damp, wavy hair.

If you don’t like using a curling iron, this ribbon curl technique is a great heatless way to achieve soft waves in your hair.

Best of all, it doesn’t require any tools at all - we’ll just be using our fingers. Let’s jump on in!

Smoothing hair

1. Smooth out hair

Separate your hair into sections. Then take one section and smooth it out.

Rolling hair

2. Roll the hair

Roll the bottom of the hair around two of your fingers.

Then roll it all the way up to the top of your head.

Twisting hair

3. Twist and unravel

Twist your hair and unravel it down while you spin.

4. Repeat

Do this all over your head, and then let your hair dry.

Opening up ribbons

5. Open up the ribbons

I personally like to open up my ribbons because I don't like them to be too tight, and opening them up also gives me more volume.
