ribbon curls

It looks like gorgeous actress/singer star Zendaya has her holiday look all wrapped up! The Disney star stepped out in a voluminous coif crafted with lush “ribbon curls” that’s perfect for the party season circuit! Get a similar look with the help of a medium-sized barreled curling wand. Prep hair with heat protectant spray then divide into two-inch wide sections. Wrap lengths vertically down the shaft of the curling wand (if you have a clipless curling wand all the better!) then carefully release spirals. Pull the wand downward so as not to disturb the ringlets and allow them to “cool” before handling. Then, simply blend along the roots, leaving the rest of the curls defined in their “ribbon” shape. Mist with holding spray. /zendaya.
