Hi, my name is Cassidy Blackwell, the founder and editor of, it’s a popular website geared towards empowering and educating people about their natural hair. So, a lot of us curly girls, are really focused on creating perfect, defined spiral curls. But sometimes you don’t want to do that, you want to have big, dramatic, editorial curls. It’s that style that’s really on trend these days. Dickey of Hair Rules of New York City, taught me great technique for you to do exactly that. The first step, is to wash and condition your hair. When your hair is thoroughly saturated with water and still looking wet, apply Hair Rules Curly Whip. This is an awesome styling product that really defines curls of all hair textures. Once you have that thoroughly applied throughout your hair, tip your head upside-down and add a little bit more water to really elongate your curls and set them. When your hair is fully dry, take a blow-dryer with a nozzle attachment, and take one section of hair. Apply heat directly to the root to unlock that curl and elongate it. You can work through the entire head of hair, pulling and stretching with your blow-dryer as you go. When you’re finished doing that, you can take little pieces of hair and kind of, separate any other curls that you may have missed. For an added lift, use a volumizing hairspray. Once you’re finished with that, you’ve got your full, beautiful editorial style. Finish with a hydrating finishing cream to add a little bit of hydration and moisture, and you’re ready to go. I’m a big fan of this sort of easy trick to give me a more editorial style. As you can see, it’s got a lot more movement and gesture and height.
