The Deconstructed Curl was everywhere on the floor of Premiere Orlando and was often used as a foundation for other styles. On the TIGI stage, a stylist applied tiny-coiled extensions to her model and then used her fingers to pull each and every one of the coils apart. Avlon, the makers of Kera Care, had models with deconstructed curls swept into ponytails. Scruples models wore their curls big, loose, and dramatic.
In a community that is focused on the definition of curls and fighting frizz, the Deconstructed Curl offers reprieve and brings a new, edgier option for styling. Instead of seeking the perfect curl, aim to create shape, volume, and drama.
How to Get Deconstructed Curls at Home
- Wash and condition hair as usual
- Use a gel to style the curls while wet. The goal here is to define the curls
- Let the curls dry
- Once dry, separate the curls gently with fingers from tip to root
- Flip head upside down and shake for more volume and finish with a shine serum
Once you have the big loose hair, try some fun styling options such as slicking the front back and wearing a big pony tail or use bobby pins to create a bouffant in the front.
