Curl or Crimp it

You can create texture and volume by adding waves or curls to your hair using a heated curling tong. The trick to keeping curls in place is to mist each section with hairspray before using the curling tong. Try Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray, it’s impeccably well-behaved and will ensure your curls have natural movement. (No rock solid hair like in the 80s, promise.) Our co-founder Paul Percival shares a great tip to create texture and volume. He says, “A really great tip is to crimp the root area of the hair as this will swell the hair and give it incredible, long-lasting volume. Spray sections of hair with Percy & Reed’s Surprisingly Strong Extra Hold Hairspray before you crimp, then brush through the hair to add amazing volume and longevity.”
