Do you want effortless volume?
How bout a big thick braid?
Do we have a solution for you!! CRIMPING!
As stylists we use hot tools to alter the hairs appearance and texture - flat iron for smoothing, curling iron for curls and a wand for waves. We now have a revitalized option, the crimper! Crimping gives us the ability to create endless volume. Using a crimper, we can take finer hair types and turn it in to a voluminous style.
Unlike backcombing, crimping will not deflate over time. Focusing your crimper at the roots allows you to create effortless volume. Fluff it up with your fingers when finished. HOT TIP!! When using this technique in place of backcombing, do two rows of crimps. Be sure to leave out enough hair to lay over top of your crimped sections. Around your hairline, leave an inch out uncrimped. We recommend to dance it up till your hearts content knowing your style will last!
Crimping your whole head is becoming a hot trend for 2014. At the salon, we have been playing with braids and natural volume. The look of big thick braids on up do styles can be difficult to achieve on all hair types, but with crimping we have found it much easier to make a statement braid.
At Michauds, we carry the BEX Deep Crimper. This extra deep crimp is designed for ultimate volume and texture. This is not your average mini crimper. With a 1 inch plate, this tool allows the user to crimp easily at the root. Ask your stylist about this unique "new" styling tool.
