She may be the newest member of the L'Oréal Paris family, but that doesn't mean that Russian supermodel and ambassador Irina Shayk has already got her red-carpet beauty routine down to perfection! The brunette beauty stepped out for the L'Oréal Paris reception at The Four Seasons Hotel in Moscow on October 28 glowing from head to toe in a gorgeous black gown; a stunning, natural beauty look and sporting a full curtain of luxurious, soft curls in her dark locks. We are already learning from this new #Loréalista and we think you could too, which is why we are bringing you the secrets behind these angelic curls!
Get the look
To get your curls looking picture perfect like Irina's, start by going back to those hair care basics! Wash your locks with a curl specific, hydrating shampoo and conditioner range, and don't skimp on the conditioner - nourishment is a curl's best friend!
Pat dry your hair with a jersey cloth then smooth a leave-in conditioning balm through your damp lengths. If you have some time to spare, wrap your hair up in the jersey cloth to allow your hair to absorb as much of the balm as possible.
Spritz your locks with a heat-protection spray then blowdry, holding your head upside-down for extra volume. Comb through your tresses and give them another mist of heat protection to prevent any damage: curly locks need to stay healthy!
Pin the top half of your hair out of the way then use a 1.5" curling iron to create medium-sized strands, holding the hair against the barrel for about 10 seconds at a time and only working from your ear-level down.
Repeat the above step throughout your hair, but don't worry about curling every strand. Coat your palms and fingers with a rich hair oil then gently tease your new curls to add a high-shine finish, before fixing your whole look in place with a spritz of hairspray.
