This re­laxed look is per­fect for any oc­ca­sion. It looks best when the hair is pol­ished and groomed beau­ti­fully, then tou­sled. To repli­cate this ef­fort­less style at home, en­list the help of your Rem­ing­ton Styles Un­lim­ited. Its unique in­ter­change­able de­sign lets this tool work as a dual straight­ener and curl­ing tong all in one. Step 1 On dry hair, start by tak­ing large ver­ti­cal sec­tions Hold­ing the tong ver­ti­cally, open the barrel and start by smooth­ing the roots to mid-lengths through the straight­en­ing plates, so they are straight and glossy Lock the plates to­gether and, tak­ing one inch sec­tions of hair, wind the bot­tom half of each sec­tion around the out­side of the curved barrel (still hold­ing the iron ver­ti­cally). Make sure to curl the hair away from the face on both sides. The titanium plates will leave your hair look­ing and feel­ing pol­ished and healthy Hold for 5 sec­onds and let each sec­tion drop so the curl stretches out as it cools Run your hands through the waves to loosen them Fin­ish with a light tex­ture spray and sep­a­rate the curls to give a re­laxed, tou­sled fin­ish Sarah’s top tip: For a more beachy look, use a lit­tle styling pow­der and dust through to hold once fin­ished – or you can spray a lit­tle dry sham­poo through be­fore you brush out, to add tex­ture.

Get the look… Blake Lively’s bomb­shell curls

Bring on that wow fac­tor with this Blake Lively-in­spired glam Hol­ly­wood wave. For this look, you’ll need the in­no­va­tive Rem­ing­ton Per­fect Curls or Per­fect Big Curls – with ei­ther a 19mm or 32mm barrel. Both curlers have an in­ven­tive heat­proof cas­ing, en­sur­ing that ev­ery curl is flaw­lessly formed and there’s no chance of the dreaded styler-burn. Step 1 On com­pletely dry hair, start by cre­at­ing a low side part – around in line with the end of your eye­brow Be­gin with hair be­low the part and take sec­tions about 1-2 inches wide (less if hair is thick, more if fine), par­al­lel to the part line Se­cure the end of the sec­tion into the spring ac­tion clip and wind right up to the roots, hold­ing for 10-15 sec­onds be­fore re­leas­ing. Clip each sec­tion up into the curl as you fin­ish, al­low­ing it to cool for a few min­utes Work around in sec­tions over the en­tire head, mak­ing sure to curl in the same di­rec­tion each time. When work­ing on the sec­tions across the top of the head, don’t curl all the way to the roots Once fin­ished, loosen with fin­ger and us­ing a nat­u­ral bristly brush, gen­tly brush through, pulling hair for­ward to cas­cade over your shoul­der Fix any stray hairs around your face and fin­ish with a spray of hairspray Sarah’s top tip: Make sure you wind Per­fect Curls in the same di­rec­tion each time to en­sure your curls form a uni­fied shape This style is all about bounce, shine and healthy look­ing hair. The ver­sa­tile Rem­ing­ton Styles Un­lim­ited is the per­fect tool for the job, with titanium plates that im­part hair with an added boost of shine and smooth­ness, while its unique curved plates de­liver in­creased body and bounce. Step 1 Blow dry 100% and be­gin by pil­ing hair on top of your head, so you can work on the un­derneath sec­tions first Clip open the barrel of the Styles Un­lim­ited and in sec­tions, slowly smooth hair through the plates. While styling, curve each sec­tion in a wide arc (as you would with a round brush). This will give a high shine and leave it with an open, bouncy curve Con­tinue to take sec­tions around the head, work­ing up to the top layer of hair Tidy up the ends by lock­ing the tong to­gether and slightly press­ing the ends against the barrel to flick them un­der Brush out gen­tly with a nat­u­ral bris­tle brush and add a lit­tle shine spray to fin­ish Sarah’s top tip: Add ex­tra vol­ume to your style by us­ing the thin end of the plates and straight­en­ing di­rectly out at your roots for an in­stant height lift.
