It’s nearly the weekend … which means it’s time to get glammed up for a night out on the town! We love painting our nails, applying fake tan and getting our hair prepped as well as trying to decide to wear and how we are going to accessorise it!

Our glossy side curls are super easy to create and will look great with any outfit you decide to wear.

1. Curl the hair using curling tongs or straighteners, whichever you prefer.

2. Once the hair is curled, take the Denman D82M Boar Bristle Brush and gently brush the curls to give you a softer and glossy finish.

3. Finish with hairspray for extra hold all night long!

The Denman Guide To Afro Hair

Each strand of afro-textured hair grows in tiny spring-like, spiral shapes. The overall effect is that it appears (and feels) denser than straight hair. It should also be said that afro-textured hair is difficult to categorise because of the many different variations it has from person to person. Those variations include pattern, size, density, strand diameter and feel.

Due to the unique shape of afro-textured hair, it is also very prone to breakage when combed or brushed. Therefore, it is essential to choose the correct hairbrush  for this hair type. Denman have a wide range of brushes designed especially for afro hair.

Junior GreenThe Free-Flow has many advantages when working with Afro hair; it’s great at the backwash and for de-tangling thick natural Afro hair or extension weaves. I always start off with the Free-Flow when rough drying (to remove excess water). The paddle brush on the other hand is amazing for dressing out sets, finishing and when wanting to create big hair or soft sexy waves. Junior Green – Junior Green Salon Knightsbridge, London.

2. Take a curling wand and wrap a small section of hair around the barrel and leave for a few seconds. Gently slide the hair off the wand and gather it into your hand into its spiral shape. It now looks like a pin curl. Use a small clip to secure it to your head.

3. Continue this technique the whole way up the hair and around to the sides. Once the all the hair has been curled and clipped into place leave for about 15 minutes. (We usually do our make-up while we wait!)

4. Release all the pin curls from the clips. Gently brush out the curls using the Denman D82M Boar Bristle Brush (USA). Finish by applying some styling paste to your hands and gently running your fingers through the curls to define them.

Natural Wavy Hair

Do you have a natural wave in your hair but can never get it to sit the way you want it too? Well today we are going to tell you how to get a natural wave in the hair when blowdrying.

1. Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner and rinse thoroughly.

2. Detangle your wet hair using a Denman DC11 Detangling comb (USA). By using this comb on wet hair you will not damage or break the hair shaft. If you have a lot of knots in your hair, detangle from the bottom working your way up.

3. Apply some mousse to the hair and begin to blowdry the hair with the diffuser attachment. Gently gather the hair into the diffuser and hold for a few seconds. Sometimes the diffuser can get hot so we recommend a low heat setting,

4. Once the hair is about 80% dried, apply some sea salt texturising spray and finish blowdrying the hair with the diffuser.

5. Gently scrunch the hair and finish with hairspray.
