What You Will Need
Before we get started with how to create the look, let’s quickly list what you will need to achieve the look, this way if your are following along you can grab what you will need first.
- Pin Iron
- Wide Tooth Comb
Step By Step
Read on to learn How To Get Beyonce’s Hairstyle From Her Coachella 2018 Performance:
1/. Begin by washing and conditioning your hair. Next, on damp hair, apply a liberal amount of Iles Formula Finishing Serum to the hair from mid lengths to ends. The Finishing Serum will help to eliminate frizz, and control the texture while you are drying or diffusing your hair.
2/. Next, comb the Finishing Serum through your hair. If you are currently using our Iles Formula products then our Distribution Comb works very well for this. This will ensure that the product is being distributed evenly through out the hair. If you have very thick hair, it’s best to apply the product section by section, to be consistent and thorough..
3/. After the product has been distributed, you can dry your hair. If your hair is already curly, you can diffuse it. If you don’t have curly texture, not to worry, just dry it as you normally would. Be sure to dry your hair exactly how you will be parting it.
4/. Once the hair is completely dry, you will begin to curl. For the proper curl, you will need a pin iron. This is a very small rod iron, that is 3/8″ in diameter. Like the one pictured below. Most pin irons have the clamp on them. If you can find one in that size without the clamp then we suggest getting that size, if not, then you can take the clamp off by removing the screws on the sides. Save the parts, because they can be put back on when you are done.
The reason for removing the clamp, is that it is much easier to work with this small iron without having to keep the clamp opened the entire time.
5/. Now it’s time to curl. If you already have curly hair, you may not need to curl every single piece of hair. You can literally go in and detail or spot curl where it is needed most. If your curl pattern does not match the pattern that the iron creates, you may need to curl the entire head for the exact results. If you do not have curly hair texture, you will have to curl every piece of hair. This can be a time consuming process, but it’s definitely worth it because you will be able to wear this style for several days after.
6/. Now let’s discuss the proper way to create the actual curls. Start by taking a small section of hair at the bottom and securing the rest of the hair up and out of the way with a clip. You will then take small, no bigger than 1/4 inch subsections, to curl.
7/. Point the tip of the iron down, and begin wrapping the hair around the iron all the way to the ends. Turn the hair always toward the centre back which will open up the face and allow the correct flow to the hair. Allow it to sit on the iron until the hair feels warm to touch. When it’s ready, simply unwind the hair from the iron and let it set. Do not break up the curl until all of the hair is complete and cold.
8/. Repeat this process row by row, as you move all the way up to the top of your head. When each section is complete and all of the hair has been curled, its time to break up the curls.
9/. To break up the curls, start in the bottom again, and clip the rest of the hair up. Using your pointer finger, take each curl and place your pointer finger at the base of the curl closest to the scalp. Split the section in half by running your finger down the curl in the center. This will break up the curl, but still allow the curl pattern to remain in tact without causing the curls to get frizzy. Repeat this process on each curl.
10/. For a faster process, you can use the Iles Formula Distribution Comb to comb out the curls in larger sections. This will tend to open up the curls more and take away more of the curl pattern, so if you decide to go this route, less is definitely more. Perhaps just one pass through with the comb will be sufficient.
When you have completed this process, you are all finished. You now have achieved Beyonce’s hair from her Coachella 2018 performance. Best part, you get to enjoy it for days because this style will literally last 3-4 days. To preserve it, sleep with your hair piled into a loose top knot. If any of the hair has lost its curl, all you will need to do is a quick touch up on those pieces.
