Forget the big bouncy curls, and try light and airy crimped hair for your weekend date. Long crimped hair can be whimsical and romantic, while a short structured bob gives you an edgy, but sexy look!

It may seem like a lot of work to do this at home, but be assured, it is just as easy as curling your hair with a curling iron, only this time you’ll use a crimping iron instead. 

However, you don’t have to do it yourself. Look to already crimped hair extensions, weaves or wigs. If you have a really good wig, ask your stylist to crimp it for you.

Wear it in a pony

Just like Bey, a loose low pony is easy to pull off. Use extra long crimped hair extensions and tie your hair into a pony. You can leave a few wisps of hair in the front or use edge control gel for a sleek look.

Wig it

Revamp your favourite wig with a crimper and get a whole new look.

Braid it

...or rather undo your braids, for a quick and easy new crimped style.
