With smoky eyes and nude lips, her makeup was perfection. But it was Annie Ilonzeh's mane of natural curls that caught our attention.
Thanks to her celebrity hair stylist Neeko of Sally Hershberger Los Angeles (known for keeping Halle Berry's short sassy locks in red carpet form), Ilonzeh rocked a romantic updo that was simple, yet perfectly chic – a beautiful style for ladies with naturally curly hair!
Get Annie's naturally stunning curls in 5 steps:
Start with second day hair. Shampoo and condition the day before and set your curls, sticking to your normal curly hair regimen.
To help soften your natural curl, take a curling iron one size bigger than your natural coil and curl random pieces throughout your hair.
Take 2-3 inch sections of hair and start rolling these sections from your nape up to your crown, securing with pins as you go. Continue until all your hair is pinned up.
Make sure to leave some tendrils loose around the fringe and temple areas to soften the look.
Finish the look by adding a couple of Grecian style headbands. Neeko recommends Ricky’s Nonslip Headbands as they are easy to style and stay in place. The first band should be placed lowest on the forehead and the second right above the hairline.
