How to Make Straight Hair Curl + Eva Salon & Bluff City Lights & Giveaway

The Bluff City Lights ladies have gotten a total hair makeover from Eva Salon for New Years! New year, new you, NEW HAIR! Now you get the chance to get new hair too when you sign up to win a $200 Eva Salon Gift Card! Before that though, check out how I learned to keep curls in straight hair and see everyone’s hair makeover!

If you plan to wear your naturally straight hair curly most of the time, go ahead and choose a mid-length or longer layered cut! The layers will add texture to create a wave and a shorter cut takes out some of the weight.




This is my hair just plain air dried and slept on. I had washed it the night before coming to see April and came straight to her the next morning for my hair makeover!




  1. Use a conditioner when washing your hair. Healthy, moisturized hair will hold curls better than dried out hair.
  2. Then apply a root lifting spray and mousse after towel drying your hair. I am obsessed with Davines Volu Spray and the *AWARD WINNING* This Is A Curl Moisturizing Mousse . You can get both of these products at Eva Salon! If you are not from Memphis, click the images below to order yours!

3. With a medium sized round brush, blow dry your hair and round brush it out.Dry in 2 inch sections and focus on lifting the roots by applying the air to the hair closest to your head as  you round brush. Make sure to overdirect as well. This means to lift the sections from one side of the head and dry them to the other side to add more volume.

4. With a medium barreled curling iron, wind your hair around the barrel to add bouncy curls and finish the look with my favorite hairspray, Davines This Is A Strong Hairspray.
