5 steps to get Nicole Kidman's curls from The Undoing
Brush all your hair out to make sure there are no knots and part it down the middle.
Begin sectioning your hair a few inches above the nape of your neck and start clipping in your hair extensions as you normally would.
Take 1 ½ to 2” sections of your hair and begin tightly wrapping it around your curling wand, away from your face. Making sure to hold the barrel horizontally and leaving minimal gaps between each wrap-around. Continue curling all around till you’ve achieved voluminous curls.
We recommend using a 1 inch curling wand to achieve this look.
Use a clean, dry hair brush to comb through, and give your curls a more effortlessly natural look.
Finish up with a hair oil to tame any frizzy ends and flyaways. According to the star herself, Nicole uses PHILIP B Rejuvenating Oil overnight to nourish her natural hair.
And that’s it! If you have type 3 or 4 hair, embrace those natural curls and sport them with pride!
