Lauren Conrad CurlsQ: How do I get loose curls like Lauren Conrad's?
Click to enlargeA: The easiest way to get the kind of soft, swirling curls that Lauren Conrad usually wears is to use a series of large Velcro rollers on dry hair. Wrap the rollers in the hair, dividing the hair between at least a dozen rollers (more rollers can be used for more curl). Lightly mist the hair-wrapped rollers with hairspray and apply heat (use a hooded dryer, or a blow dryer with a diffuser attachment on a high-heat/low-airflow setting to heat the hair) then allow the hair to cool. This heating/cooling process will set the curl, so do NOT remove the rollers until the hair is completely cooled.

Lightly misting the fingers with hairspray and then running them through the hair after brushing will enable you to create some segregation and definition of the swirls as well as smoothing down any fly-away strands.
