Popular opinion holds that taming one's curls is rocket science. Tom Hiddleston, however, has proven otherwise with his impeccable management of his curly hair. Read on to learn how to style your own curls properly!
Tom Hiddleston, with his natural blonde curls, has frequently joked that his hair does exactly as it pleases, similar to a golden retriever's! However, after experimenting with different hairstyles and lengths over the years, the actor has found ways to bring his untamable curls under control.
Taming hair that's curly and long
As opposed to straight hair, curly hair tends to be drier, which means that it requires products rich in moisture. Shampoos and conditioners are a definite necessity, and maybe a hair mask even (men, they're just as good for you too!) from the Curl Contour by L'Oréal Professionnel range of products are highly recommended for thorough nourishment, hydration and definition of your curls.
Tom's days of sporting hair that was not just curly but long had were almost always never noticeably frizzy. For day long curl control and frizz-free hair like Mr Hiddleston's, we recommend curl creams such as Bouncy and Tender Dual Stylers from L'Oréal Professionnel.
The short of it: Dealing with smaller curls
With a tendency to roll inwards and curl up towards each other, short curls need a slightly different treatment. If wavy curls like Tom's is the way you'd like to style your hair, we recommend that you ask your hairstylist for a haircut that lets your curls lie down flat and smooth along your head. You could also use hair gel or wax to give your curls a sleeker, smarter look.
