Crimping your hair grained popularity in the ‘80s among rock gods and goddesses alike. Originally made by braiding wet hair and unraveling when dry, this style got kicked up a notch when crimping irons were invented. From large to small waves, crimping gained popularity again in the 90s with pop stars. Recently, with the return of texture, crimping is in again! Used as a technique to build volume, if you can crimp, you can also curl, which is another favorite way we wear our hair. Follow along with the steps below to get Saria’s look, crimped or curled!
