It entailed us following along Eugene's steps in the live video. We had the opportunity to ask questions along the way and it was a great interactive experience. With my hair freshly washed (and conveniently just trimmed!) I sat down with the Aussie goodies I'd just received and set all my tools up.
I used the Babyliss conical wand to curl, clipping each curl in place to leave it to cool. I gradually began running out of kirby grips, so the bottom layer of my hair was curled free hand and not pinned.
I finished the look with masses of hairspray and was so pleased at the finished look! It's the beachy waves that I think the majority of wavy haired fans are after! They required a little topping up the following day, but lasted well for the most part. Using some of the little tips that Eugene recommended made such a difference. The one I think made the most is spritzing the roots of the hair with a little bit of hairspray before you curl it. It gives a little bit of lift and helps the curl stay put.
Thanks to Eugene and the Aussie girls for arranging it all. I've since been curling every single day - no exaggeration! - since they last so well.
Any other angels amongst you that got involved?
