"This was the number-one request this past wedding season," says Erica Beukelman of 10.11.Makeup, in Menifee, CA. "For loose waves, I use a 1"-barrel curling iron; I wrap the sections of hair around the barrel, keeping the iron two inches from the scalp and avoiding curling the ends so the curls don't look overly 'done.' Then I pin the curls to let them set before breaking them up with my fingers, and use a humidity spray to protect against frizz."
