This is how Tom Hiddleston controls his curls

Despite what you may think, curls can be tamed, as Tom Hiddleston has proven time and time again. Keep scrolling to learn how to style your own curls the right way!

Naturally blond with curly hair, Tom Hiddleston often jokes in interviews that he's like a golden retriever, and that his hair can have a mind of its own. However, through trial and error and many different short and long hairstyles over the years, the actor has found ways to tame his unruly curls!

How to control long curly hair

Curly hair is often drier than straight hair, so it's important to use products that will infuse lots of moisture into your mane. We recommend using shampoo, conditioner and even a hair mask (no, they're not just for girls!) from the line Curl Contour by L'Oréal Professionnel, as they will deeply nourish, hydrate and define your curly locks.

If you remember when Tom had long curly hair, his curls almost never looked frizzy. To keep yours controlled and frizz-free all day long like his, use a curl cream like Bouncy and Tender Dual Stylers from L'Oréal Professionnel.

How to control short curly hair

Short curls tend to coil and curve inwards towards themselves. If you don't like tight curls on yourself, and prefer a wavier look similar to Tom's current hairstyle, book an appointment with your hairstylist to get a haircut. They'll be able to give you a cut that helps the curls lie smoother and flatter against your head. And don't forget: there are also plenty of hair styling products that can slick your curls down even further, like wax or gel!
