“Try it and let me know how you go”

When it comes to caring for curly hair, we’re all ears when a celeb shares their top tips.

Remember when Zendaya graced us with her curl care routine? A day for the books.

And now, ex-MAFS star Martha Kalifatidis has hopped onto TikTok to share her favourite hack for perfectly air-dried curls every time. 

“If you have curly or frizzy hair you need to try this hack,” Kalifatidis insisted in the video. 

“My natural hair type is curly, frizzy, unruly [and] I love to wear my hair natural but it does need a bit of help and a bit of work,” she went on to say.

Her low-fuss solution? “Grab a silk scarf,'' said Kalifatidis as she wrapped a pink number around her damp curls. “If you don’t have a silk scarf, use a T-shirt.”

Then she tied the scarf under her chin and secured it at the sides of her head using a few bobby pins; “I’ll wear this for a few hours while my hair dries.”

“When you take this off, your hair will have never looked better,” she insisted before she checked in for her big reveal after five hours.

“My hair has been wrapped in this all day,” said the MAFS star. “Depending on how flat you want your hair you’ll make [the headscarf] tighter or looser, but I like to leave it a bit loose.”

“Let’s do this reveal,” she teased as she slipped the scarf off her head.

“It’s a bit flat at the top,” she admitted. “But you can style it. I might just get the [curling] wand and do a few little bits [around the face].” 

“But overall, look at how perfect your curls are because of the scarf… they’re all so flat and uniform, and there’s barely any frizz,” she exclaimed. 

“Please try it and let me know how you go.”

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
