Romantic curls are my favorite, and there’s no better way to wear them than with a delicate tiered ruffle sleeve top. The two just go hand-in-hand. I just did an interview with Perspectyve Magazine, and I went on a long and borderline random tangent about my current obsession with ruffle sleeves. So, you can imagine how ecstatic I was to find an affordable tiered ruffle sleeve top online for $15. It’s a little shorter than I’m used to in the torso, so this particular tiered ruffle sleeve top looks phenomenal tucked into skirts, like this black a-line beauty styled here and here, or high waisted pants. I’ve also seem them not tucked into anything, and the trend can look chic in certain situations, not so much in others—like, for example, as a crop top (another trend I ranted about… unfavorably).
Head to the bottom of this post for full outfit details! And keep scrolling to read more about how I create and maintain these easy romantic curls with Hair Cuttery’s exclusive Cibu line. In case you’ve never heard of it before, Cibu is a high performance professional haircare and styling line with color-safe formulas, offering affordable luxury for every hair type. I’ve been an ambassador of theirs for a while now, so I’m quite familiar Cibu products, and I’m sharing my favorites for long hair in humid climates, like Florida.
Especially for women with long frizzy hair, Cibu’s Spring Roll Curl Shaping Cream is a lifesaver for resisting humidity. It helps give your curls definition and hold their shape while eliminating frizz. It’s also a wonder worker for reviving 2nd and 3rd day curls.
For added glamour, the Cibu “Shine Squad” is also pretty darn incredible for further eliminating frizz while giving your hair that subtle sparkle factor. My favorite shine-inducing product is the Cibu Shine Squad Argan Oil Treatment. It’s ideal for all hair types, which is nice, and it serves as a thermal protectant and shine spray to combat damage from your straightener, curling iron, or wand (basically whatever styling tool you use to curl your hair).
Last but not least, the cornerstone of any healthy hair routine is a quality shampoo and conditioner. Since I’ve admittedly put my hair through the ringer over the past few years with that whole pageant ordeal, Cibu’s Repair Shampoo and Conditioner have been perfect for reducing frizz and preventing further breakage. They’re both also color-safe, sulfate and paraban-free, and contain Keratin and Biotin, which strengthen hair and increase elasticity.
You can also shop all my favorite CIBU products online here or in any Hair Cuttery salon nationwide. Find one near you with their convenient salon locator. I’m on a cruise right now, y’all, but if you have any questions, leave them in the comments! I’ll read and answer everything when I get back to (secure) internet. Happy Monday!
