There are a lot of ways to curl your hair, but this is the best way. Plus, you can start doing it today, even if you don’t think you’re very good at doing your own hair. Easy & perfect, just the way I like it. _____________________________________________
Like I said, there’s a ton of ways to curl you hair, but this is so easy and so fast that it’s a great style to know. If you are used to only curling your hair with a curling rod, don’t worry, that will be my next curl video, but this is easy to do and very hard to mess up. Works well on almost every type of hair and can be done in less than 10 minutes.
- Brush through your hair so that it’s tangle free
- Whether your hair is dirty or not, spray dry shampoo liberally all over, taking your finger tips and rubbing it into your roots. By now you should have picked up on how much dry shampoo I use, even if my hair is clean.
- Taking your comb, part your hair down the middle.
- Section your hair off at the lowest layer, nearest to the nape of your neck. Put the rest of your hair up with the clip.
- Taking 1/2″ – 1″ sections of your hair, clamp the curling iron in the middle of the hair, twisting around once AWAY from your face, lowering the curling iron and twisting around once to twice more, depending on the length of your hair this varies. Leave 1-2″ out at the bottom and 1-2″ out at the top. You just want to curl the middle section of your hair.
- After you’ve done both sides of this layer, take down another layer and repeat step 5.
- Pro-tip: if you want really full hair, do multiple small layers of hair, curling smaller amounts of hair at a time.
- Once you get to the layer around the middle of your ear, pay close attention that the break of the curl aligns with your cheekbones, and never higher. Continue to repeat step 5 until you’ve gotten to the top layer around the crown.
- The top layer is the most important. Take the front piece, clamp around the middle, and flip the curling iron so it’s parallel to your face. Remember, keep the break aligned with the cheekbones as to accentuate them. Repeat on other side. For the remainder of the layer, curl as you did the rest of your hair.
- Once you’re done curling the whole head, GENTLY brush the curls out so that they blend together. GENTLY being the key word here. Always brushing BACK and not down. This step helps to pull the layers together and make it look fluid.
