How to Curl Hair Like a Pro
Follow these expert hair care tips to learn how to curl hair into perfect curls every time you style
1. Divide and clip your dry hair into manageable sections. Working from the nape of your neck up first, grab a one-inch section and comb through it.
2. Pick up the section at the ends and mist with a light-hold hairspray to create lift. If your curling iron has a clamp, clamp hair at the ends and roll up until it is completely around the barrel. If you are working with a curling wand, wrap section around the barrel starting at the roots.
3. Hold hair on the iron for 10 to 20 seconds. Continue working in sections until your entire head is curled.
4. Finish by gently finger combing curls and misting entire head with hairspray.
If your hair has a hard time holding a curl, once you release the section from the iron, roll it back up on your fingers and secure with duckbill clip. If you are concerned about creating weird clip marks around your hairline, place a small piece of tissue paper (or toilet paper) between the clip and your hair. Leave hair in clips until your entire head is finished and hair is completely cooled, says Moticka. Then you can release and finger comb.
