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. Section and clip dry hair into diagonal sections, which will give hair a softer look, says Moticka. Grab a two-inch section of hair and comb through it.
2. Lift up the section from the ends and mist with light-hold hairspray to create lift. Carefully wrap the hair in a spiral manner around the barrel of the iron (from roots to the tips), pointing the iron downward toward the floor.
3. Let hair sit on iron for 10 to 20 seconds, holding the ends tightly around the barrel the entire time. Release hair and mist section lightly with hairspray. Continue until your entire head is curled.
For soft, glam waves brush through curls with a natural bristle brush. To get a piece-y, beachy feel, simply shake out the curls with your hands.
