how to curl up your hair




how to curl up ur hair : tips
  1. Choose the Right Material for the Job: Curling irons come in a variety of materials including ceramic, tourmaline, gold, titanium, and chrome.
    • Ceramic and tourmaline irons are the best choice. You'll get even heat distribution, frizz control, and a tool that's healthier for your hair.
    • Gold and titanium irons get super hot and can deliver a decent curl, but aren't a great choice for heat and frizz protection.
    • Chrome irons aren't a recommended choice, but are inexpensive and can be purchased at just about any drug store. You may notice curls fall, frizz, and your hair may become fragile after using a chrome iron.
    • Choose the Right Size Tool for the Job: The size barrel on your curling iron will make a big difference in the results. Smaller diameter curling irons (1" or smaller) create smaller curls. Larger curling irons (1.5" or larger) create larger waves. The length of your hair in relation to the size of the curling iron will make a big difference in the amount of curl you achieve as well. The more times you can wrap your hair around the barrel, the more curl you will achieve
    • Prepare Your Hair Properly:
    • ow to Curl Loose Waves: I recommend clipping all of your dried hair up except for a 2" section at the base of your neck. This will allow you to curl small sections, working your way up the head. Comb through each small section of hair, mist with a setting spray or hair spray, and then wrap the hair around the barrel of a large curling iron. Hold the curl for 10-20 seconds, release the curl, and then clip the curl in place with a bobby pin or a double prong hair clip (like these). Continue until your entire head is curled. Allow your curls to cool completely before unclipping them. For a beachy look, use your fingers to style. For a soft romantic look, brush curls out gently.
    • How to Curl Smaller Bouncy Curls: The technique for curling smaller bouncy curls is much the same as curling loose waves, except you'll want to use a smaller curling iron. Clip hair up except for the section you're working in. Smaller sections will create more curl. Start at the base of the neck, comb through hair, spray with hairspray, and wrap the hair around the barrel of the curling iron. Hold each curl for 10-20 seconds then release. Clip each curl into place with a bobby pin or a double prong clip. Style by separating the curls with your fingers, a brush, or a wide tooth comb
