Curls, Curls, Curls!

So recently I have received many e-mails from my lovely readers about how I do my hair to make it curly so I have decided to do a post on how to get curls like me!Those are the example of all of the different curls I do. I don't use curlers, I use usually a 1" or a 1.5" curling iron when curling my hair. I use the cheap curling irons that you can get from Target that are Conair or Revlon because my hair can hold a curl relatively well. If your hair doesn't hold a curl too well, I suggest getting a good quality curling iron, even something like Hot Tools would be best. So here are the steps I use to get party ready curls! (note: I have very thick hair so it usually takes me about 30 minutes curl my hair).

1. I know most hairstylists recommend to curl your hair when it is not freshly washed, however, I think it's best to first wash and condition your hair, brush it out wet, and then blow dry until completely dry.

2. Once your hair is dry, separate the top 50% of your hair from the bottom. I usually use a plastic clip and just put my hair in a ball on the top of my head.

3. Then separate the bottom half of your hair into two sides and start on one side by taking about 1 inch sections and curling them each. The more hair that is put into each curl, the less curly your hair will look or stay because the heavier the curl, the more likely it is to fall out. I try to make my curls tight at the beginning so they have time to fall out.

4. Once the bottom 50% is curled, I let the top 50% loose and do the same as I did to the bottom.

5. After my hair is entirely curled, I go over my hair with Aussie Sprunch Catch the Wave Hair Spray (flexible hold)

6. Then I shake my head out so the curls get a more "full look"

Do you have any great hair tips? I'd love to know them! Curling your hair is perfect for a night out, or perfect for a presentation or special day! Have an amazing day!
Yours,

Your hair looks great! I love curls, but try as I might, I cannot get my hair to hold them. I may try a better curling iron, though. Thanks for the info!

LOVE your hair! I'd kill to get mine to curl and stay curled like that! I have really thick, heavy hair and getting it to curl and stay curl is difficult.

Thanks for the great tips!

You have beautiful hair, I love the look. I will have to bookmark this and try! The only tip I have is to get more than one day out of my blow dry, I pull my hair into a ponytail on the top of my head as close to my bangs as possible.

Gorgeous hair! The only tip I have is to use Biolage Curl hold spray....My hair never holds curl but if I use this before each curl my hair stays pretty all night long!

You have fabulous hair! I'm so glad I came across this post, I have curly hair and can never figure out how to "curl" my hair the proper way. I know, funny right? But I love the way my hair looks when it's styled with a curling iron. I'll have to try it!
