How to Curl your Hair with a Straightening Iron

It sounds counter-intuitive, but for some reason, my hair holds the best when I curl it using a straightening iron! Sure, it takes a little bit of time to get used to, but once you have the hang of it, you might just turn over completely to the power of the straightening iron!

Personally, I have fine, Danish hair.  Yes, I have a lot of it (says my amazing hairdresser), but it is so fine that curling irons just tend to make my hair limp and lifeless. This is a trick I learned on set that saves time, is efficient, and gives all hair types long lasting, luscious curls!

You will need:

1. A straightening iron

2. Patience

3. Hairspray

4. Clip(s)

Step One: Section your hair with clip(s)

Step Two: almost turn your straightening iron downward, and starting at the roots, turn the iron away from your face in a continuous motion. Continue until all your hair is completed

Step Three: Hairspray and style as you like!

It’s an easy way to do hair, and I hope that you find the patience to make it work!  Check out the video for those who are visual learners, and happy curling!

Love and Beauty,
