I had a request a couple weeks ago for a tutorial on how I curl my hair since it's a little shorter and this person has a similar length.
I use a flat iron to curl my hair...I think it holds the curl longer and it also doesn't give you that tight ringlet look that a curling iron can give (on short hair! long hair I used a curling iron and flat iron)
Learning to curl your hair with a flat iron can be tricky....but don't get discouraged it honestly takes practice! You will get faster over time.
Please excuse the creepy pictures....I did them myself on a tripod with a timer.
It was weird.
so here we go!
I always like to curl my hair when it is dirty (I'm talking two or three days dirty...in my case 5? eek)
or after I have showered and slept on my hair, then it's already kinda wavy. Either way works.
Clean hair doesn't hold curl as long just FYI
If you prefer you can spray your hair before hand with thermal spray ( i did not)
Continue this process around the head, pulling hair from the back around to the side
do not try curling hair upwards like you do with a curling iron...it will not work
