I’m sure a lot of us straight haired girls have complained at one point or another that we can’t get our hair to hold curl. Like, at all. Usually the words “stick straight” are also used (though really, sticks aren’t straight?), so I called in a few experts to find out their tricks to getting our hair curly in the salon. (And I admit that I couldn’t resist buying this stock picture, doesn’t she look like she’s maniacally happy that her hair is finally curled?)
Alfredo Lewis I take round sections of hair, starting at the bottom and build my foundation. I go section by section, spraying each with a strong holding spray before using a curling iron. I hold the iron upside down and wrap each section tightly around the iron. Hold and then release.
Andrea Dion Jacobs Curling with an iron hair should be dry and a little “dirty”. Day old hair is perfect, if not spray nice workable hair spray throughout the hair, I like Bumble and Bumble Classic and brush through. Spray each section again with hair spray as you iron the hair, clipping up the curl as you go along. Once all clipped up let “set” for a minute or 2 (great time to do your make up) then release and style. You can always work out a curl too tight than desired then try to make it tighter after the fact.
