Prep Like a Pro

Before diving into hair curling, make sure your hair is prepped and ready to go. Start by applying a  heat protectant spray to shield your hair from any potential damage.

Time to Section

Divide your hair into manageable sections using alligator clips.This step not only makes the curling process easier but also allows you to take care of every section without the hair falling over. 

Temperature Matters

Different hair types require different heat settings. Fine hair? Opt for a lower temperature to avoid frying those delicate strands. Thick or coarse hair? Crank up the heat for longer-lasting curls that hold their shape.

The Technique

A lot of people get confused or don’t know how to use a clamp curling iron because they are used to using a barrel wand, but it’s easier than you think:

Step 1: Start by taking a small section of hair and clamp it between the curling iron's barrel and clamp. 

Step 2: Wrap the hair around the barrel away from your face, holding the ends with your fingers. 

Step 3: Hold for a few seconds, release the clamp, and gently slide the curling iron out. 

Step 4: Repeat this process until all sections of your hair are curled.

Cool Down

Don't let those curls loose just yet! Allow them to cool down completely before running your fingers or a brush through them. This step ensures that your curls set properly, giving you long-lasting bounce and volume.

Finishing Touches

Once your curls have cooled, it's time to add the finishing touches. Apply a lightweight shine hairspray to add shine & lock in your hairstyle.

Maintenance is Key

To keep your curls looking fabulous for days to come, invest in a satin pillowcase to prevent friction and frizz while you sleep.
