We all want those soft pretty curls, attending a birthday brunch or a wedding? Soft curls are a winner! Below is my step by step hair curling tutorial. If you want to do a quick bun or up style, I recommend doing a quick curl before hand as it will make it easier to style.
You’ll see I always fold the hair away from the face, this is my personal way of curling the hair opposed to curling towards the face. Find what suits your personal technique or facial features.
Step #1 Section the hair from the middle parting to the ears and clip away.
– Repeat on the other side.
Step #2 Section the remaining hair into two sections, ear to ear.
Step #3 Using your curing wand (I have the Veaudry Curler) fold the hair over the wand.
– Continue to fold the hair over the wand.
– Continue to wrap the hair around the wand. The size/tightness of the curl will depend on the amount of hair you take.
– Use the little finger gloves to hold onto the ends of the hair, this will prevent burning your finger tips.
Tip: If you want the curl to start towards the roots take less hair and do a tighter curl. You can do the higher section then work your way down the hair if you do have long hair.
Step #4 Continue and repeat with the second section of hair.
Tip: You can pull the curl to loosen/soften, do this while the hair is still hot.
Step #5 Take the top section and divide.
Step #6 Curling inwards, curl third section.
– Repeat fourth section.
Tip: You can spray if you want a better hold on the curl.
Step #7 Curl the front section, curl away from the face. If any loose ends fall out, no worry! Go back and do a slightly tighter curl on the front bangs.
– Repeat with the last section.
Step #8 Ruffle the hair. Set with spray.
A soft and feminine look for all occasions.
