With the number of curlers available in the market, it’s hard to sift through the numerous marketing schemes and gimmicks to find out the right curling tool for the waves you want to achieve. With things like curling irons, hot rollers, and curling rods being thrown around, all we want to know is what’s the easiest way to achieve our dream curls?
Let’s start with foam rollers! This method is best for girls on the go who don’t have enough time in the morning to fuss with their hair.
STEP ONE: ROLL
All you have to do is slip a section of your hair into the foam roller and roll upwards. When you get to your ears (or wherever you want the curls to start), insert one end of the roller into the other end to keep the hair coiled.
STEP TWO: SLEEP
That's right. You do this just before you doze off at night. Work your way around your whole head and prepare to drift off to Dreamland.
STEP THREE: UNRAVEL
In the morning, unravel your rollers and say hello to bouncy waves that last all throughout the day.
THE FINISHED LOOK: Happy, bouncy curls
Another method is to use a curling iron for faster results.
STEP ONE: PROTECT
Before anything else, spray your hair with a heat protectant to prevent damage.
STEP TWO: CLAMP
Grab a section of the hair and clamp it into the iron. Don’t forget to roll the iron outward and away from your face.
STEP THREE: HOLD AND RELEASE
Hold the iron in place for ten seconds before releasing.
STEP FOUR: SPRITZ
After curling your hair, keep your curls in place by giving them a good spritz of your favorite hair spray.
THE FINISHED LOOK: Perfected waves
And, voila! Salon-perfect curls done in the comforts of your own home.
