Do you want to create beautiful waves on your hair but do not have the right equipment? Do not panic! You can completely curl your hair with your straightener by following the technique presented below. Note that it is preferable to have a straightener with rounded ends.
Curling Hair: how to do it?
From a slight wave for a “wavy” effect to more elaborate curls for a more sophisticated side, you can play with all styles!
Step 1: Take your straightener and heat it to the desired temperature (about 180° for fine, sensitized hair and about 230° for normal to thick hair).
Step 2: Spray a thermo-protective spray all over the hair, emphasizing the lengths.
Step 3: Wrap a more or less fine lock of hair, depending on the desired effect, between the two plates of the straightener.
Step 4: Once the strand is “trapped”, slide the straightener down, while rotating it between your hands to create the wave.
Step 5: Repeat the operation for all the hair.
Step 6: For a more natural fall, loosen the waves with your fingers.
Step 7: Finalize the hairstyle with a salty texturizing spray, for example, or a shine-effect hairspray.
If you want a result with wide waves, take large strands of hair. If, on the contrary, you want a more voluminous effect, opt for smaller locks. You can also decide to start from the top of the root or just wave the lengths.
Little tip: for a wavy effect, leave the tip of the hair straight!
