Step 1: Start by brushing your messy hair thoroughly with a large hairbrush. Then, divide your hair into 2 sections and tie the upper section with a hairband. Use a punch clip to manage your front hair. Make it 3 layers in case of super thick hair.

Step 2: Next, spray heat protecting serum in the lower section, shake your hair properly and wait for a while. Then, divide the section equally brush properly to get rid of tangles.

Step 3: Now, clamp a 2-inch section of hair and start curling by holding the iron machine vertically. Wait for 7 to 12 seconds. It will depend on your hair width.

Step 4: Thus, after curling one section, spray hair setting serum to make it long-lasting. Use the same procedure in another section.

Step 5: After that, untie the upper section.

Step 6: Spray hair setting serum again and wait for a few minutes after mixing it properly into your hair. Front hair won`t be that much curly like the previous one. So, you need to hold the iron for 5-7 seconds for looser curls.

Step 7: Spray all over the hair with serum for the last moment touch up and get a beautifully stylish look.

Precautionary recommendations

Style can give you flawless look, but it can ruin your look as well. So we need to be cautious.

  • Extremely silky hair is not necessary as curls last more in fizzy hair.
  • Wrap your hair from the top of the hair to avoid burning.
  • Make the direction of curls different so that they don`t get tangled.
  • Try to clamp a similar amount of hair every time.
  • 390 degrees should be the maximum limit.
  • Never forget to use hair setting spray.
