How Do You Curl Hair?

To curl your hair with a curling wand, preheat the wand, comb the hair, apply heat styling spray, wrap small sections around the curling wand, and apply hairspray. This 45-minute process requires a mirror, heat styling spray, a heatproof glove, a comb, a hair clip and hairspray.

  1. Prepare the hair and curling wand

    Plug in the curling wand, and turn it on. Comb the hair, spray it liberally with heat styling spray, and comb the product through the hair.

  2. Curl the bottom half of the hair

    Make a horizontal part around the back of the head, and clip the hair in the upper portion to the crown of the head. Comb the remaining hair, put a heatproof glove on your dominant hand, and pick up a small section of hair. Hold the curling wand vertically. Wrap the hair around the barrel, hold it for 10 seconds, and then release it. For a tighter curl, hold the hair around the wand for 20 seconds. Repeat with the remaining hair.

  3. Curl the remaining hair

    Unclip the remaining hair, and curl it in small sections. Unplug the curling wand, and remove the glove.

  4. Apply hairspray

    Flip your head upside down, apply flexible-hold hairspray, return your head to the upright position, and spray the hair again.
