  1. Choose the appropriate curling iron

    Decide whether you want curls that are large and loose or tight and bouncy. Choose thinner-barreled curling irons for tight curls and thick barrels for large curls.

  2. Choose the right heat setting for your hair

    If you have fine hair, set the curling iron on a low heat setting. If you have thick or frizzy hair, choose a higher heat setting. Spray your hair with a protective treatment before curling.

  3. Divide the hair into sections, and curl

    Divide your hair into 2-inch sections for larger curls and 1-inch sections for tighter curls. Spray with hair spray, and wrap a section around the curling iron. Hold the hair on the iron for 10 to 20 seconds. Repeat with the remaining sections.
