Many of you have asked me how I do these waves, and until about 6 weeks ago, I had no clue. I kept practicing and one day about 2 months ago, it just clicked! So now, I'm ready to share it with all of you!
Products and tools I use:
Live Clean Bali Oil shampoo and conditioner (the smell is what does me in)
2 hair clips, you can use more if you like
rat tail comb
Flat iron (mine's a Chi and I've had it for 5 years, it's awesome).
Step 1: Blowdry clean hair straight, with a paddle brush
Step 2: Section your hair, I work on one half first, then move to the other.
Step 3: Use thick sections, comb each one before curling, and curl each piece away from your face. You want to curl toward your shoulder, not your chest.
Step 4: Perform the same work in the opposite direction with the other half of your hair.
Step 5: Pull your bangs out, not down, for a more natural bang.
Method: Clamp down on the hair, twist the iron toward your shoulder a half turn, flip the hair out, and twist the iron another half turn to come full-circle. Pull down fairly fast, and repeat.
I don't have hairspray today, but usually I'd tilt my head back and spray, than fan forward and spray.
Thanks for watching my tutorial on how to curl hair using a flat iron! I hope you found it helpful :)
