- Prep hair by applying a texturing, thermal protectant to damp hair before blowdrying and styling.
- Then, use a large barrel curling rod, on low heat, to curl sections of hair at a time. Start curls partway down each hair strand you work with, wrapping hair once or twice around the rod, and stop each curl about 1-2 inches from the end of each strand of hair. As you wrap hair around the rod, keep hold of the ends of your hair, and lightly pull down on hair ends when you release hair from the rod. Remember to curl front, face framing layers, away from your face.
- After curling, lightly brush through hair to relax and soften curls. Use the brush to create a side-part.
- To finish styling, spritz the ends of hair with a dry texture finishing spray, and use your fingers to tousle and shape hair, creating a subtle, undone wavy style.
