    I think the standard is away from face. But I also know someone who alternates between every chunk of hair- one curled away, one curled towards, one curled away, etc… Try it both ways and see how you like it! This alternating method would definitely help prevent your curls from clumping together. But I’d definitely do the strands closest to your face curled away. 

    Heres a good video of the alternating method and she explains why it gives a different effect:

    The initial curls on each side are away from your face usually and then alternate so they dont clump together.

    It very much depends on the look you want! I personally like uniform waves that clump together similar to finger waves, so I curl both sides away from my face.

    If you want a more tossled beachy look, first strands away and then alternate.

    I curl away from my face!  I always liked that kind of beachy wave and I remember 10 years ago when I was a receptionist at a salon, a stylist was helping a woman who walked in wanting to recreate a grey’s anatomy blow out she had seen on the main character.  The stylist was saying you always curl away from your face.  So I use that in every curling situation lol

    The sections that frame your face should be curled away. If your curls clump together then it is helpful to alternate. Also it is helpful to brush out your curls with a wide tooth comb or your fingers (once they cooled) to help break them apart.

    I think mine looks better when I alternate. The sections next to my face are curled away.
