@Bubbles42:  hot iron and the ideal is to do some inward and others outwards.

1 – 1 1/2 inch Curling Iorn.


Just do them in thick ringlets


Also your cut has to be layered and your face needs to be framed…


this is how I do my hair almost daily.

This picture is a 3/4ths iorn

Curling iron. I would use a legit curling iron though (with clamp) as opposed to a curling wand. I would try 1-1.5 inch barrel, maybe use 2 different sizes and vary the curls. Curl away from your face.

I use a clampless curling iron.  I love it!


put a drop of skinny paul mitchell serum in your palm and rub your hands together, put on ends of your wet hair, blow dry freely (without styling).

Then I hairspray my hair all over and wipe it through with my hands, and flip my hair upside down and do it again.

then I part my hair the way I want it, and do a forward curl on the left side, and alternate direction for the right side.  I take larger sections for that look.  

It looks high at first, but it’ll settle…and for me holds for 3 days. (Looks best on the 2nd day) but you can always run your fingers through your hair to loosen.

I’m all about the curling wands. I was never able to curl my hair growing up – I tried everything, from soft, hard and hot rollers to hard rollers to curling irons to rags, you name it, I tried it and it didn’t work. The wand has been life changing for my hair and I absolutely love it! Everytime I go to a group event with ladies someone will see it and ask about it… I’ve already converted a number of friends over, haha! Too bad I’m not making a commission haha 🙂

A flat iron can work too.

I tend to use my flat iron and curling iron. I curl the under layer in front forward and then the top layers and back backwards. I normally do it all with my flat iron and then go back with my big curling iron and make any funky curls perfect. =) it may take a little practice to get the hang of it, but once you do it is super quick and easy! =)

@BlondeMissMolly:  agreed.

@Bubbles42: You’d need an iron with a clamp since the very ends of her hair are curled. I’d curl the face framing layers away from the face, then alternate with pieces thereafter. This style has a lot to do with her haircut though.

I curl the ends of my hair every time I blow dry, and it takes no more than 10-15 minutes (I have very long and thick hair). Using a wand is easier and quicker, but it won’t give you these types of curls unless you gently pull the wand out of the curls and let them cool in your hand while each piece is still in formation.

@Bubbles42:  For that look, it will be easiest to use a curling iron with a clamp- I prefer hot tools.  It works a million times better than a revlon or con air and it is quicker too.  do every other curl in the opposite direction, it will help them stay separated and not assimilate.  Hairspray before you curl will help it stay throughout the day. 🙂

@Bubbles42:   It takes me about 10-15 minutes and my hair is almost to my waist now and that’s if I fully curl all of it.

it honestly takes practice. I have been doing my hair for 12 years like this. 

Im the curl queen and curl it almost every day.

it also depends on your hair type.

you have to train your hair also I did use hot rollers to train mine to curl so easily

you can use rollers to get this look but you have to figure out what the dampness to how long to leave them in ratio is.

you also need to fignite out what kind of iorn….

even tho they are cheaper I prefer conair over any professional iron I have ever used.

and to top it all of you need to figure out what product if any and if you need to apply it before or after.

it can be a lot of work to figire out your curling needs if you have not been doing it your entire life
