You start from the bottom up, curl to the top, and when it’s still hot, you pin the curls to your head.

i use redken spray starch (which is seroiusly strong) and kenra shine spray to give my curls back their glossiness (the spray starch gives it a stiff look)

You MUST let them cool to your head. And if you have long hair, it probably STILL will fall because of the weight. you could think about layers on top to cut down on the weight. Or if you want a partial updo, use those very wide bobby pins to sort of hold the natural curl in place as it goes down.

ejs gave some really good advice.

I section my hair all over. Then I start with the bottom section and curl it with the iron going vertical. I hairspray the curls while they are on the iron, then kind of “work” the iron out of the curl from the bottom.

Then I section off another part and repeat. When I get to the top of my head (the crown and back layers), I bring the iron all the way to the end of the curl, then wind it all the way to the roots. Then, keeping the hair wound up in a circle, I slide the iron out and clip the curl to my head with a clip like these:

 

Then I hairspray my whole head and let it sit for 30 minutes or so.

Well, it allows the curl to set before the heat ‘pulls’ the curl out. If you tug on hot curls, they come out. If you let them cool all the way, they stay better.

Also, don’t put conditioner in your hair when you wash it. It makes your hair slippery and you’ll lose some grip
