Start crimping

Take a small section from the bottom half of your hair. Clip this section using hair crimpers to create small, well-defined waves. Start from the roots and work your way down to the tips of your hair.

Repeat until the entire bottom section of your hair has been curled. Then, unclip the top section and curl it one small section at a time using your hair crimpers. 

When you’re done, scrunch your hair near the roots to add bounce and volume.
