Wash your hair

Clip it

Gather a section of hair and clip it. Let this section stay in place as you work on the other sections of your hair.

Curl it

Wrap a small, unclipped section of hair around the barrel of a curling iron. Clamp your hair for three to five seconds to create well-defined curls before releasing.

Pin it

Roll your curled section of your hair and pin it to help the curls set. Do this every time you finish curling a section of your hair. Continue until all sections of your hair have been curled and pinned. After the last curl, leave your hair pinned for 5 to 10 minutes to let the shape set.

Add hair clips

Keep on finger-combing your hair to style your curls. Then, add fun to your hairstyle by putting on hair clips. Wear them on both sides of your hair.

You can wear as many or as few as you like. You can even create a series of clips or make the clips form an “X” on your hair.
