Transform your hairstyle by learning how to create voluminous curls with a flat iron. Follow this step-by-step guide for bouncy and glamorous curls and avoid common mistakes for a flawless result.
Begin with clean and completely dry hair. Wet or damp hair is not suitable for creating curls with a flat iron as it can lead to uneven results and potential damage to the hair.
Spray a heat protectant evenly throughout your hair. This helps to minimize heat damage and keeps your hair healthy. Comb through your hair to ensure the product is distributed evenly.
Divide your hair into sections using clips or ties. This makes the curling process more manageable and ensures that each section receives equal attention. Start with the bottom layers and work your way up.
Adjust your flat iron to the appropriate temperature for your hair type. Thicker hair generally requires higher heat while finer hair should be styled with lower heat settings to prevent damage.
Take a small section of hair about one to two inches wide. Hold the section away from your face to make it easier to wrap around the flat iron.
Hold the flat iron vertically and clamp it down on the section of hair. Twist the iron away from your face while pulling it down the length of the hair. This motion creates a spiral curl.
For a more natural look alternate the direction of the curls. Some curls should be twisted away from your face while others should be twisted towards your face. This variation adds volume and dimension to your hairstyle.
Continue these steps for each section of hair working your way around your head. Take your time to ensure each curl is well-defined and bouncy.
Once you've curled all sections lightly mist your hair with hairspray to set the curls. Hold the hairspray about 12 inches away from your head to avoid making your hair too stiff.
Now that you've mastered the art of creating voluminous curls with a flat iron enjoy flaunting your glamorous and bouncy hairstyle. Experiment with different variations and have fun styling your hair!
