While you can curl your hair with a curler, you can also do it with your hair straightener. This will become in handy when you want to curl your hair but don’t have a flat ironer at hand. We’ve put together a short guide on how to curl your hair with a straightener.
You’re going to need:
- A straightener
- Hair clips (optional)
- Heat protection spray
Section your hair
Take a small section of hair and clip the rest of your hair back. Keep the section small, as it can get difficult to curl a big section. It’s best to start out with small sections. Spray the heat protection spray onto the section you’re about to curl, and comb trough it with your fingers to spread it out evenly. Now you’re ready to get started!
Hold the hair with the straightener
Clip the ends of the hair between the straightener, you can also start from the middle of the section – it all depends on which way you find more suitable for yourself.
Wrap the hair around the straightener
Start wrapping the hair around the straightener. You can keep it like that for 5-10 seconds, any longer than that would be causing an enormous amount of heat damage to your hair.
You can also lightly let go of the hair during the wrapping and curling, letting the hair slide around the straightener and then off of it. This technique makes the curls look much more natural.
Curled hair with a straightener
Here you can see a bit of my hair being curled, while the rest remains straight and messy. The curls came out to be really cute, if you want to make sure they last for the rest of the day then you need to spray them with some hairspray.
I didn’t want to do my whole head because my hair are very thick, and curling all of that would take an hour. Thick hair take up so much time, most of the time I keep them in a bun.
