BIG CURLS. Probably the most requested type of curl my clients have been always asking me when doing their hair. There are a lot of ways out there to get big curls but this one’s my most recommended because it’s easy and we’re using a flat iron-which is btw much easier to find than the big barreled ones.

Step 1. PREP YOUR HAIR

My hair’s originally straight and flat. It’s one of those types that can’t hold curls for a period longer than an hour! Sigh. That’s why this step for me, is very important. Prepping my hair includes putting hair mousse and hair spray all over my hair before curling. Instant lift, texture and hold!

Step 2. SECTION YOUR HAIR

When curling your hair, it’s easier to section hair into manageable pieces. Here, I’m taking roughly an inch of my hair to curl.

Step 3. CURLING

Since not everyone has the big barrel curlers, I’m using a flat iron to curl my hair so that you also can try doing this at home.

TIP* DONT TOUCH YOUR CURLS just yet! Touching your curls when it’s still hot will put all your efforts in vain. Instead let it set and cool. Letting your hair cool down before styling makes the curls mega last longer! I promise! You can use rollers or bobby pins!

Step 4. REMOVE HAIR PINS

Wait about at least an hour or two or until your curls have already cooled down before removing the hair pins. Just enough time to do your makeup or eat!

Step 5. THE TRICK… COMB YOUR CURLS

WAIT WHAT?? I just curled my hair and you want me to what?? Haha! I know! Most people freak out when their curls get combed. But that’s because they haven’t set their curls properly. Again let your curls cool down first. This process will lock your curls and will not go crazy AWOL when we restyle it.
Using a big flat brush, comb your hair then style however you want. Another tip! Be sure to curl your hair in one direction. We comb to combine sections of hair together thus creating a bigger wave. Aha!

I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!|
