I have three main hairstyles, straight, steam rollers, or waving iron. Today I’m giving you a glimpse of how I use the waving iron. I start at the back and work my way up and finish around my hairline with a curling iron. Here are a few tips and tricks to keep you flawless.

You’ll need: A 3 prong waving iron, a 3/4 inch curling iron, three alligator clips, and a small mirror.

  1. You can let your hair airdry and then do this style or blow it out first, depending upon your curl pattern. I usually shampoo my hair the night before, let it dry while sleeping, and style it in the morning.
  2. This style will last you several days! All you need is some hair powder (I recommend Moroccan Oil spray hair powder).
  3. You may have to retouch around your face with the curling iron on day 2 or 3.
  4. This is an excellent base for a braided updo on day 2 or 3.
  5. Practice, practice, practice. It will feel awkward the first few times; you will get it eventually. Don’t give up!
