I had the same problem, I could never curl my hair, but I figured out how with 10 simple steps.
1.)Make sure your hair is completely dry (important) 2.)Put 1/2 your hair up in a clip 3.)Take a very small piece of hair from the bottom half, and wrap it around the curling iron from bottom to top 4.)Wait about 22 seconds, and then release the curl. 5.)hold the curl in your hand for 10 seconds 6.)Spray the curl with strong hold hairspray 7.)Do the same thing With the rest of the bottom half of your hair 8.)Put the curls over your shoulder (just to make steps 9-10 easier) 9.)Take the hair that you put up in a clip down. 10.)Repeat steps 1-7
Curling your hair in halves will make the curl last longer, since the curl wont have as much to hold. Sometimes, I like to put the upper half of my hair in a hairtie, And curl it while it's in the hairtie. It creates a cute, half up half down look. This is optional, but once I'm done, I like to gather all the hair over one shoulder. And please make sure your hair is dry. If its wet when you curl it it will fry. Good luck!!!!
start by curling a column on the top going from the front to the back about 3-4 inches wide. run the curling iron up about an inch and a half worth of hair until it spread out and reaches the very ends. roll it down/. for extra curl spray a little water on it/ start in the front of your head making curles vertically and work your way back to the end of the crown of your head. next , pick a side of your head and starting from the front curl horazontally down the side of your head all the way to the back. do each side. then curl the back under. dont brush out your hair, just tossle it and shake it out with your fingers and spray with hair spray while leaning upside down and shaking your head. if you need more volume or have thin hair, use a thickening powder like powder play by big sexy hair
