How do you make your hair wavy with a curling iron?

I don't know how to make my hair wavy with it, my hair just keeps getting curly.

A curling iron was designed to make curls. You need a hair iron with waves in it. The other options is to curl it but while it is still warm to the touch...brush it and loosen the curls to create more of a wave look! Try curling in new directions too. Most just wrap hair and curl upwards. Try different directions and play with it! I bet if you play some you will find a way to get waves!

Use a curling iron or curlers with a large diameter. Bigger than 1 and a half inches. Looks more wavy than curly.

If your using a curling iron with a clamp, DONT use the clamp. Just wrap sections of your hair around the barrel for a few seconds and release. When all your hair is done brush through it. If needed, slightly wet your hands and run your fingers through your hair. Works every time. Its my go to hair style :)

you can slightly wrap your hair around the iron for a few seconds then take it out

Dont keep your hair on the iron as long. You can also use a straightner. You wrap your hair around it and then just keep pulling it down.
