Q:

How do you curl layered hair?

A:

Quick Answer

To curl layered hair, wash and dry the hair, segment it into sections, apply product, and curl individual strands. Curling layered hair takes roughly an hour and requires texturizing spray, heat-protection spray, a blow dryer, a round brush, a curling iron and hair clips. If your hair is very long or heavy, light-hold hairspray is also needed.

Full Answer

  1. Wash and dry the hair

    Wash the hair as usual. Spray the roots of the hair with texturizing spray. Blow dry the hair straight, using a round brush at the roots for extra volume. The hair must be completely dry before proceeding.

  2. Prepare the hair

    Spray all the hair with a heat-protection spray. Segment the hair into three sections, securing each with clips.

  3. Curl the first strand

    Separate out a 1-inch section of hair. Clamp the curling iron halfway down the strand. Roll the curling iron while working down the strand until all of the hair is along the barrel. Hold in place for up to 15 seconds, depending on the desired strength of the curl. Release the hair. For very long or thick hair, either spritz with a light-hold spray, or roll up and clip the curl.

  4. Alternate the curls

    While working through the first section, alternate the direction of the curls. Repeat the above procedure for all curls in all sections. If the hair has short layers, it is not necessary to start mid-strand. Instead, clamp the iron over the ends of the strand, and curl.

  5. Loosen the waves

    Once the curls have cooled completely, gently run your fingers through the hair to separate the curls.
