How To: Curl Hair With A Straightener & Curling Wand! By Brittany Marie
- When you start curling, clamp the hair and flip the hair AND the straightener backward at the same time.
- Quickly run the straightener all the way down your piece of hair.
- For the back, shorter pieces of your hair, curl under instead of backwards. The backwards technique might not work for the shorter pieces, but curling under definitely will.
