You Will Need
- A flat iron
- Heat protection spray
- A crimping iron
- Hair pins
- Hair elastics
Wash, condition, and dry hair
Wash and condition your hair and dry it thoroughly. If you have curly or wavy hair, straighten it with a flat iron before crimping.
Spray your hair with a heat protection mist to protect your hair shafts from the heat of the crimping iron.
Separate your hair into 2-inch sections. Crimp all of your hair for a dramatic look or select a few pieces just to highlight your face.
Use crimping iron
Heat the crimping iron according to the manufacturer's specifications. Crimp your hair sections from the roots to the ends, holding the iron closed for about 4 seconds at a time.
Pull your hair back with an elastic band or hair pins to show off the crimping. Don’t forget to use hairspray to set your look.
