Started with previously blow-dried hair.


Prepared hair with Awaken Texture Spray to absorb oil and give texture.


Heated iron to 380 degrees.

Allow curls to cool completely before separating.

Check out the angle.


I do not have any hair under the parietal ridge. This is to eliminate the bulk that creates the puppy dog ears look. If you have hair under the parietal ridge then hold the hair straight out horizontally and curl starting at the root. At the round of your head or above the parietal ridge be sure to hold the hair out to create the lift at the roots for volume.


Slow and steady with the iron all the way to the ends.

Start bending the iron back away from your face on the base closest to your root.

Slowly glide the iron down the shaft, keeping the angle all the way to the ends.

Allow curls to cool completely before separating with your fingers and finishing with a finishing spray for hold and protection from the humidity.
