I finally understand why I never achieve that perfect curl that lasts all night, thats bouncing yet effortless. It’s all about how your hair looks before you curl it and what tools you use. Here’s some tutorials and tips to help you the next time you curl your hair for that celebrity worthy finish. Ohh did I mention that Kylie Jenner’s stylist uses these hot tool on her hair?
If you have curly hair or frizzy hair straighten your hair before you curl! It sounds counterintuitive but making sure all your hair is sleeked out before you style it can help all your curls look the same and prevent making them look like they've been dragged through a bush. If you only have a few kinks here and there you don't need to worry too much but the sleeker it is the better the final result will look.
Use a heat protectant before you fry your hair! It still shocks me that people don't use heat protectants, it's vital if you want your hair to keep it's healthy shine. Similar to going to the beach on a hot day, you know those UV rays will burn so you use sunscreen to stop your skin from frying this is what the heat protectant does to your hair. Protects your hair from frying.
Start curling! You want the good stuff now right? Here's Kylie Jenner's hair tutorial using the Hot Tools Professionals curling wands.
