Getting Better Curl In Fine Hair

August 9, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Those with fine or thin hair sometimes have a very hard time getting some style and body into their hair that will actually stay for the day. Many times they can get a nice look in the mirror, but within the hour the hair has relaxed back to its normal straight appearance. One way to boost those curls that you have spent so much time creating with a hair curling iron is to have many layers cut into your hair. When your hairstyle has lots of layers the curls you place in your hair with the hair iron can better get results that will hold and stay keeping your hair gorgeous not just while you are styling it, but all day long.

Getting Wavy Hair with a Hair Straightening Tool

Everyone knows the best way to get straight luxurious hair if you were not born with it is by using a hair straightening tool. But did you know that same tool could be used to give you gorgeous wavy curls just as easily as it can produce straight hair?  You can make curls and waves with any hair-straightening tool, but it is easier to accomplish a nice curl when you use a hair iron that has a slight curve on the edges of the ceramic plates of the flat iron.

To curl your hair with your professional hair iron divide the hair into small sections so you can curl small areas at a time. Begin at the root of each section of hair and use the flat iron horizontally on the section of hair. Slowly move the hair straightening tool from the root to the top flipping the iron 180 degrees every little bit. By flipping the iron as you go down the section you will create small subtle waves in your hair. You will need to take your time and go slowly on each strand of hair to ensure the heat has the opportunity to take to the hair and create the waves. Once you get the hang of it you will have a hard time deciding between the straight hair look and the wavy hair look when you head out for the evening.
