For small tight curls in your hair curling iron barrels can come in a size as small as three-eights of an inch. These very small barrels create very tight curls in your hair, which can be left hanging or even used to create a gorgeous updo. Wrap small sections of hair around the barrel and hold for five seconds. Spray the curls with a small amount of spritz and then do not touch them until they dry.

Absolutely more professional with hair up while the hair down is more suited for a casual outing.

If you haven’t had time to get a trim and frizzy ends are making your locks fall lank, tie them up, says Barry Reitman, a celebrity stylist at Juan Juan in Beverly Hills.

Straightening your hair with a hair iron is great for a sleek easy up hair do as well, it leaves the hair that you leave outside of the elastic in a straight sort of “messy look”
