If you're tired of the lines and kinks produced when using a curling iron with a clamp, a curling wand may be the thing for you! These wonderful thermal tools work geniusly to curl your hair without the use of a clasp to create smooth, full spirals.
For added volume and length, you may want to start with high quality 100% remy human hair clip in extensions like Bellami Hair. These will be crucial in achieving flawless hair that can easily hold curls, waves or any texture using thermal products and tools.
If you’re using hair extensions, make sure to start with freshly washed and detangled hair extensions. Blow out hair using heat protectant, then detangle hair properly, making sure there are no knots or tangles so the wand can work it’s magic.
When selecting a curling method, a small-barreled wand will be your best bet for tighter curls. For looser waves, a large-barreled wand will be useful in achieving that old Hollywood glam style.
Continue by sectioning off a small portion of the back of your hair and pinning the rest. Follow with combing that section again to ensure hair is entirely tangle free.Then take a section of hair and wrap it around the wand either towards your face or away from your face- depending on how you want your hair to be set, and then hold for about 10 seconds.
Repeat the above steps for each section of your hair. Once you get to the front of your head, make sure to part hair as desired. Remember the bigger the section the looser the curl, the smaller the section the tighter the curl.
In order to keep the curl in place, you’ll want to let it set so slowly slide your hair off the want, don’t just drop it. While it may sound simple, when you drag your hair downward before you let it cool in your hand, you won’t get those long lasting curls.
For looser curls or waves, you’ll want to hold your want vertically. If you’re going for tighter, bouncier curls, pull the wand downward and hold horizontally. When the curls set at these angles, they cool down to secure the desired bend. If you have short hair, it’s best to use a small-barreled wand facing down which will create tighter curls on the underside and give your hair a fuller, voluminous look for a flirty play on texture and depth.
If you are using a more tapered wand, turn it upside down so your roots will have larger curls than the bottom of your hair. The secret to long lasting curls is to start curling from your hair root as it locks heat and keeps it long-lasting.
Keep in mind, the amount of time you hold the curl matters. You can hold the curling wand on your hair for 5-10 seconds and receive a loose curl that still has a bounce, or hold it for 15-20 seconds and get a tighter bouncy curl.
Whichever curling method you ultimately choose, using top quality 100% remy human hair extensions like Bellami Hair will help you achieve that flawless, luxurious look every time you style your hair.
