So, you’ve gotten used to your IRON Straightening Brush and already know the ins and outs of straightening your hair. But did you know that the IRON can do more than just straighten your hair?
If you're looking to create soft, bouncy curls without using traditional curling irons or hot rollers, the IRON can be a great tool to achieve this look. This versatile tool can straighten your hair as well as create soft, flowing curls with ease.
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to curl your hair with the Hoppy Beauty IRON Straightening Brush.
Step 1: Prepare Your Hair
Before you begin, make sure your hair is clean and dry. Apply a heat protectant spray or cream to your hair to prevent damage from the heat of the straightening brush. Make sure to distribute the product evenly throughout your hair, paying extra attention to the ends of your hair.
Step 2: Section Your Hair
Section your hair into manageable sections using clips. The size of the sections will depend on your hair thickness and how much hair you have.
If you have thick hair, you may want to work with smaller sections to ensure that the heat from the straightening brush is evenly distributed throughout your hair.
Step 3: Start with the Bottom Layers
Starting at the bottom of your head, take a small section of hair, about an inch wide, and place the straightening brush at the root of the hair.
With your other hand, pull the hair down and away from your head as you move the brush down toward the ends of your hair.
Step 4: Begin Curling
Once you reach the ends of your hair, twist the straightening brush inwards, towards your head, and hold for a few seconds. The longer you hold the brush in place, the tighter the curl will be. Then, gently release the hair from the brush by pulling it down and away from your head.
Step 5: Repeat
Repeat the above step with the rest of your hair, working your way up toward the crown of your head. As you move up towards the top layers of your hair, you may want to use smaller sections of hair to create more defined curls.
Step 6: Finish with Hairspray
Once you've curled all of your hair, finish with a light mist of hairspray to hold the curls in place. If you want a more natural, flowing look, you can skip this step or use a flexible hold hairspray.
Tips for Curling Your Hair with a Straightening Brush
Curling your hair using a straightener gets easier over time, but here are some helpful tips that'll make this process smoother:
- Start with a lower heat setting and work your way up if necessary. Too much heat can damage your hair, so it's important to find the right temperature for your hair type.
- Be patient. Curling your hair with a straightening brush may take some practice, especially if you're not used to using this tool.
- Use smaller sections of hair for tighter curls, and larger sections for more relaxed waves.
- For more volume, start curling your hair closer to the root.
- To create a more natural look, alternate the direction of your curls. Curl some sections towards your face and others away from your face.
- Use a light hand when curling the ends of your hair to avoid creating a harsh, angular look.
- If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, you may be able to skip the curling step altogether and simply use a straightening brush to smooth and tame your curls.
