How to curl short hair with a straightener
Start by brushing your hair to remove any knots or tangles.
Part your hair down the middle at the back and section your hair into two sections. Use a clip to hold one side of the hair away from the other side.
Split the loose section of hair into two again so there is a top section and a bottom section. Clip the top section away.
There are two methods to curl your hair. With the first method, hold your straightener diagonally to the ground, wrap the hair around once, then quickly slide toward the end. This results in a looser wave.
With the second method, hold the straightener parallel to the ground, wrap the hair around tightly, then slowly slide the straightener toward the end. The slower you move the straightener, the tighter the curl will be.
Start at the back and take small sections of hair, curling toward the front, using the curling method you prefer.
Once the bottom section of hair has been curled, repeat all the steps on the top section of hair. Once one side of your head has been curled, you can move on to the next side. When curling around your face, point the straightener away from your face if you want your curls to sit away from your face.
Once you've curled all your hair and the hair has cooled down, take your fingers and quickly brush out the curls for a looser, effortless look.
Remember to always use heat protectant prior to styling your hair with hot tools to prevent damage to your hair. You can also use hairspray at the end, if you're into that kinda thing and want the curls to last longer :)
