|My hair from meeting Andrew to present|
And so I commence, how to add volume and curl to fine hair using a flat iron:
Step 1: Wash and condition the hair with a volume inducing product. Your shampoo and conditioner are critical in prepping your hair for styling.
Step 2: Apply a volumizing foam and power dry the hair with a blow dryer. Make sure you start drying without a brush, tousling sections in the opposite direction that they normally fall. You want your hair to be 80% dry before you actually start styling it. Round brushing sopping wet hair will increase your dry time, wear out your arms, and amplify breakage.
Step 3: Spritz the crown with a root boost. Then wield your round brush to finish drying the hair, focusing the direction of heat towards the ends of the hair.
Step 6: After boosting the crown, begin curling individual sections. The smaller the section of hair you take and the slower you move it through the hair, the tighter the curl will be. I wanted loose soft waves, so we worked through medium size sections, clamping the iron half way down the tendrils. Once clamped you twist the wrist, wind the hair around the iron, then slowly pull out and away from the head while rotating the iron.
