How to curl your hair like a PRO

I love the Beach Babe Wavy Hair - this one of my favorite hair styles, and together with the belayage colour it has been my signature look now for more than three years.  My hair is naturally wavy, which helps hold the curl longer, but I also use the Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother to create a smooth surface -  that way the curling wand glides better and also protects my hair from the heat, and the result is always soft, frizz-free curls. My favorite curling wand is Mark Hill Rock Chick Wave Wand, but you can really use any curling wand.
This is how I curl my hair - for the best results I  recommend you always start with a clean and blow dryed hair.

Divide your hair into two sections; bottom and top layer.

Start with the bottom layer, take a two cm hair strand and wrap it tightly around the barrel, while holding it in a vertical position - make sure to leave the ends out. And also wear a protective glove, it usually comes with the curling wand, although I am always too lazy to wear one, I rather keep burning my fingers.

Hold the iron in this position for about 5 second, but never longer than that.

Release the hair and pull the curling iron out and repeat the same procedure with the rest of the hair.

On the top layer, start curling your hair from the ear level down for a  modern look.

And voila, sexy wavy salon hair made in the comfort of your home. Don't over do it though as the heat can demage your hair. If you hair is already heat demaged, one and cheap and cheerful but very effective deep hair treatment is just to heat two tea spoons of coconut or olive oil and aply it to your end and leave it in as long as possible.  Happy curling girlies!
