Published 24th Nov 2023 by Charlotte Grant-West

Sometimes all you need to do is give gorgeous curls a little zhuzh and Michelle Sultan for BaByliss PRO shows us how with the below curly hair step by step.

The Steps

  1. Start by prepping the hair - make sure you’re working with clean, dry hair and apply a heat protection spray.
  2. Use a wide toothed comb to separate and define some of the curls, and determine the areas you’re going to want to enhance.
  3. Set your curling wand or tong to a temperature of 180° - curly hair can be very fine and fragile and doesn’t require too much heat to set it.
  4. Using a wand with a thin barrel - I used the BaByliss PRO Titanium Expression 10mm Ultra-Slim Wand - go through the hair and choose sections to add more curl to. Wrap the hair fully around the barrel and release between around 5 to 8 seconds.
  5. My trick here is to alternate between the size of tool I’m using, switching between a 10mm and 13mm barrels will give you a variety of different size curls and an overall multi-dimensional look.
  6. Run your fingers through the curls to break them up gently and create a more relaxed appearance. Use a light hairspray to set the curls, and if preferred you can use a drop of hair oil to reduce any remaining frizz. My top tip is to shake out the curls upside down to maximise volume but keep curl definition.
