o Now let your hair air dry. You shall find lovely waves in your hair.
- By using curling iron
o If you are in a rush to create your look, you may lose curling iron. If your hair is naturally curly or wavy you may select a large barreled iron. On the other hand if your hair is absolutely straight you need to curl it tighter and for that you need a narrow barreled iron.
o Once you have curled your entire volume of hair, you may use your fingers to tousle your hair to ease the curls and turn them wavy instead of curly.
