Your hair curler has so much potential, but are you getting the most out of it? In your hands, you hold the power to achieve Victoria's Secret waves, Shakira’s natural curls, and so much more. Are you ready to lock in all these new styles?

In this article, we’ll guide you through five easy curling techniques that look great on your hair and are also perfect for styling clip-in extensions.

First off, ensure you have a good quality hair curler to get the best results. GHD hair curlers do a brilliant job of executing everything from those wonderful waves and tight curls. 

Loose waves

Starting off with something more relaxed and easy to get the hang of, we have the loose wave. It’s honestly perfect for anyone who is pressed for time but still wants to ensure they’re looking put-together. 

  1. First, grab a thick section of hair and place it around the barrel
  2. Instead of holding your hair in place, make a slight rolling motion with the curler
  3. Let go after a few seconds, and viola! The perfect, easy-going wavy do.

Natural curls

Are you the kind of person who prefers a natural look? Then grab your curling wand or tongs, and it’s time to get the most effortless and beautiful natural curl. To achieve a more natural-looking curl, you’re going to:

  1. Start by grabbing a section of hair and wrapping the top part of it away from the barrel. 
  2. Hold it there for a few seconds
  3. Proceed to curl the remaining hair towards you. We curl one part of our hair away from our face and the other towards it because, in doing so, it creates that natural and multi-dimensional curl. 
  4. Once you’ve heated and set the curl, leave it in your hand for a second to let it set before letting it go.

Classic curls

The Classic Curl is by far among the easiest to do, which makes it a popular choice for many ladies looking for a style that’s a quick one-and-done. 

  1. First, take a section of your hair and wrap it around the barrel. Make sure it’s flat when you do this and that there are no gaps between your hair and the barrel. Think of it as if you’re trying to mimic a ribbon.
  2. Try hold your hair there for at least 10 to 15 seconds before releasing it. This will give you a classic curl. 
  3. Repeat the process as many times as you’d like to get the desired result.

Tight curls

Now, to the tight curl. As you can imagine, the tight curl is designed to create a smaller barrel, giving you a tighter-looking curl. To get this right, you have to work with smaller sections of hair, meaning the process might take a little longer. 

  1. Start by partitioning your hair into small sections. For those with long hair, you can curl more at a time.
  2. Curl the top ends first, then release it and curl the bottom. While this might take longer, it’s worth the wait! You might want to use a decent hair curler to get this curl done well. GHD Hair Curlers are well-suited to the task; maybe consider giving them a try.

Twisted curls

For those who have a habit of twisting their hair and rather enjoy the look, this one’s for you. The twist curl is one style that is actually relatively easy to do. Just:  

  1. Grab a small section and twist it away from your face. 
  2. While twisting, wrap the strand around the curling wand or iron and make sure it’s curled tightly around the barrel. 
  3. Finally, after a few seconds, release the curl into your hand and give it some time to rest. The result? You’ll get a sort of wavy curl that will last longer than when you’re just twisting sections with your fingers.

Quick Guide to Curling Your Hair

We all know how busy life can get! So busy that sometimes we don’t even have time to do our hair well.Thankfully! Curling your hair actually doesn’t need to take that long at all! In fact, you can do it in 2 minutes.

The first thing you need to do is split your hair into sections. You only need to work on four sections here. Any curling wand would do the job. With the first section, wrap it around the barrel away from your face. Hold it for about 10 to 20 seconds on a lower heat, allow it to set and then release it slowly into your palm, allowing for it to set. 

Do the exact same for your second, third and form sections. The smaller the barrel you use, the tighter the curl will be. In the end, you’ll have a beautiful, simple curl that’s done in two minutes!

Final Thoughts

There’s so much you can do with your hair. Remember, practice makes perfect, so the more you practice these different curls, the easier they’ll become. Now, with this guide, and a good quality hair curler, we’d say you’re ready to go out in style. You go, curl!
