You may want to pre-heat your hair straighteners. I usually set mine to be on a high heat setting.
I am using my Toni & Guy straighteners.
Once your straighteners are hot enough, you need to split your hair into two parts. Then, twist one part of your hair so that it looks like this:
Remember, the tighter you twist your hair, the tighter the curls and waves will be.
Take your straighteners with your other hand, making sure that the twisted hair is held and kept tight at all times. Next, starting from the top of the 'twist', go down the hair just clenching the straightener together and holding it down for a few seconds per section.
(This was really hard to get a picture of)
This should be done using short presses of the straightener, not the 'pulling' motion used when straightening hair.
You should be left with your hair looking like this:
Carefully pull apart the twist of hair, and you should see a few defined curls, like this:
The whole procedure needs to be repeated on the other half of the hair. Then, I use a small amount of hairspray just to hold the curls. Sometimes I use a salt spray to make the look a bit more tousled. My favourite is the salt spray by Fudge Urban, as it does such a good job and smells like coconut!
