How to curl hair with a curling wand

Curly Bob Hairstyle 1: Loose Curls

Start this hairstyle by taking a two-inch section of hair at one side of your head, at the front. Wrap that section around the curling wand from font to back, holding the wand away from your face. 


I'm using the "Trinity" Tourmaline 3-In-1 Curling Set by Duvolle, but you can use any curling wand for this.

Now, take another two-inch section right next to the first and wrap that around the curling wand in the opposite direction. Continue to take sections and wrap them in alternating directions until you’ve completed curling all of the hair on your head.

Once the curls have cooled, apply hairspray, and scrunch your hair.

Then just run your fingers through your hair to loosen the curls and add volume.

You can also add a simple headband. I love this embroidered headband - I think it really elevates the look.

Curly Bob Hairstyle 2: French Braid

Create a deep part on one side of your head and curl any random sections of hair that are looking messy.

Braiding hair

Take a small section of hair from the front on the side of the part and begin making a simple braid. 

Making a French braid

Add a few more sections of hair to the top part of the braid and then continue braiding until you reach the bottom.

Pin the braid to the back of your head, hiding the end of the braid under a section of hair.

Here's the look! I like that this hairstyle keeps my hair out of my face and has a cute braid detail.

Curly Bob Hairstyle 3: Top Knot

Take a large section of hair from the middle top of your head and pull it to the back. 

Smooth out any bumps and then loosen a few strands of hair from the front at each side. 

Twist the hair that you pulled to the back around it itself to create a messy bun and secure it in place with bobby pins.

To finish, use the curling wand to curl any messy strands of hair.

Use a comb to smooth out the section you pulled back, then twist the section at the back and push the whole section forward to get some lift. Once you have the height you like, pin the section of hair in place at the back with bobby pins.

Using an eyeshadow brush to lift the hair

To even out the pouffe, you can use an eyeshadow brush to lift the hair from inside the pouffe.
