Cutting foil

1. Cut

Start by cutting pieces of aluminum foil that are approximately the size of a standard sheet of paper.

You'll need enough strips to curl all of your hair.

Folding foil

2. Fold

Take each foil strip and fold it repeatedly until it forms one long, narrow strip.

This folded strip will be the tool you use to create the curls in your hair.

3. Section and wrap

Divide your hair into manageable sections. Take one section, place it in the center of the foil strip, and wrap the hair around the foil.

Once wrapped, fold the ends of the foil over the hair to secure it in place. Repeat this process for all sections of your hair.

4. Leave overnight

Once all your hair is wrapped in foil, leave it overnight.

This allows the curls to set and ensures a natural and long-lasting wave.

Remove the tin foil when you wake up to let down your gorgeous curls.
