Hi Kate! My hair is super long and thick. my arms are ready to fall off after curling my whole head with a curling iron! Have you ever achieved this style using curlers? Are there any brands & tips for using curlers that you have?
Thanks! Amanda

Hi, I'm Kate says · 08.24.11

Amanda: I haven’t ever done this with curlers but here is what I think you could do to get this look: put your hair up is curlers, then when you take them out, flat iron the ends a little bit to smooth them out so they aren’t as curly. Or you could even leave the ends out of the curlers to begin with. Hope that helps! Let me know how it goes!

Hi Kate! Everytime I use a curling iron, I have that horrid indentation from the iron. How do I avoid this?? It is what keeps me from curling my long hair. When I put the section in between the clip and the iron, it always comes out with that horrid indent.

You’re turning the curling iron the wrong way. When you clamp it band then twist it try twisting your iron the other way. (Around the barrel)

Your blog makes me swoon…literally. I think I yelped in delight when I stumbled across your hair tutorials 🙂

2 questions for you:
1. What curling iron do you use?
2. Any tips for blow-drying your hair? I feel like that’s where the first signs of *magic* occur to see if you’re destined to have a good hair day (or not)!

Thanks!

Hi, I'm Kate says · 08.25.11

Megan: I use a 1 inch Hot Tools Curling Iron. They are the best! And I blow dry upside down! I’ll have tip and tricks for that coming very soon!
Thanks for following!

Blow drying upside does give volume, but it makes you hair less shinny because you are raising the cuticle of your hair instead of smoothing it down, i would suggest to use a root lifting spay. Then “set” your roots with a blast of cold air from the dryer. Just a tip from an AVEDA stylist 🙂

Reply
Kate says · 09.28.12

If you blow dry in the direction of hair growth, though, it will be the same as blow drying right side up! I always recommend that–but thanks for the tip!

Lori says · 08.28.11

Loved the video and you are just adorble. My problem has always been that my curls just don’t last. My hair looks great after I’ve curled and styled it, but a few hours later I do a hair check and they’ve fallen. Fastforward a couple hours after that, and my hair is just slightly wavy or almost completely straight. I have fine hair texture, but a lot of hair on my head. My hair is cut by a pro in long layers with bangs similar to yours. I’d love your advice!

Reply
Emily says · 08.30.11

Kate what size curling iron do you use? my 1 inch curling iron just died and I’m trying to decide what to get. I have fine hair, color treated, maybe 2 inches longer than yours. I’m loving the loose waive look but had trouble achieving it with my 1 inch iron (always ended up too ringlety). Would you suggest getting a bigger iron? or am I doing something wrong with the 1 inch?

I love your videos! Such great advice! Thanks for your help!

Emily: I use a 1 inch Hot Tools Curling Iron. It’s wonderful! Try the 1 1/2 inch, though, if your curls are too tight. and maybe turn the heat setting down to medium. Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for posting these tutorials. I cut a lot of hair off in January and got a bad haircut, so I had to go get it cut WAY shorter than I was going for. It’s finally growing and looks very much like your cut. I’ve never had trouble with my hair, but since it’s been growing I’ve absolutely hated it! I just couldn’t seem to fix it any way that I loved it. I watched your flat iron video this morning and tried it. It was easy and I got SO many compliments. Your tutorials are going to make this growing out process so much more bearable. I cannot thank you enough!

I just love the way you styled your hair in this video. I purchased a 1 1/4 hot tools iron this weekend, and my hair is to my shoulders. No matter how many times I’ve tried, I keep getting a huge crease in each section I attempt to curl. I think it’s from the clamp. Do you have any suggestions? I really want to learn how to do this! Thanks for any help you can send my way 🙂

Reply

I used to have this same problem- I figured out after watching Kate’s tutorial that I have been wrapping the curling iron the wrong way meaning instead of having the clamp on top and rotating the iron away from the face I would curl the hair towards the face. Basically I think I was in a sense going “against the grain” of the hair leading to the crease. Hope this helps- it made a huge difference in the ease and overall look of my curls 🙂

AshleySP says · 10.23.11

Is there any way you can post a more “detailed” tutorial about how to wrap hair around a curling iron? I have watched this tutorial at least 15 times now (don’t get me wrong, they are great!) and every time I practice this, I end up with creases, can’t tell if your ends should be inside the iron clamp and my curls are limp and only a little curly at the bottom. They definitely do not look like your stiff curls in the photos. I have tried hairspray and it hasn’t really helped much – it looks more like prom hair. I am hoping it will get better since I am pretty hair incompetent but this is stumping me.

Reply
mommyofboyzz says · 02.06.12

I wonder if maybe you need more product in your hair (more than just hairspray) You need a little “oomph” in your hair so that it isn’t as soft – to get more stiff curls like Kate’s. Try a volumizing foam (I believe Kate uses Aquage) & pull it thru to ends.
As far as not getting the creases, you need to be a bit more smooth when letting the hair slide thru the clamp & barrel. Don’t let hair sit too long in one spot while sliding or you will get the creases. Hope this helps! 🙂

Hi, I'm Kate says · 10.23.11

AshleySP: I’m working on that. My hair doesn’t do very well with that technique so it is difficult to show that. But I’m trying!

Hi Kate- I got my haircut & colored last week (I’ve been wanting to ever since I found your blog about 3 weeks ago) I love it!!!! I’m wondering what size curling iron you’re using in this video? I bought a 1 in. Hot Tools & I love it – but I’m kind of wishing I would have gotten the 1 1/4 in. instead because my curls are tighter than I want them to be, but if I don’t leave the iron on them for at least 15-20 sec. they fall out mid-day.

Thanks – Love Love LOVE your blog! 🙂

Hi, I'm Kate says · 10.25.11

@Kristin: stick with the 1inch. Just rake through the curls a bit more than you would naturally to soften them a bit! 🙂

I just tried to follow your tutorial, but I am so clumsy with the curling iron! I normally use hot rollers as my hair is longer than yours and very fine. A curling iron would be so much more convenient for traveling, though! Just a thought…maybe you could get a friend with long hair to sit for you in a new tutorial and show us “long-haired” people how to handle a curling iron!

Kelly says · 11.11.11

Please tell me why I always seem to get a kink at the end of my hair? It doesn’t matter if I leave a bit out at the end like you said to or if I do the whole strand I still get a kink. How do I prevent this from happening? I have longer hair if that makes a difference it’s to the middle of my back

Reply
mommyofboyzz says · 02.06.12

@Kelly~
make sure you always wrap your hair around the barrel before you wrap over the clamp. Never clamp the hair and go back over the clamp before wrapping around the barrel – you will always get a kink in your hair (bc you’re bending it). Not sure if this is what is happening, but wanted to offer that info in case it was 😉 good luck!

I used an uplifting foam on my roots before blowdrying, but my hair just didn’t look right. I ended up teasing it at the crown and pulling it half back. Any suggestions? Could it be that I am not using the same kind of curing iron you are using?

Question-I can’t find Aquage at the local salons near me, so one salon reccomended Biomega (same company that makes Aquage) and I bought the Up All Night volumizer. Do you have any experience using Up All Night? I figured it was close since it was the same company.

I have curly thin hair that straightens easily with a salon quality straighter. My curls are not uniform and the underneath section is a lot tighter than the top and doesn’t look good left curly very often. I love the look of looser curls you get with a curling iron. Would you recommend straightening my hair first and then curling with an iron or just blowing it out and curling it. I know without seeing my hair its harder to say but any advice would be great. Thanks

Hey! I love your blog! My hair is medium length and very thin. After blow drying and straightening everyday it was a wreck, especially at the ends. I used the shampoo, conditioner and spray you suggested and noticed a huge difference! Thank you!

I do have a question though, when I try to curl my hair it never stays. It just falls right out and by right out I mean as soon as it comes out of the curling iron or straightener. sometimes I can get a little curl at the end. What can I do to get some hold! I use a lot of mouse and tried spraying with hairspray as I went!

Someone told me to spray my hair with hairspray before I curl it is that a good idea? And also, should I use something in my hair before I blow dry it? I know that coloring your hair makes it have more texture but are there other products out there that can give me texture?

I love your tips and videos. My question is I have VERY thick and course, natural curly hair. I cannot just blow dry and curl because of the frizz and bumps/waves and the roots; however, if I straighten and then try to curl my hair, it just falls out. Please advise how I could achieve this look with starting with frizzy/wavy hair

So I tried this before work this AM and I LOVE it! Only problem, by 2pm, almost all of the curls are gone. Any tips/product to help? My hair is thick and stick straight, maybe about 1/2 inch longer than yours in the video.

Kate, PLEASE tell me….w/course naturally curly hair, what products would be best in this process..do I really need to blow dry w/aquage product or can I air dry then try this technique?? Also, what would be a good product to use for separation after curling considering the texture of my hair. I am excited to try this method to actually ‘reduce’ my uneven curls and get a more uniform appearance. I would really appreciate your comment. Thank you for your time. Pam

My hairdresser started selling Shielo’s Antioxidant Leave in Protectant spray a year ago and i decided to try it, though i was hesitant. I couldnt imagine that 1 product would actually do all that this one claimed to. I tried it for a week with no other styling products, and since that week i have been a believer! This product is amazing.

I have SUPER THICK curly hair that i blow dry straight and flat iron. The Shielo Antioxidant Spray leaves it feeling amazing. My hair is shiny, silky, soft and not damaged at all. I will not ever stop using this product. I have tried various styling products for years and have never had such amazing results. It really does do everything it claims. It’s also nice to only have to use 1 styling product as opposed to the 2,3, and sometimes even 4 that i was previously using.

Hi Kate,
Thank you SO much for your hair tutorials, they have literally changed my life! I have longer hair, but very straight and a lot of very fine hair. I bought all of the same products you use for the curling iron tutorial, aquage, kenra 25 and the hot tools curling iron. When I’m done it looks fabulous but my question is how can I keep the curl? Within a few hours it’s pretty much gone. If you could recommend anything I would really appreciate it. I just adore my new hair style and would love to have it last all day long!

The first time I tried this particular, curling-your-hair-with-the-curling-iron tutorial on my own hair, it was a disaster. Seriously. I looked like a hot mess! (Who knows went wrong?!) But I kept practicing… Yesterday, I realized I curled my own hair perfectly in about 15 minutes flat — all thanks to you. 🙂 Thanks again for your great tutorials!

Recently I’ve gotten my hair cut to about the same length as you have in this video (maybe a tad longer). I’ve been trying out some of your tutorials and I’m slowly learning to use a curling iron. Mostly I have always used a flat iron to do everything with my hair including curling. The main problem I’ve always had is that I’m not sure how to fix my hair once it’s curled. I can get the curls in but when I go to seperate the top and kinda move things around my curls immediately fall out. I am using the Aquage uplifting foam on my hair and it still doesn’t hold the style and give me great lift at the top. My hair is fairly thin, very straight, and has a silky texture. I’ve heard that I need more texture to my hair but I’m not sure how to get it. Any tips?

I have a question about this video… I tried this technique and I love the finished product, but unfortunately, after a couple of hours, the curl has fallen out to the point where only the bottom couple of inches are curled. I was wondering if you have any suggestions (technique? product?) for keeping that curl from falling out?

Hi Kate,

I know you don’t seem to answer comments on your blog post anymore, but I have to try! I tried this style this morning with my brand new Hot Tools curling iron and I completely failed!
* The curls don’t stay, almost as soon a I remove the curling iron
* I can’t seems to go near the head enough (altough I burned myself quite a lot), in the end, the curls start mid-hair, and every curl in the same form so it is just weird. Like an egg on top off my hair and then, the curls are starting at my ears and each and every one towards my scalp, it’s just wrong. –> My biggest problem!
* My hair is a little bit longer than my shoulders, and I can’t seems to turn the curling iron easily until all my hair is in it. At the end, my hair separates and I just can’t turn the curling iron anymore.

I so want to learn how to do this, I’m in love with your blog.

Hi Kate! You are so talented and I love your blog. I was curious as to how you would do this with thick wavy hair. I tried this technique a couple times but when I go to run my fingers through it, my curls do not get as defined as yours. I start with my hair wavy and try to curl it to make it smoother but my curls are not as pretty as yours. They sort of clump together. Also, I can’t get the volume you have. I have tried to dry my hair upside down but it gets huge! Any suggestions? Thanks for your help! You are a beautiful girl!

Hi Kate,
I love this look but i’m not sure my hair will do this. I used to have an a-line bob and it’s grown out..it’s at that funky stage where it sits on the back of my neck and flips out and my front just barely sits on my shoulders. i’ve got a pretty important night coming up so would you have any suggestions on what i could do with it?
thanks, angela.

Kate, I love you and everything you do with your hair. I’m excited to try your techniques!! I have medium-fine hair, soft as a baby’s. I was wondering what kind of cut you have. Layers? Also, do you have any shampoo and conditioner reccomendations? I hear all the time that all shampoos have the same ingrediants, so it doesn’t matter what kind I use.

Hi Kate. I came across your blog and want to thank you for all your great videos. I have one question. I would love to get your haircut. How can I describe to my stylist? I cut my bangs myself. Thanks!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! I am the owner of a residential cleaning company and clean 10-12 houses a week myself plus have four girls that clean for me as well. I work hard, see clients and want to look cute and trendy but still be functional for all that hard scrubbing! I always put my hair in a standard (boring) ponytail and now I have options!!! You have saved my style-challenged soul!

How do you decide what inch barrel to get for your iron? I have medium/long length hair that is straight and thick. It is just personal preference or what? Thanks for the help!

Hi, I love your blog. You have such great ideas, thanks for sharing. If you take requests, could you write a post for those of us who have stick-straight, curl-resistant hair. As a person who is super-ignorant when it comes to hair, I could benefit from a post that starts from the pre-basics, how to dry, what products to use and how. It’s so frustrating to spend 20 minutes curling my hair only to have the curls essentially gone in an hour. Thanks!

Is your hair naturally straight? Mine is and I have a hard time keeping my hair curled, so I was wondering if you had any tips on how to keep it curled. Thanks!

Thank you! This tutorial finally made me realize that I’m holding the curling iron the wrong way! Whenever I would curl my hair the left side of my had would come out great but my right side would come out terrible! It wouldn’t curl it would only kink and leave creases, but it was because I had the clip facing my back. Now I know that the clip has to be facing the front of me! I curled my hair today and it came out much better! You are amazing!

Thanks for putting this up! This helps a lot with curling. Well, there are multiple methods for gaining curl your hair – Pin curls, hot rollers, regular rollers, flexirods, curlformers, curling irons, sock curls.
Here are some natural styling methods you can try to gain natural curls-
• Try braiding your hair
• Create pin curls
• Try rag-curling your hair
• Pull your hair up in a bun

I’m 23 years old and I’ve never ever curled my hair with a curling iron. It took some serious patience but I was able to follow along with this video and I managed to curl my entire head of hair, and it looked good! Definitely a great video tutorial! Thanks so much for taking the time to teach all of us gals whom, for whatever reason, never learned to do it themselves!

I have wavy, very thick hair that is sort of layered due to having to get it thinned. I can put mousse in my hair and it is curly but not the kind of curly that I want. Do you have any recommendations for using a curling iron and also velcro rollers? thanks 😀

This is so informative- thanks! I recently cut my hair about this length after having a baby! It had been long all my life! So I’m trying to learn new styles! What size barrel do you use for this? Also, my hair is so fine and has no volume and doesn’t hold curl. What would you recommend? Thanks!

This is amazing! This blog has 100% helped me take my hair from “college athlete” to “young professional.” I tried this today on my hair and I actually got compliments on it!!
Do you know of any good products to fight frizz?? That’s my biggest problem… especially in rain or humidity! My hair is naturally curly so I feel like any time I “anger the beast” it just shoots up with frizz 🙁 Thanks!!!

How do you know what size curling iron is right for your hair? Does it go by length of hair or the size of the curl you prefer.

Hi, I want to try curling my hair because my friends told me that i will look good with it but i am afraid because it would be my first time curling my hair. It is good that i was able to find your blog because this is a good tip for first timers like me who want to curl their hair. I hope everything would turn out good after using the curling iron.
