How to curl pin-straight hair and make it last

We all enjoy changing up our look from time to time, but what's a straight-haired girl to do when her hair just doesn't want to hold a curl? Keep reading to find out!

Step 1: Prep your hair the day or night before you'd like to curl it by washing it and applying a curl cream like Waves Fatales Hollywood Waves by Tecni.Art and lightly blow dry hair. Braid hair (in pigtails or one braid) and go to sleep.

Step 2: The next morning, unbraid your hair. Turn on your curling iron to let it warm up and section off your hair. Spritz some hairspray onto the first part you'll be curling, wait a few seconds, and then curl. Spritz on more hairspray while the curls are still warm, and repeat the process on the rest of your head. Using hairspray twice is the trick to helping keep the curls stay intact all day long. If your hair is very fine, use a volume-building hairspray like Volume Architect by Tecni.Art to add some body to your mane.

Step 3: Once you've finished curling your hair, rub a bit of Siren Waves Hollywood Waves by L'Oréal Professionnel in your hands and gently run it over your locks to make them shiny, soft and frizz-free.

Step 4: Go out and show off your new hair, but just remember to keep your hands far away from your head – touching your curls too often might smooth them down!
