How To Curl Hair With A Curling Wand

Unlike a traditional curling iron, a curling wand doesn’t have a clamp—which means no kinks or crimps ruining your perfect curls! If you’ve never used one, however, the technique is a bit different. 

Before you begin styling, apply a few spritzes of your favorite heat protectant like Redken Iron Shape 11 Thermal Holding Heat Protection Hairspray throughout your hair. Section your hair into 1 to 2-inch sections. Work in smaller sections if you want tighter curls and larger sections for beach waves. Hold your curling wand downward and wrap a section around the barrel, making sure to wrap the hair away from your face. After a few seconds, release your hair from the wand. Repeat this technique until you’ve curled your entire mane.
