I know what you’re all thinking: “That’s some fabulous, wavy hair… but mine could never look that good.” Ladies, I kid you not — I sat through this exact curling tutorial with Martha Lynn several months ago, and since then I’ve been curling and twirling with the best of ’em. All I needed was someone to show me how to properly use a curling iron, and after that practice made perfect! Feeling like you’re ready to give it a shot this weekend? We’ve broken it down for you step-by-step after the jump

  1. Section hair into a vertical section in front of the ear.
  2. Spray section with hair spray. Holding the curling iron clamp with your index finger (we prefer a 1.25-inch Hot Tools curling iron), clamp the section mid-shaft.
  3. Reach your opposite hand over to grab the rubber top of your iron, and immediately curl upward.
  4. Slightly loosen clamp grip on hair, and inch the curling iron downward. Then burl upward again. Repeat down the length of your hair section.
  5. Loosen clamp grip and release. Spray.
  6. Repeat steps 1 to 5 going around the head.
  7. Run fingers through your hair to break up the curls.
  8. Section hair into small sections around the crown.
  9. Wrap hair around the barrel of the curling iron (with clamp down). Repeat around the entire crown. Spray hair all over.
