How To Curl Your Hair So it STAYS! Beginner Friendly!

12080 ratings | 513967 views
***Learn how to curl your hair so that it lasts all day! Even works for beginners!*** Wishing you knew an easy, fast way to curl your hair that looks awesome and stays all day? This hair tutorial is for you! Even beginners can do this! You just need an inexpensive curling iron (around 1 inch diameter) and hair spray (optional). This video is all about the technique of curling your hair from the TOP rather than the bottom. It's such a simple idea, but it's one that will really change how easy it is for you to curl your hair and make it STAY! ***This technique can also be modified to create different looks such as soft waves, tighter curls, etc. Just vary the barrel size, amount of hair in each curl, the amount of time you hold the curl, or how much hair you leave out at the bottom. Experiment to find the perfect look for you!*** Let me know in the comments what you think, and I'll do my best to answer any questions you have. And don't forget to subscribe to my channel! I'll be posting more videos soon. Twitter: katyallen Instagram: katyallen79 Tumblr: katyallen79

Great tutorial! First time I actually got my hair to look like that and it was pretty easy, so thank you. Your tutorial was easy to follow.

My hair is really frizzy so after every wash I need to straighten my hair and sometimes I curl them after straightening but the result is not good. My curl never stays even for an hour and if I use holding spray my hair feels so hard and rough texture. So seeing all this result I stopped curling my hair. Can you help me with some tips for my problem.

You're a great teacher!! I'm going to start following your channel to learn more. 😘🙏 other channels aren't so helpful for newbies
Thank you - one of my goals ... was to finally learn how to curl my own long hair rather than be dependent on a salon. This tutorial was terrific ! Thank you so very much for helping me achieve this goal that will enable me to begin swimming for exercise - my next goal!

You are adorable and so real. I love you made it for everyone. A lot of these tutorials tend to go high end when a lot of people cannot afford it. I look forward to more videos

This tutorial was so helpful! I tried it out with my wand instead so I didn’t rush out and buy a curling iron. I sectioned my hair the same way in the video and it cut my styling time in half! It also looks so much better. Like other videos, I would curl my bottom layers and work my way up and it didn’t always look great. So thankful that I stumbled on this video.

Karen D'Amour (1 month ago)
Wow. That was easy.
This was so helpful! I've always defaulted to ponytails but had been really wanting to learn how to do this beautiful curled hair-down look. It's gorgeous and you did a fantastic job on the demonstration. That's AMAZING it was your first YouTube video and another viewer was right when they said you look like Reese Witherspoon!

Hi, I have a question... First time curing my hair. What do you do when you are turing the curing iron and the hair gets to tight on the iron and you can't tune it anymore. How are you able to keep tuning the iron? Thxs.
Mimi 101 (1 month ago)
This is the best begginers video for curling your hair. You explained everything so clearly. Thank you☺

Do you curl every curl in the same direction ?
E S (2 months ago)
Will definitely try this because my hair has a hard time holding curls
dzlove (2 months ago)
I’m sure you get this a lot but you look like Reese Witherspoon. You also sound like her. I’m I the only one whose hair won’t curl? I don’t even have straight hair.
forevertruetome1 (2 months ago)
I have long thick straight hair. This method has always worked for me. I always curl at the “top” first, then the ends. The best method, hands down.
Katarina S. (2 months ago)
Thanks for the helpful tips. Do you use any mousse, gel, or heat protectant beforehand or just the hairspray? Also, about how long do you hold the curling iron in one place before sliding down to the next section? I know every iron is different, but roughly 10 seconds or so? I guess I could watch again and try counting each section that you do to get an average. Thanks again!

Melinda Kube (2 months ago)
I'm so glad I found this video. I'm 61 years old and have been curling my hair "the wrong way" all these years! My hair is thin and doesn't hold curl long unless it's sprayed with tons of hair spray, so thank you for this very informative video.

Jean Keats (2 months ago)
I agree with Natalie. BEST tutorial on how to use curling wand. This was your first video?! You did a smashing job!!! I'm keeping this on my bar!!! Thank you so very much for posting this video! By the way, your hair came out just beautiful. Actually it was so pretty before you even started!!!!

Wow! Thank you for such a wonderfully simple, detailed instruction. I especially appreciated the time-lapsed part where you show finishing the rest of your hair. This will be the very first time I've tried fashioning my hair in any way. One request, it would be very helpful for me to see what the back of your head/hair looks like, both while you do it and what it looks like when you've finished. I have a terrible cowlick that causes a river-like section of my scalp to show in the back. I'm hoping I may be able to use the curling iron to minimize or cover up the cowlick. Your video instruction is awesome!!

Oh my goodness! I am 38 and have never been able to curl my hair with a curling iron, until I watched your tutorial. My first try wasn’t perfect, but it looks leaps and bounds better than any other curling technique I’ve tried. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your method! It’s brilliant, and you are so sweet and beautiful! Have a wonderful day!

MyName IsNotHere (4 months ago)
I'm almost 30 years old and never learned how to curl my hair. I finally decided I want to really give it a shot, because I have in the past a couple of times but failed miserably since I didn't know what I was doing and had no patience. This tutorial is just fantastic. I'm at absolute-beginner level and you covered EVERYTHING. The little things especially help (how to hold it, to turn as you clamp, etc, etc). Thank you so much for this!
Alissa Teachout (4 months ago)
I thought I was doing a good job following your technique but at the end when I fluffed it out, I just have a big poof around the center of my head. Any ideas what I did wrong?

I know this is pretty much 2 years later, but I really appreciate this!! I am not a very girly girl, but lately I have been trying to improve my look. I couldn’t figure out how to curl my hair so it stayed. I have watched a lot of Facebook videos but all of them are advanced. This has been wonderful!! Thank you so much!!

Can you please come to m y house  and HELP me!!!  You make it look so easy and I have burns on my ears and hands! : (
Sheila (5 months ago)
You can get the exact same results by doing it horizontally rather than vertically & you get better results because then all the curl comes together! separate your hair from top to bottom because it seems like she's putting too much hair together & you can burn it!!
