Small and Tight Curls with a Curling Wand

If you want more defined and tight curls, opting for the 3A style will guarantee a sultry and sophisticated vibe to your overall #OOTD. This hairstyle features big and looser S shapes that you can do with a 19MM curling wand such as the iKonic Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Wand.

Now that you have your styling wand ready, let’s get to the procedure of transforming your hair!

  1. The first step calls for a major blowout. Don’t know how to do it on your hair? All you have to do is blow-dry your hair, upside down. What does this method have to do with prepping for your hair? Simple. The method dries up from the roots for an instant volume.

  2. After a quick blowout, work by sectioning your hair and curling it to the style of loose wavy curls. After you have done it on your hair, prepare to section your wavy curls into smaller sections.

  3. Using your trusty 19MM curling wand, work on curling your hair from the nape up to the crown.

  4. Once you’re all finished, set your curls with a setting spray and let your curls do the talking!

Please take note that the Curly 3A style takes a long time to finish. But, with dedication and effort, you’ll reap the magnificent efforts of this extravagant and dramatic hairstyle.

Big and Loose Curls with a Curling Wand

Another dramatic yet carefree-looking curly hairstyle, perfect for date nights and office events is the big and loose curls. Unlike the first curly hairstyle, this one features bigger loops that will help in defining your face. For this hairstyle, you can either choose the 19MM or 25MM curling wand. The 19MM curling wand is ideal for women who have fine  hair. The 25 mm wand works best for thick and long hair. 

Here’s how you transform your hair into big and loose curls! 

  1. For your hair length, choose a curling wand with a barrel that accommodates it. Be wary of choosing a short barrel as you won’t reach every portion of your hair with it.

  2. It’s always recommended that you wash and condition your hair as a preparation. Then, as you air dry it, don’t forget to put on a coat of heat protector.

  3. Section your hair and work your way from the nape to the crown.

  4. When curling your hair, start with the back and wind it from the root to the tip. Then, hold it for two to three seconds and release.

  5. Repeat the process all over your hair and set it with a spray. 

When done right, your hair will speak volumes of extravagance and beauty! Just don’t forget to finish your hair with a serum for any stubborn or flyaway hair.
