STEP 1: Apply a heat protectant and divide hair in half
Before putting heat to my hair I always apply a light heat protectant all over from roots to ends (we like REDKEN pillow proof primer). Next, use a clip to hold the top half of your hair up.
STEP 2: Grab a one-inch section of hair
With your right hand, grab a one-inch section of your hair on the left side of your head.
STEP 3: It's all about hand placement
Take the flat iron vertically in your left hand with your thumb facing out. (Note: make sure your left hand is on top of the right).
STEP 4: Let's do the twist
Then twist your left hand with the flat iron to the left in a half circle (away from your face). As you do this, bring your right hand with the hair towards your face and just thread the hair through the iron as you bring it to the ends. Continue to do this until you reach the back of the head.
STEP 5: Let's do the other side
When curling the right side, hold the flat iron in your right hand vertically from the top with the wand facing down. With your left hand hold a one-inch section of hair and as you start to curl bring your left hand with the hair towards your face. Continue until your entire bottom section is finished.
STEP 6: Bring down the top half
Repeat steps 2-5 on the top half of your hair and voila! Be sure to set with hairspray.
