Start with damp hair -- not dripping wet. Either let your hair air dry or blow it dry while finger-styling it until it's about half dry.
Add a bit of texturizing cream to your hair to help it hold the curls. Spread the cream evenly through your hair.
Heat up your brush curling iron, if necessary. Some models blow air and don't need heating up. Other models have a barrel that you'll need to allow to heat up. Check the instruction manual for your iron for warm-up time. Set the heat to low if you have fine hair or to medium or high if you have thick or long hair.
Position the brush of the curling iron at the crown of your head and place a 1-inch section of hair over the brush barrel near the roots.
Move the curling iron down the the hair section, winding the hair around the barrel while you move it slowly. Stop moving the curling iron after winding the length of the hair section. Hold it for just a few seconds for fine hair or for about 10 seconds for thick hair.
Unwind your hair from the curling iron without pulling it and let the curl fall.
Use the same technique to dry and curl all your hair. Leave the curls as they fall until you finish curling your entire head of hair.
Finger-style the curls carefully and spray the curls lightly with hair spray. Check out the curls in the mirror -- gorgeous!
