3 tips for creating the perfect curls

As a hair stylist, one of the most important parts of your job will be knowing how to create the looks that your clients want. Word of mouth and repeat customers will be the bedrock of your business, which all begin with how well you can service the hair.

Curls can be especially difficult to master, particularly if you are not used to styling your hair in that way. But as long as you follow a few simple instructions, you will be able to create the perfect curls for your client. It is much easier than you might even realize.

Here are a few tips to help you out:

  • Curl in sections: When you are curling a client’s hair, it is best to divide the hair into three sections — ear to ear, temple to temple and the top of the head. You should start with ear to ear first and move on to the other two sections, as this will give the curls texture and definition they would otherwise lack.
  • Have the right size iron: If you are looking to create romantic curls, which are looser and a bit more feminine, you should go for a curling iron that has a 1.5-inch barrel. This will give you the exact right look that you want to make for your clients.
  • Spray the hair all over: One of the most important things you can do is make sure that the hair has been properly covered with hairspray. This will help create a dirty and stylish texture, plus allow the hair to stay in place.
