Start curling your hair out and away from your face, all the way up to the roots. Hold your iron for about 7-12 seconds before letting go, but this will vary depending on the texture of your hair. If you have a thick hair make sure you are holding it long enough and carefully lowering your iron down for about 1-2 inches from the ends.
