I have been getting quite a few comments about my hair and what I’m doing differently. Obviously, I’m adding some curls to it but many of you have asked if I would share how I add the curls.
Truthfully, I was trying different ways and I wanted to wait until I figured it out myself. I started adding curls with my flat iron but then I purchased a curling wand and that has made it easier. Here is how to add soft curls to your hair.
This is a little different than how some people add curls but it’s what works best for me. I purchased my curling wand at TJ Maxx. It’s Zoe brand and I found the exact one on Amazon but it’s currently not available. I also use a comb and some tousled texturing mist from Monat.
I first tried to blow dry my hair and then add the curl. I clipped two-thirds of my hair up and curled that section and then curled the top section. That was too much curl for me! I felt like Shirley Temple. My hair curls easily and I wanted a softer look.
After I take my velcro rollers out, I take one section (I do fairly big sections because I don’t want a tight curl) and wrap the section around the iron, holding the bottom inch out, and leave for 10 seconds or so. Pull the iron out without touching or pulling the curls. Make sure you wrap your hair away from your face.
I don’t worry if I miss some sections or if some are curlier than others because it gives a messier look. I do this all the way around, about 5 sections. I spray with some hairspray and let it cool. Then, I turn my head upside down and shake the curls and run my fingers through them.
I play with it a little until I get it the way I want it and that. is. it ( I do spray it with some hairspray when I’m finished)! There really is no wrong or right way, it’s what works best for you. I highly recommend getting a wand and trying it out! They have gloves to use with the wand if you want to use it because you can burn your hand if you’re not careful.
Here are some of the curling wands I found with great reviews. They are at different price points.
I hope this post is helpful to you! Feel free to leave any questions in the comments and I’ll answer them there.

Beauty for the Heart~~I am sharing a different Beatitude with you each day (Matthew 5:1-12). Today it’s Matthew 5:4, God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
To mourn doesn’t mean to be miserable; it means rather to display a broken heart because of the evil in the world and long for someone who will deliver us from it.
Our reward for brokenness is we will be comforted. In the midst of our despair we have the ONE who can comfort us.
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
Have a blessed day!
