Hair Curling Tutorial

During the summer, I love large, beachy curls, but I don't like a process that takes forever to get them. Before curling, I shampoo and condition with Biolage's Keratindose line, then, run It's a 10 Miracle Oil plus Keratin through my strands before drying my hair with a large round brush.
 For this look, I use the Hot Tools 2 inch barrel curling iron, Oscar Blandi Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray, Oscar Blandi Texture & Volume Spray and Kenra Volume 25 Spray.
 I section off my hair from the temples up.
 After sectioning off, I divide the lower half of my hair in half again and starting in the back, I divide 1 inch sections and spray with the heat protectant.
 Starting toward the top of the section, I slowly twist the barrel away from my face. I keep twisting until the section is completely wrapped around the iron and hold for 10-15 seconds.
 I work my way through one side of my head in 1 inch sections and then move to the other half.
 I let the top section down and spray with heat protectant.
 I move from back to front again and keep curling smaller sections away from my face.
 If your bangs are long enough you can quickly curl them. If not, use a straightening iron or fix them as you normally do.
 Once you're done curling, rake your finger through to loosen the curls.
 After that, I go in with the texturizing & volume spray — working it all around and scrunching the ends to build the volume.
 The left side has the texturizing spray and the right doesn't yet. It makes a huugee difference.
 Once, I work the texturizing spray into my hair, I set with hairspray to keep everything in place. It usually takes me all of ten minutes to get from first curl to finished look, which is great timing for my thick hair.
If I want to add a little something extra, I'll slide in a headband.
