Step 1: Wash, condition, and dry hair Wash and condition your hair and dry it thoroughly. If you have curly or wavy hair, straighten it with a flat iron before crimping. Step 2: Protect hair Spray your hair with a heat protection mist to protect your hair shafts from the heat of the crimping iron. Tip Crimping irons can be purchased at any major grocery or beauty supply store. They are typically available in 1- or 2-inch widths. Step 3: Separate hair Separate your hair into 2-inch sections. Crimp all of your hair for a dramatic look or select a few pieces just to highlight your face. Step 4: Use crimping iron Heat the crimping iron according to the manufacturer's specifications. Crimp your hair sections from the roots to the ends, holding the iron closed for about 4 seconds at a time. Tip For a more natural look, crimp only the upper layer of hair, leaving the hair underneath straight. Step 5: Set hair Pull your hair back with an elastic band or hair pins to show off the crimping. Don't forget to use hairspray to set your look. Did You Know? The women of Ancient Rome used rudimentary curling irons to fashion their intricate hairstyles.
