    Brush your hair to remove any knots then spritz your hair with heat protectant spray. This will protect your hair from heat-related damage.

    Select a ½-inch section of hair. Place the section of hair in between the iron's plates about 2 inches from your scalp. Clamp down on the hair.

  4. 4

    Flick your wrist back out and back toward yourself while keeping the iron clamped. The iron should be parallel to your hair or perpendicular to the floor.

  5. 5

    Slide the iron along the length of your hair until it reaches the tip. Slide it quickly to achieve waves. The slower your move, the tighter the curl will be. When your reach the tip, release the iron and allow the hair to fall freely.

  6. 6

    Spray the wave with hairspray to hold the style.

  7. 7

    Repeat Steps 3 to 6 for your entire head.
