Not blessed with curly hair? Life as MOM contributor Rena shares some tips on how to curl your hair in 5 minutes.
Now this post will seem silly to all you curly-haired ladies out there, but learning this little trick has revolutionized my morning routine. I love how I look with curly hair, but it always takes forever. Well not anymore! Here is how you can be date/work ready in only 5 minutes!
Step 1-Pull all your hair onto the top of your head and secure it with a ponytail holder. Make sure not to put the elastic too tight to avoid making a crease in your hair.
Step 2-Start to curl sections of your hair with a clipless curling iron on full heat. If you don’t have a clipless curling iron, use a regular curling iron and wrap the hair around the barrel, keeping the clip down. Hold the hair there for forty-five seconds to a minute.
Step 3-Continue curling sections of your hair. This will depend on the thickness of your hair. I would suggest separating your hair into four to six sections. I have pretty thick hair, so I separate mine into six sections.
Step 4-Once hair is completely curled, carefully take ponytail holder out. This sometimes works better when you go upside down and let your hair hang towards the floor.
Step 5-Run your fingers through your curls to make pretty waves and feel free to curl any leftover strays or top layers that you want a bit curlier. Give your hair a once-over with some hair spray to hold it and you’re out the door looking beautiful!
