How to Curl a Pixie with a Flat Iron

How to Get the Look  

First off, start with clean hair. Shampoo and condition your hair and then towel dry it. Then apply a few squirts of Satin Nectar Nourishing Gloss to help smooth out any frizz. And then apply some Whip Volumizing Mousse to give your hair some body when you style it. You can either blow dry or air dry your hair before moving on to styling it.

Once your hair is dry, spray it with Rival Heat Shield to protect it from the heat of the flat iron. Then spray your hair with Salt & Sea Texturizing Spray to help the curl stay. Take your heated flat iron and slowly work in sections. Take a chunk of hair at a time and start at the top and clamp the flat iron onto the hair and twirl it down as you go. You want to use a circular turning motion going from top to bottom. Do the same thing all around your hair until you achieve the right look you want. If you want a stronger hold on your curl, then you can take a small amount of Posh Hair Polish and lightly put the product at the ends of your hair.

Once you’re done curling your hair, you can take your fingers and run them through your hair to get a loose curl look. Top the look off by using Hero Gentlemen’s Pomade and working the product through the ends of your hair. You don’t need a curling wand or any other fancy tools to curl your pixie! Use the hair straightener/flat iron you already have!
