CURL SERIES: HOW TO PICK YOUR CURLING IRON BARREL SIZE

So excited to share with you the third and final video in my CURL SERIES!  One of the most common mistakes I see when it comes to curls is picking the wrong barrel size!  Most women are afraid of the small barrel because they think it will make the curl too tight but I love the texture it gives.  If you find that your curls don’t hold then go down a size!  I love the hot tools curling irons and in this video I use a 1.25 in, 1 in, and a 3/4 in. barrel!

We curled her hair the exact same way in this video for comparison purposes but if you want a more “undone” curl you could leave the ends out and alternate the curl pattern forward and back but always starting away from the face.  When using any heat tool you always want to use heat protection.  I absolutely LOVE that Living Proof Flex allows you to set the curl and provide heat protection in one product!
