"My best tips when you curl your hair are to hold the curling iron vertical with grip at the front.. Curl the hair out and away from the face right to the tips. Always curl the front sections away from the face (unless you want to have a retro Hollywood vibe …)

Depending on the hair's texture, hold the hair between 7-12 seconds."

Curling hair close to the face and in the bangs can be difficult. What is important to think of here?
I usually brush through my hair and then divide into two sections before I curl it. Then I curl one side at a time. I curl both sides of the hair beside my face.

With extensions you can both create more volume and keep your curls. Are there any things that are important to remember?
There are many different ways to create a fantastic look with extensions. I usually use a Clip-on set and attach the clips before styling, that seems to be the easiest.

For those who think it's difficult to look after such thick hair you can also curl your hair and extensions before attaching. It's important to remember to curl your hair and the extensions in the same direction. Unless you want to have a more messy look, in which case you can curl in opposite directions.


What are your best tips for caring for naturally curly hair?
My best tips for caring, protecting and styling curls is to use the right products. I love Rapunzel's Leave-in Cream which takes away frizz. With that product I get perfect curls and protection.
