1: Title: Prep Your Hair Start by washing and towel-drying your hair. Apply heat protectant and create a middle part for even curls.

2: Title: Choose the Right Tool Opt for a curling iron or wand based on your desired curl size. Remember, smaller barrels for tighter curls.

3: Title: Section Your Hair Divide your hair into small sections for easier curling. Clip away the top section and start from the bottom.

4: Title: Curl Away Wrap each section around the curling iron, away from your face. Hold for a few seconds, then release gently.

5: Title: Alternate Directions To achieve natural-looking curls, alternate curling towards and away from your face. Don't forget to leave the ends out.

6: Title: Cool and Set Once all your hair is curled, let it cool for a minute. Gently tousle and set with hairspray for lasting curls.

7: Title: Embrace Imperfection For a more effortless look, run your fingers through the curls and shake them out lightly. Loosen tight curls if desired.

8: Title: Finishing Touches Use a wide-tooth comb to blend the curls and add volume. Finish with a shine spray for a polished finish.

9: Title: Master the Technique Practice makes perfect! Experiment with different techniques and products to find what works best for your hair. Enjoy your salon-worthy curls at home!
