Which way do you curl your hair with a straightener?
If your hair is extremely curly, use your straightener first to smooth your hair, then go back and create your desired wave. “You can’t take hair that’s curly and go right into it, you have to straighten it first,” says Michelle, “especially if you want to have that modern look where the shape is disheveled and loose.”
How do you curl your hair with a straightener by yourself?
Pivot the straightener 180 degrees (a half-turn) away from your face and gently pull down straight through the rest of your hair. Repeat for each section of hair. Once you’ve curled your entire hair, use your fingers to massage the roots, which will help break up the curls and give you that beachy, undone look.
Why can’t I curl my hair with a straightener?
Make sure to start with completely clean and dry hair. Wet hair won’t curl at all and damp hair won’t curl as well.

Dirty hair also won’t hold its shape very well, so make sure you’ve washed it in the past 24 hours.
