1 inch vs 1 and 1/4 inch

Often times people ask me if there is really a difference in curling iron sizes, even if you are only going up a 1/4 of an inch. There is a BIG difference in the way your hair looks after it is curled with just a 1/4 inch difference in curling irons. I am going to show you what the curls look like from a 1 inch and a 1 and a 1/4 inch curling iron because those are my two favourite sizes.

First I always straighten my ends before I curl because I like the look of softer curls.

Next I spray my hair with Bumble and Bumble “Does it all” hairspray, which is a working spray so you can curl over it very easily without it getting crunchy. (Once I have curled it all I spray it again with Spray de Mode for more hold)

I start at the top of my hair strand and work my way down, and I always leave about an inch out of the bottom to keep it looking messier.
