Method:

  1. Blow dry your hair using the steps outlined in the blow dry hair tutorial

  4. Start with one of the sections in the back of your head and take it down
  5. Take a smaller section of hair and use hair clips to keep the rest away
  6. Using the wide-toothed comb, pull out a section of hair that is even smaller between one to two inches wide and only half an inch thick
  7. Comb hair from roots to ends using your rattail comb to get out any knots or kinks
  8. Option 1:
    1. Clamp your flat iron as close to your scalp as possible without burning yourself
    2. Slowly glide the flat iron down the length of the hair
    3. Repeat until the section is complete

    5. Repeat until all sections are complete
    6. Finish with a few spritz of shine spray (optional)
  9. Option 2:
    1. Clamp your flat iron as close to your roots as possible (take care not to burn yourself) and smooth away from the scalp about an inch, but do not go down the full length of the hair
    2. Using a Denman brush, begin to brush hair down an inch from scalp
    3. Place flat iron above brush
    4. Slowly glide both the brush and flat iron down the length of the hair through the ends
    5. Repeat until the section is complete
    6. Move to the next section in the back

    1. Part your hair where you expect to wear it using your rattail comb
    2. Starting at the part, begin brushing your hair in one direction using a brush
    3. Use your metal duck bill clips to keep your hair in place as you start wrapping your hair around your head like a big roller
    4. Once your hair is all wrapped up, place your silk or satin scarf over it
    5. Turn the scarf a half turn and remove your duckbill clips
