STEP 1: Start with completely dry hair and part it the way you like to wear it.
STEP 2: Starting from one side and working your way to the opposite side, wrap 2-inch sections of the outer layers of your hair around the closed barrel of a heated curling iron. Choose a curling iron with a barrel of 1.5 to 2.5 inches. Hold each curl for a few seconds, then slide out the barrel.
STEP 3: Use your fingers to gently break up the curls.
STEP 4: Finish with maximum-hold hair spray, applying an even coat all over your head. For fine hair, spray a second coat.
