Don't Guess, Follow Instruction

Most people, when they approach a curling wand, take a stab at curling pieces of hair according to what feels natural to them. As a result? Curls are set from different directions, some pieces are curlier than's all a mess. The fact of the matter is, you'll find very quickly that curling your hair with a wand doesn't really feel natural at first. That's why instruction is incredibly important. It's not only an aesthetic “must”, but it's a safety “must”.

Guessing at how to appropriately use your curling wand could cause you to burn yourself, singe your hair, or style it in a way that's not what you're looking for. Try this: start by simply looking at the factory instructions and recommendations.
