Have you ever wondered how your favorite movie star gets perfectly loose curls? The proper use of your thermal brush and curling iron is the secret. Here is how to get those big, beautiful curls that Hollywood loves (and you will, too). 

How to Get Wavy Curls

Before you invest in your new curling iron, make sure that you are getting the correct size for in the tool.

For loose, wavy curls, you want to look for a 1 1/4 inch or a 1 1/2 inch curling iron. The 1 1/4 inch is the most popular iron - it gives you that Hollywood mix between loose and curled that ends up looking naturally wavy - like you just stepped off the beach.

If you are looking for more volume for a special occasion, now is the time to break out the 1 ½ inch curling iron. This is a great time to break out the 1 1/2 inch curling iron.

You may also want to invest in a 1 1/2 inch curling iron if you are just looking for a bit of bend without going for a really curly or wavy look. This is also the perfect tool if you want to fake a blowout without actually going through the process!

Do Curling Irons Damage Your Hair?

Not if they are properly used. Make sure that you are not overheating your hair by keeping the iron on it for more than seven seconds. You should also make sure that your hair is completely dried out before using any heating tools on it, even a small thermal brush.
