Curls are tight, springy coils that give hair body and bounce. They can be either natural or created with a curling iron, rollers, or perm. If your hair is naturally curly, you’re lucky it’s probably the most versatile hair type. But even if your locks are stick-straight, you can still create tight curls using a variety of styling techniques. There are several ways to get tight curls, depending on your hair type and the look you want to achieve. And those with naturally curly hair can enhance their tight curls by using a diffuser or curl-enhancing products.

Method 1: Using a Curling Iron

Start with clean, dry hair. If your hair is dirty or oily, the curls will not hold as well. You can also try using a bit of hairspray to help the curls hold.

Divide your hair into sections. This will make it easier to curl and will help the curls last longer.

Wrap a section of hair around the barrel of the curling iron, starting at the root.

Hold the curling iron in place for 10-15 seconds, or until the hair is heated through.

Release the hair and allow it to cool before moving on to the next section.

Repeat until all of your hair is curled.

Once you’re finished, you can use your fingers to style the curls or give them a light brushing.

Finish with a bit of hairspray to help the curls hold.

Method 2: Using Rollers Or Hot Rollers

Start with clean, dry hair. If your hair is dirty or oily, the curls will not hold as well. You can also try using a bit of hairspray to help the curls hold.
