3 Golden Rules for Curling Your Hair

3 Golden Rules for Curling Your Hair

Posted by Team John Paul Mitchell Systems on Jan 24th 2016

When it comes to curling your hair, you’ve probably got your styling routine down. But are you following these three golden rules for caring for your tresses while achieving your desired styles? We consulted hairstylist and Paul Mitchell® Education, Events and Show Manager Tally Jean Ross about the things many chicks overlook during their daily styling routine.

The Golden Rules for Curling Your Hair

RULE #1: Always use a heat protectant when styling your hair. Invest in Hot Off The Press®╌an award-winning thermal protection spray that boosts hair’s strength, fights frizz and provides flexible hold.

RULE #2: NEVER use a hot tool such as a curling iron or smoothing iron on damp or wet hair. Always start with clean, dry hair for best results.

RULE #3: Choose the right barrel for the style you’re after╌use a smaller barrel for tighter curls and a larger barrel for loose curls or waves. And remember to alternate your curl pattern (some curls forward, some curls backward) to create a natural looking style.

Now that you’re equipped with a hairstylist’s golden rules for curling your hair, it’s time to introduce another element of gold into your styling routine. Our NEW Express Gold Curl™ irons are now available and offer everything you need to get smooth, hydrated curls with incredible shine and staying power. And best of all the beautiful gold barrels do more than just look pretty╌they distribute heat evenly for consistent styling that lasts.

Find the new Express Gold Curl irons at your local Paul Mitchell® School or salon and keep these golden rules handy!
