To curl your hair with a straightener, you should first brush the hair to remove any knuckles or knots. Then put in the plate and let it warm up. Take a 2.5 to 5 cm section of hair and pull it from your head. Then close the straightener clamps around the hair section, about 15 cm from the roots. Turn the plate 180 degrees in the direction you want to curl your hair. Wrap the end of the hair around the outside of the pliers in the same direction as you twisted it. Now lightly pull the pliers off your head. Carefully hold the clips together as you drive it all the way through the ends of the hair. Finally, repeat this process on any other part of your hair that you want to curl.
