The curling process will take more or less time depending on the size of the curling iron you choose
and the amount of hair you curl at one time. Even with very long hair, a 2-inch diameter barrel will make short work of creating the curls
desired. For our demonstration we used a ¾-inch barrel iron and the curling process took approximately 30 minutes.
So, continue curling the hair as described until both panels of hair have been curled, then lightly
mist the hair again with hairspray. Now we are ready to begin working with the hair at the top of the head.
By combing slices perpendicular to the hairline we form slices and curl them with the iron until the
top section has been curled, then back-comb the hair about an inch inside the hairline to add some height on top of the head, gather the
top section at the crown area and smooth the outer surface of the hair. Then, bind this top section at the crown using a snag-safe elastic
band. Lightly mist the top section with hairspray and gently pat the hair to smooth any fly-away strands.
The remaining styling is accomplished with the fingers. Insert your fingers into the mass of curls and
shake them out to fall across the shoulders. Use your fingers as well to separate and arrange the curls as you desire. When finished, you
have a very soft, romantic style suitable for virtually any situation.
