The 5 Minute Curl Hack, That Literally Takes 5 Minutes & It Works!

This is the hack I’ve been searching for!

I’ve been wearing my hair longer for a few years now and have been desperate to achieve those beautiful, soft wavy, beach curls. I’ve scoured the internet and watched thousands of YouTube tutorials on how to achieve the look. 

But none of them worked till this one….

I clearly suck at trying to create curls with a straightener because I just landed up with a rats nest on the side of my head and the rest of my hair was still straight. I dunno, perhaps I’m just not double jointed in my arms enough to carry this technique off, but I simply couldn’t do it.

I also tried with my curling wand, but landed up burning my fingers! Then I found the hack to beat all curl hacks!

And it’s so ridiculously easy too!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A curling iron, any cheapie will do, extra tip, I removed the clamp off my curling wand and found it much easier to use.
  • Heat Spray
  • Hair Spray
  • Serum

Video Tutorial

I made a quick video while I was getting ready for work on Saturday to show you step by step how it’s done, check this out:

What do you think?

Easy right? Give it a go and let me know if it works for you too!

    great curls , but doesnt your long fringe drive you nuts? My hair is way to thick to curl so quickly but when I have the time and energy I will give your method a go.

      Nope, I love it!
      I always struggling with curling my hair because it was so thick, I think this is why the GHD doesn’t work, but if you view the original video and then mine, you’ll see it will work in your hair, just section your pony off in thinner pieces.

    Even if my hair was longer I am not sure my hair would let me do this. I have the worst hair. It just falls, doesnt matter what I do!
