Glazed Curls For A Round Face – Step-By-Step Tutorial

Step1: Curling The Nape Section

Section out enough hair in the nape to shape the first row of curls and clip up the remaining locks, so that they do not get into the way, while your are working on your first curls. Curl the first outermost lock away from the face, holding the irons upside down. Curl the next lock the same way. Once you reach the approximate centre point, begin to curl the other side, away from the face towards the centre. As a result, we are getting the meeting point of the curls somewhere in the middle, and the curls tend to overlap.

Step 2: Curling The Crown Section

The next rows are curled according to the same principle. But before you start working on the crown section, you may want to add some lift at the roots with backcombing or volumizing root boost spray, if you haven’t previously done the casual styling procedure with a blow-dryer and a round brush.
