The section in front , first comb it and hold it straight in your hand , then spray some strong hold hair spray and put the curling barrel in and curl it back ways, remove the curler slowly , holding the curled bunch and immediately clip it with a holding clip, so that it doesn’t slide down.
Next do the pony tail in the same fashion, make two sections of it or three if your hair is thick and taking one by one the sections , comb, spray , curl and clip . After all the hard work when the curls are standing on your head one by one arranged vertically clipped, then cool it off with a cooling blow dryer or if you don’t have a cooling button in your blow dryer then just wait for 10 minutes to let the spray set in and the hair to cool down.

Now hold the blow dryer downwards vertically towards the comb and comb in with a fine comb the hairs left on all sides that are not clipped to the top. While you go down your hair sections combing and blowing them, end the combing process towards the ends in an inward curl. Repeat the process for each small section for 4 times. And then after you’re done here, now leave the top clipped section and repeat the blow drying process to them also. Else you may unclip the upper section and immediately flip the hair in front of your face, and start combing them outwards with your comb and blow drying them at the same time. Now set them backwards, spray some strong hold hair spray to maintain the volume for a longer time and you’ll see how your hair volume has increased instantly.
