Video Tutorial: Loose curls for short hair

It can be dang hard to get cute curls on short hair, but not with the right tools.

Most important is the right SIZE curling iron. For my not-quite-shoulder length hair I use a 1" iron. To decide what size curling iron is right for you to achieve the "boho look" you should be able to wrap your hair around the iron 2 times. If your hair is past the shoulders you will probably want to use an iron that is 1 1/4" to 1 1/2 inches.

You'll notice in the video that I can only wrap the bottom half of my hair around my iron one and a half times. That's okay because it's the bottom and just needs a slight wave.

A little trick I like to use is to twist the hair after I curl it. I feel like this does two things. First, by twisting it it kind of relaxes the curl to more of the bohemian wave instead of a ringlet. Second, it helps the curl cool down.

The rest is in the video. That's right my first video. Feel free to mock me let me know if you have any pointers for making a video tutorial. I laughed, stared, wondered...if I would actually share...

Also near the end you will hear strange grunts, stretches and a sigh. I refer to these odds sounds as "the old man". It's Broc (our boxer). You can't see him but you will probably hear him ;-)
