How to Use a Marcel Curling Iron

Give your hair movement with a Marcel curling iron. This type of iron has a manual, instead of spring-loaded, clamp so it won't smash your hair. If you enjoy natural body and swing to your hair, the Marcel iron is for you.


Begin by opening the iron and placing your hair between the clip and the wand. Curl your hair away from your face, feeding the strands through as you twist down the section. If you are not used to a Marcel iron the perfect curl may take a few trys, so when you've curled your whole head go back and recurl any sections that have gone frizzy or flat. Finally, run your fingers though your hair and enjoy the natural bounce of your curls.
