Good morning, everyone! My favorite hair style to wear is curled, but I don't always have a ton of time to curl my hair everyday. When I saw this auto curler, I thought, yes! something that can save me time and get the job done. Basically, you need to really brush your hair out so its smooth and without any knots. After taking a one inch section of hair and pulling straight down on it, you place the hair into the roller, shut it, and let the roller curl your hair. It'll beep when the curl is finished. I do mine on the 12 second setting since my hair is thicker and never holds a curl very well. There was a bit of a learning curve for me with this. It definitely took me a few tries to get it just right. I used the auto curler on the left side of my hair in the photos above so you can see the difference. I found my hair looked more beachy waves than the curls I'm used to with my curling wand. I did like how there is a setting that will allow the curler to automatically switch the direction of the curl each time you use it for a more natural look.
