Curl Your Hair With a Pencil

There’s a new hair curling trend going viral and we tried it and loved it.

If you don’t have a curling iron or have one, but are bored of the curls it gives you, all you need to try out this hair trend is a flat iron and a pencil. The result is fabulous, wavy curls which bounce from your head rather than fall flat.

To start, separate your hair into strands. Using a wooden pencil, wrap your hair around the pencil. If you have short hair and struggle with curling irons, this technique will allow you to fit more of your hair in each curl.

To secure the curls in place, press your flat iron over the hair you’re curling. When you remove the pencil, tight and picture perfect curls will will unfurl.
