  1. Prep the hair with OUAI Memory Mist Heat Protectant
  2. Create a deep center part 
  3. Start by curling the top layer of hair using a 1-inch marcel curling iron, holding each section of hair out 45 degrees while the iron is horizontal
  4. Open and close the clamp along the length of each section until completing the whole head
  5. If you have short hair, worry less about the bottom section and focus on the top parts
  6. Set the ridges with no-crease clips and let the waves cool for 10 minutes
  7. Apply OUAI Finishing Crème where it’s frizzy
