While there are many ways to design a short bob wig, curling a short wig can seem tricky. Today we introduce a way that involves using a curling iron for hot styling, using some bob specific techniques to provide a lot of volume and texture for your short bob wig. This is very effective for short bob wigs that does not normally have hot set curls. If you choose to create curly short bob wigs, you will need to mess it up with your fingers and spray a puffing product on the roots to further strengthen the curls.
Spray thermal protection on short bob wig. This is an important first step as it will help you keep your short bob wig healthy and prevent heat damage. Spray it into fine strips and comb the whole product from root to tail. (If additional lifting is required, select a large number of heat protectors.) Divide the hair into the top and bottom and trim the top half. Divide the hair into two parts by creating a horizontal part between the tops of the ear. Use a crocodile clip or hair band to pull up the top and keep it fixed. You will start with the lower part of the curl, which will help keep the upper layer up and interfere with you.
Heat up a 1 inch (2.5 cm) curling iron. Select a curling iron with adjustable heating settings. Set your temperature to the lowest possible temperature to make the hair curl. Select a wand with 1 inch (2.5 cm) barrel and no clamps. Any smaller object produces tight small rings rather than elastic curls.
- Use a clip on a standard curling tongs may be difficult to manipulate short bob wig.
- For delicate fragile hair, may not need more than 200 degrees.
- Hair is thicker or healthier can withstand 300 degrees temperature.
- Experiment with different temperature settings until you find the temperature that best fits your bob wig type. In most cases, avoid over 400 degrees.
Wear heat-resistant gloves to prevent scalding of fingers. Slide the heat-resistant gloves for the heat-setting tool onto the hand to be used to manipulate the short bob wig. If you want to curl the right side, that will be your right hand, the left side is your left hand. If you are not used to using curling irons, choose gloves that can protect the whole hand. Hold the curling iron vertically, close to the side of the head. To curl the right side, hold the handle of the curling stick with your left hand (and vice versa). Hold the curling iron vertically, the handle is upward, and the barrel points down. Raise your arm and cross your head for the optimal angle.
Wrap a portion of your 1-inch hair around a curling iron, away from your face. Pick up an inch of hair from the bottom. Place the curling iron close to your head and wind it around the barrel with your gloved hand. Hold it in place for about 5 to 10 seconds before releasing the curling iron and moving it to another hair.
- When using a curling iron, be sure to Angle your short bob wig away from your face and not toward it.
- On the right, you will wind each strand clockwise around the curling iron. Then, on the left, wrap it counterclockwise around the curling iron.
Avoid wrapping the ends of each thread around the curling iron. Wrap each strand around the curling iron until it has about 1 1/2 to 1 1/4 inches (1.27 to 0.64 cm) of hair at the end. Stop. Keep it away from the curling iron, and you can pull it gently to keep the rest of your hair tightly around the curling iron. If the short bob wig has a blunt end or laminate, it can be highlighted by making the end flat. If you curl the ends of the curls, they may curl in different directions and look untidy, especially as the curls begin to relax throughout the day.
Finish curling the bottom strands, then move to the top half. Untie the hair from your crown and let it loose. Start curling the top section in a similar way so you can finish the curl. This is an easy way to help you curl your short bob wig, really hope it is useful for u!
