Hair Clinic: Creating curls with a Hai elite rod
(go back to the Style Guide directory)
How do I create curls with the Hai Elite Rod?
"I just bought the Hai Elite Rod and want to create some curls, but there is no instruction booklet. Can you help?" - Kimberly
Here are some instructions on using the HAI elite Rod, I hope you find them helpful.
The HAI elite Rod makes it really easy to create curls. With other curling appliances and irons you roll the iron up around the section of your hair towards your hair horizontally. With the HAI elite Rodís unique design you can now create longer lasting curls by wrapping each section of hair around the Rod by holding the appliance vertically.
To create curls with the HAI elite Rod, simply take a small section of your hair (1" wide or less) and wrap the length of hair around the rod, do not let go of the end of your hair, and hold for 5 seconds. Then release the hair.
A smaller section of hair will create tighter curls.
A larger section of hair will create loose curls and waves.
For a more natural look try alternating the way you wrap your curls. Wrap one section over and around the Rod. Wrap the next section under and then around the Rod. This will give the free-flowing casual appearance natural curls have, by creating curls in a variety of directions.
You may also vary the sizes of the sections you style, some thick and some thinner to create curls of various sizes.
Enjoy your curly look!
