Hi! I am Robin Lee Harmon with Tangerine Dream Beauty Bar. Today, we are going over our looks for prom. We have just finished modifying the first look and we have combed that out. Now we are going to go into our third look, which is a down-style for curly hair. You need a comb, a curling iron and bobby pins. What you want to use is a nice curling iron. It could be an inch; it could be an inch and a half, barrel size. The product that we are going to use is a very strong gel being because Carla's hair is very straight. You can use a softer gel, if you already have a little bit of curl in your hair, but today we are going to use something very strong, just to make sure we lock that curl in. I would like to start in the front. You want to grab the section to be the same width as your curling iron. You don't want to have too thick of a section and it is not necessary to have too thin of a section either. You are going to spray it with your setting gel, comb it through and then you are going to start your first curl. Be careful as not to burn your fingers. Then once you have gotten that curl, I want to go ahead and pin it into place. What that does is it has time to cool off, which helps to lock the curl in as well. It is almost like using hot curlers. You put them in your hair when they are hot and they stay in there and they cool off. It is the same concept, except we are just doing with a curling iron. To know when an iron is ready, when your hair is ready, is where the clamp is, that's the hair you want to feel the heat. When you start feeling that come through, that's when your curl is ready. So we are working on our last piece of hair. We have continued everything, curling downward from the middle section to the sides, everything just curls down. So we are spraying our setting gel and then we will twirl that around our fingers. So from here what you want to do is let your hair cool off and that will set the curl. So now what we are going to do is take the curls down and you can start in the back. It is easier to take them down from the back because if you start at the top, those top hairs hang over these and get in the way. So just start from the bottom. Don't manipulate the curl too much at this time, just go ahead and just release them. So this is the curl that we have achieved from our curling iron set. Now what we are going to do is we are going to go into our final look, the styling process.
