1. When curling your hair with a curling iron, start from the middle, not the ends of your hair. Your curls will last way longer. This is the No. 1 trick for long-lasting waves.
2. Keep your brushes working optimally by giving them a good cleaning. After pulling out all of the hair, soak them in warm water with some shampoo.
3. Use a flat iron to tame your cowlick and get perfect side-swept bangs.
4. Fake a blowout by curling from the ends up using a large-barreled curling iron.
