It is necessary to start with well cleaned and dry hair. Ensure your hair has been washed at least within past 24 hrs and properly dried. This is because the more damp or wet your hair is the more difficult it will be to curl and dirty hair wont hold shape for long either.
NOTE: If you use a blow-dryer try to use a hair mousse. This would give your hair extra volume and make it look more full and thick as you curl and style.

Here you have 2 options:
1. You can apply heat protectant or thermal spray to create a protective barrier in between your hair and the flat iron to prevent your hair from burn. Spray over all your hair without combing.
2. If your using a TellGrade Hair Straightener, it comes with automatic protection for your hair with its hair massaging components.
For ease of handling, its best to part your hair into small individual sections. The thicker your hair, the more the sections you’ll have to make. So pick out the section you want to work on and tie the rest of your hair up into a bun on your head to get it out of the way.
There are two prominent methods to curl your hair with a flat iron, namely; Flicks and curls. The two methods are similar with only slight differences. The aim here is to try both and see which is best for you.
To get more pronounced curls, turn your hair straightener a full circle, rather than half. To get more ringlet type circular curl results, you have to rotate the iron with your clamped hair a full turn, turning your hair over with it in a loop. This is going further than the flicks and curls methods were you just rotated the flat iron hair straightener a half turn.
Remember, how much of a turn you make all depends on how you like your hair and the results your pursuing. Its best to test different cycles and see what works best for you.
Rotating your flat iron, in half or a full-rotation, creates a situation were you can turn your flat iron under and around or you have to go over and around. Any way you go is correct with the only impact, being the reverse or change in angle of your resulting curl or wave. You’ll have to choose which is best for you.
You might want to go old school flat waves. To achieve this, clamp your TellGrade flat iron straightener down on a section of hair and turn it up in a half turn. After this, clamp the next hair section with your flat iron and turn it down a half turn. This technique results in flat waves, similar to a finger wave.
NOTE: The difference between flat waves and curls is that for flat waves you clamp down on the entire length of hair but with curling, you curl at the top and then slowly drag your flat iron down as if curling a ribbon
In case your hair does not curl easily or it doesn’t hold a curl, you need to apply hairspray on your hair sections just before you start curling the section. Applying a little a hairspray just before curling will help your hair hold shape better.
The amount of hair in each section of hair depends on you, taking into consideration your type of hair, the style your trying to make and generally how much you can handle in one go conveniently.
It is best to play with above methods to see which is best for you. All the methods share the same underlining principle wherewith you turn your hair straightener over itself, and then gently and slowly slide it down your hair. Ensure you clamp your hair properly keeping it on the straightener plates, making sure its not too tight to allow for sliding the straightener along your hair and yet not to lightly to allow your hair fall out of the clamp
