NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 'Tis the season for creating fabulous waves and curls, and for most women, that means taking a curling iron in hand. Of all hairstyling tools, curling irons can be the trickiest, requiring a degree of skill not everyone possesses. To help ease the curling and waving process and produce on-trend beach waves, undone waves or glamorous curls, the hairstyling pros at Matrix reveal the top 10 curling iron mistakes on www.matrix.com.
Among the most important considerations, the pros reveal, is hair prep. A styling product selected for each particular hair type—such as a volumizing mousse like Style Link Volume Fixer for fine hair or a smoothing cream like Style Link Blowout Curvy Queen for thick or frizzy hair—should be applied to damp hair. Once hair is dry, Matrix pros recommend misting hair with a heat protection spray like Style Link Heat Buffer to shield strands from damage from direct contact with the iron.
Additional "don'ts" include improper tool and temperature selection and technique misfires like grabbing too much hair and failing to omit the ends of each section, which prevents users from achieving a modern, beach look.
Visit the complete list of the 10 curling iron mistakes to avoid from Matrix professional stylists.
