Starting with a small section of hair, clamp down your straightener wherever you want your curl to start. If you want a longer laster curl, go closer to the root.
Pull the straightener down the hair shaft as if you were going to straighten your hair as normal, stopping at where you want your curl to begin.
Pivot the straightener 180 degrees (a half-turn) away from your face and gently pull the straightener down straight through the rest of your hair. Repeat for each section of hair. Keep the ends of the curl slightly straight for beachy waves.

Air curlers use lower heat temperatures and if you use a thermal protector spray, you'll help keep your hair intact.
