Conquer Marcel Fears With Tips From Celeb Stylist Harry Josh

Conquer Marcel Fears With Tips From Celeb Stylist Harry Josh

Mastering the Marcel iron takes practice, so we turned to celeb stylist Harry Josh. He’s styled A-list celebs including Gisele, Rose Byrne, Amanda Seyfried and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, PLUS he designed a professional tool line, Harry Josh Pro Tools. We caught up with Harry at THE BTC SHOW in San Antonio—keep scrolling for all his tips!

 

 

Choose The Right Tool

If you’re still getting comfortable with a Marcel, try the Harry Josh 2-in-1 Ceramic Marcel Curling Iron. The Marcel clip is detachable, transforming it into a wand—and giving you another styling option until you’ve mastered the Marcel.

 

 

 

Practice Holding The Iron Open

The trick with a Marcel is working with one hand. Harry recommends holding the iron open with one hand—not even opening and closing it yet, just holding it open—to get a feel for how it works.

 

 

Still Nervous? Don’t Even Close It

You can create a beautiful wave pattern while holding the Marcel open—no need to close the clamp! Hold it open (remember, you’ve practiced holding it open, so this part is easy) and wind a section around the barrel. Because the iron has equal heat distribution, just two or three seconds will give you the wave you’re looking for.
