    Created with the innovative HAIelite ROD for large curls all over the head, then swept up in large roll curls, one on each side in the front,  and sweeping sections with matching rolls in the back. 

    Create soft curls all over the head.

    Start at the front hairline and work your way up to the top on both sides. Start close to the scalp with the larger end of the ROD and wrap the hair around the rod till you reach the ends, lay ends over the top of the hair to avoid burning fingertips.
