Q
I have short hair that I want to wear curly, with defined spirals. Will using flexible curlers help me achieve the look I want? —Barbara

A
To achieve the look, shampoo and condition. Starting at the neckline, take square inch-wide sections of hair. Apply setting lotion or mousse to each section. Starting at the end of the section, position an end paper (this makes it easier to control the hair and keeps the ends smooth), then place the end of the flexible curler. Begin wrapping the hair around the curler in a spiral fashion until you run out of hair. Bend the curler to secure and continue working up to the hairline. When the entire head is complete, sit under the dryer for approximately 45 minutes or let air-dry. Remove curlers, apply a small amount of a hair glosser and use fingers to split curls and arrange hair into the desired shape.
