    To get the look: First straighten your hair to have the best possible base to create curls.

    For best results, you'll want to apply hair oil to the middle and ends of your hair before you start straightening.

    Then, separate your hair into 1-inch sections, and using a 5/8" curling iron, start curling your hair in alternate directions.

    Once you've got a full head of curls, take the tip of your curls and tease the ends. It'll give you a fuller head of hair.
