Then divide the hair into 2-5 sections, depending on the thickness of hair. Curl each section and try to pin the curl so it can cool back down. Wait 10-20 minutes before taking the curls out and releasing the pony. Voila! You have tons of bouncy curls that look like you took hours to get! This is the best way to curl long hair in a pinch.”
