It's not easy using a curling iron. Clip or no clip, I always have trouble maneuvering my hair around the barrel without burning myself, and I'm never sure how long I should keep the hair wrapped around it.
Quick and easy curls using a curling wand! Curl each pigtail with the curling wand going away from your face. It will look like you spent a lot of time on your hair when you didn't and the best part is you don't have to spend forever sectioning off your hair!
