Video Alert! Make the Section Connection – How Thickness within a Section affects Curl Pattern

When working with curling irons, does the thickness within a section or the iron barrel determine the curl pattern? BOTH!” says, Sam Villa, co-founder of Sam Villa and Global Artistic Ambassador for Redken 5th Avenue. 

The beauty is, the size of the section can be manipulated to create many different types and sizes of curls, even if you use the same size barrel.” For the test, Villa used the same length section with a different width and a 1” barrel.

LARGE SECTION:
2” thick and 2” long vertical section – use a Sam Villa Artist Series 2-in-1 Marcel Curling Iron and Wand 1” and flat wrap hair around the wand – push hair up to keep it flat and wrap the base working out to ends. The ends have more wear and tear, so they will curl faster than the base will.  Starting with the base allows more time for it to heat up. Count to 10, release hair, and clip up so it cools.

SMALL SECTION:
1” thick and 2” long vertical section – use a Sam Villa Artist Series 2-in-1 Marcel Curling Iron and Wand 1” and flat wrap hair around the wand, moving hair to the base of the iron and wrapping all the way to the tip without overlapping hair to evenly distribution of heat. Count to 10, release hair, and clip up so it cools.

  • RESULT:
  • The thicker section created a larger curl with more space between the curves and less action, while the smaller section yielded a springy smaller curl with less space between curves.

So my friends, if you find yourself on set or behind the chair with only a 1” size barrel, varying the thickness of your section will allow you to still create many different size curls,” adds Villa.
