Curling hair in humid weather can seem like an exercise in futility: Full and flouncy one moment, deflated and dejected the second you step out into the searing heat.

But don’t let the scorching climate cramp your style. Here’s how to beat the heat and stand head over shoulders above the morose manes of the majority, starting with what you shouldn’t do: Never swap your regular curling iron for a smaller one, because smaller curls won’t fall into the soft waves we’re gunning for here.

The reason why you should avoid smaller irons? The rigid ringlets from said curling irons tend to puff up like pasta over the course of the day. The regrettable result? Sad stringy strands that look like soggy Maggi mee. Not a good look, by any means. Instead, the trick to opt for a generously sized curler that requires you to wrap your hair around the barrel just twice.

Step-by-step pointers below:

Step 1. Remember to spritz on a good prepping spray over each section of hair before running it through the curler.

Step 2. Keeping the top of your head sleek and smooth, grab sections of hair at ear height and coil around a good curling iron; try

Step 3. Wait three seconds for each section to set – and I really do mean three seconds; anything more and you’ll lose the looseness we’re aiming for – then release the curls from the spirals and separate by running your fingers through them.

Step 4. Finish by blasting a shine-boosting setting spray over each section again. Run your fingers through the ends once more, and you’re done!
