Hello, my name is Mark Weiss, hair and makeup artist here in New York City. My client, I've had some customers, clients and friends ask me, I've heard about curling my hair with a rubber band. How would I do something like this? Well, the one thought that came to my mind, that I've done to quite a few clients,is actually section off into big sections. Twist and twist and twist and then, you secure it with a rubber band. So, I've already done one right here onto my model, Yana. But what you want to do is, to have big sections, otherwise it'll be very, very curly. The bigger the sections, the more wavy, kind of curly it will be. The smaller the section, the much more, more curly it's going to be. So, the first thing that you want to do, is you want to moisten the hair. I like to use a little bit of a pomade type thing. Which will really help with the hair frizzies and trying to keep it all together. And you're just going to very carefully put some in. Make sure that that is worked out from the root, all the way to the ends, especially towards the ends. Use a comb, make sure that all the hair knots and whatever tangles are out. I'm going to actually pinch the hair close to the scalp and I'm going to start twisting. And what I want to do is a good, tight twist, that it's actually going to start twisting upon itself. And what this will create, is really nice, beautiful curls that are also kind of a little bit wavy curly and depending on you know, the size of the section. What I like to do, is all different sizes, you know, all relatively around the same but yet a little bit different. Some are a little bit bigger, some area a little bit smaller. Because naturally curly hair does not have the exact same curl formation around the whole entire head. So, you just keep twisting and then, just putting that twisted, freshly twisted part to the bottom. So, it kind of makes a little knot looking type hair thing. And so that, once you get it all twisted, wrap your ends underneath. Then, you're going to use a rubber band to secure those ends at the bottom, so that it does not unravel. And here are two little, as I call, little knots. When these dry, you can sit underneath the dryer or you can keep in for a few hours. The smaller your sections, the quicker it's going to dry. The bigger, the more hair is in there, it's going to take a little bit longer to dry. I usually like to use a blow-dryer or a hood dryer that sits onto your counter, works perfectly, like 20, all dry. And when you release, it'll have a beautiful cascading waves or curls, whichever size, sections that you put in. Thank you very much. Mark Weiss from New York City, hair and makeup artist, see you soon.
