I'd say she definitely uses a curling iron.

Depending on what products I'm using, my hair's mood, and my time, after I've scrunched well to otherwise get the curls started, I can get some of that effect by gently, loosely wrapping individual locks around my finger and releasing them without disturbing them, especially around the front and top, hanging upside down, before I start diffusing.

In other words, if the moon, stars and planets are all aligned just right, I might get some really good curls like that - sometimes . And all of this is after applying my product(s) immediately out of the shower on sopping wet hair then blotting with a Curlease, flour sack towel, or T-shirt.
