Make people go gaga over your big, bouncy curls - without using a curling wand. Flexi rods allow you to get defined, voluminous curls without all the damage you get from a curling iron. Definition, frizz control, and volume with no heat?! What’s not to like about a flexi rod set? Once you have flexi rod set hair you can either leave it down or put it up in an updo. The possibilities are endless.


  • Flexi rods
  • Styling product
  • Boar brush
  • Hair ties or clips


  1. Section your hair into three equal horizontal sections and tie them up.
  2. Start with the bottom section and brush it out with the boar brush.
  3. Apply your styling product to the bottom section and split the bottom section into three vertical sections.
  4. Wrap each section around a separate flexi rod. You should have three flexi rods in the bottom section.
  5. Secure the flexi rod by wrapping it into a tight doughnut.
  6. Loosen the next section and repeat the same process.
  7. Leave them in to set for at least three hours or overnight; the longer the better. Do not take them out if your hair is not 100% dry or they will unravel and look loose and mushy.
  8. Gently take them out, shake your head, and voila! Sexy flexi curls!
