Wrap a small metal round brush around a 1/2- to 1-inch section. The smaller the brush, the more curl you will achieve.
Step 2 of 4
Hold the blow dryer at an angle toward the brush, and gently spin the round brush in place until the section is dry. Make sure the ends are wrapped around the brush. Straight, short hair can be difficult to mold, but with enough heat you should be fine.
Step 3 of 4
Take the blow dryer away and allow the hair to cool around the brush for about 30 seconds. This will set the curl.
Step 4 of 4
Remove brush and continue until all the hair is dry.
