Golden rules for how to curl your client’s hair with Steampod 3.0…


Start by pinning back the top pieces so that the lower sections are more accessible. Underneath the ear and behind the temple is a good starting point when curling.


When using a Steampod steam styler on your client’s hair, make sure to keep the arrows on the tool always pointing towards the ends of the clients hair when you’re styling.


Before styling you can apply heat protection using Steampod Milk for fine to normal hair types or Smoothing Cream for thick hair types. Once this is applied to your client’s hair, fully blowdry before using Steampod 3.0 to style.


The Steampod Serum can be used on the lengths and ends to give your client’s hairstyle extra protection and a shiny-looking finish, without weighing their hair down.
