How can you curl your hair with a flat iron? This is a MAJOR question asked daily. Honestly I have always found it difficult to curl with a flat iron. I usually tell my readers to just invest in a $30 curling iron because it is so hard.
That being said, I just came across this video that may be the key to accomplishing soft beautiful flat iron curls. The stylist positions the flat iron vertically pointing downwards and uses it as a tong! He moves the iron down and twists the iron allowing your hair to gently roll through the plates. I have completely been doing it the wrong way!
So I decided to warm up my flat iron, which of course is right next to my laptop, and turn that baby on. Within 60 seconds, and literally for the first time, I curled my hair with a flat iron!!! Take a look at my picture.
The images are ok – but think what I could do with 5 minutes. Soft beautiful curls are awaiting you, finally! Watch this video immediately. He is using a GHD flat iron, my all time fav iron!
If you have a good skinny flat iron there’s lots of cool styles you can do. I love it cause I hate curling irons. My favorite is the beachy wave look with a flat iron.
I find that “pre-heating” the hair a little before doing the actual curling motion also tends to help thank you for the vid! I have to try that now
this is a very good strigthen iron
