The flat iron is the go-to hair tool for many of us. Ideal for handling frizzy situations and when paired with the proper products, can give you pin straight locks even on the hottest summer days! What most girls don’t know is that with the right technique, your flat iron can give you bouncy curls as well! So ditch the curling iron, and follow the steps below to see how you can turn your flat iron into a one stop miracle tool!
- Start with straight hair & mist with your favorite hair spray.
- Section off hair. (You’ll want to start with the bottom layers and work your way up.)
- Take a piece of hair and starting up towards the root of hair, clamp down with your flat iron, and flip your wrist in towards the body. Slowly move your way down the length of your hair. (Try to make this a smooth process without stopping too long on one part of the hair to avoid those lines that flat irons sometimes give!)
- Finish with a bit of anti-frizz serum in the palm of your hand and rub gently through hair.
Voila! Fun, bouncy curls created with a flat iron!
