My new flat iron
I don’t know about you, but my hair has always been pretty easy to manage. All I’ve ever needed to do is wash and blow dry for a nice, straight look. Many of my friends are jealous.
Yet like everyone else, the grass is always greener on the other side. To be honest, I always go towards a more curly or wavy look for any sort of fancy occasion. Creating curls easily and on the fly is always something I struggle with. For years I’ve been a curling iron girl and only save it for times when I know I have a good 30 minutes to spend on my hair. Most mornings I have about 5-10.
Irresistible Me is a company focused on all things hair: hair styling tools, hair accessories and clip-in extensions. For the past several years, I’ve known that you can create curls and waves with a flat iron. I never knew about people did it. I envisioned wrapping the hair around the straightener much like you do with a curling iron. How dangerous … yikes!
Thanks to youtube, however, I found a few tutorials about how to achieve some flat iron curls. Now that I’ve gotten the hang out it, I do it all the time. I find it even easier than curling with a curling iron. Let me go ahead and walk you through the process.
The before hair
All I did to my hair that morning was wash and blow dry it. No products other than obviously shampoo and conditioner had been used.
It really is so much simpler than you thought. You grab a strand of hair just like you’re straightening your hair. If you want to use a heat protector, that does not hurt. Here’s what I used for this session.
You simply start at the top of your strand, close to your head. Clamp down and turn your flat iron over or under. You can see here below how I’ve created that. Once you’ve got your turn, just run the hair on through! It takes so much less time than a curling iron!
My final look
My hair was so very long when these were shot! I got some amazing waves! However I think it can be difficult at times when you just have so much hair! Here’s the final look:
