You have always used your flat iron to get thick straight strands, but guess what, you can use it in 5different ways to get different looks. It's time to experiment new looks ladies, read on and try doing it yourself!
Crimp It UP
Crimping is one of the easiest things you can do with a flat iron-and the effect is subtle and current.
To create a crimp, start with straight locks, grab a one-inch section of your hair and position your flat iron at the root. Begin twisting your wrist back and forth, slowly, as you glide the iron all the way down to your ends. Repeat until all strands have been tended to.
Chalk Your HairYou can try the PINK tips so many celebrities have been spotted sporting, temporarily, by "chalking" your hair with soft chalk pastels (available at any art supply store). After running the chalk over your strands to saturate your tips with color , use your flat iron to seal in the "new" hue so it stays put all night.
Get the Waves
Get sexy, undone curls by starting with the flat iron near your scalp. Wrap a one-inch section around the flat iron plates as you simultaneously turn the flat iron away from your head (similar to how you would curl a ribbon with a scissor). Continue pulling the iron down the section of hair until you reach the ends. Repeat until your entire head is curled !
Texture usually comes with two-day-old hair, but now you can create this effect on freshly cleansed tresses.
First, mist dry hair with a salt spray, then loosely braid a few one-inch sections of hair around your face. Run your flat iron over the braids, then undo them to reveal that coveted roughed-up effect. Repeat these steps all over your head.
