These magical tools can do a lot more than just straighten your strands! From curls to color, check out 5 new hairstyles you can create with a flat iron.
For instant waves, section your dry hair into two-inch strands and braid each of them. Squeeze your flat iron down each braid, one at a time. After the sections cool, undo the braids and run your fingers through to separate the kinks into laid-back waves! Finish the style with a spritz of sea salt spray for beachy hold.
Big, Bouncy Curls
Once you master the flat iron technique, it's a way quicker method for making perfect curls. To create curls, clamp the iron at the top of about a two-inch section of hair, then twist the iron 90 degrees up or down and pull it through your hair. It's the same idea as curling a ribbon with scissors when you're wrapping a present!
After applying hair chalk, go over your strands with a flat iron to make the color super vibrant! This smooths out your cuticles, trapping the pretty pastel chalk inside so it looks like a real dye job.
Similar to curling your hair, you can use a flat iron to just add a little bit of movement to the bottom of your strands. Starting about three inches from the end of your hair, clamp the iron on small sections of hair, flip it up or down 90 degrees, and pull it gently through.
After blow drying your fringe in all different directions, use a straightener to get right up to your roots and straighten hair, while sweeping bangs to the side.
