How To Curl Your Hair With A Flat Iron And Get Loose, Shiny Waves

Easy peasy, right?

Fact: you don't need several different curling irons to achieve a curly hairstyle. With just a flat iron, hair oil and some texturizing spray, you can create beautiful, beachy waves.

When using a hair straightener to curl your hair, it is important to prep hair with a heat-protecting oil and work with one-inch sections at a time. Flipping the flat iron away from your face and alternating the direction of your curls helps to mimic a loose wave pattern.

Watch the video below for the full tutorial on how to curl your hair with a flat iron, including a tip that anyone with fine hair needs to know to maintain long-lasting curls.
