Easy Flat Iron Curls

Today I looked up on You Tube how to curl hair using a flat iron. I know what you are thinking, I am a hairstylist and should already know how to do this trick. Well the flat iron didn't become popular till way after I was out of hair school and for some reason or another I haven't updated my flat ironing skills. All that changed today after watching these videos (the last one u need to listen closely because she talks so soft).......











And here is how it turned out......

Simple & Sassy......Have fun trying it out for yourself :)

cute girl, some of the girls at work can do it, im not that great at it yet, but they do all their updos with it, but im faster with the curling iron

I know I am definatly faster at the old school Marcel, I guess we need to join the new generation of hairdresser lol! I think its something I will definatly learn to master even though I rarely ever do updos anymore! By the way I need you to highlight my hair, I miss your work girl :)

I love it! I have just recently (the last couple of weeks) started experimenting that way myself! And I have been doing hair for over a decade now! It also works really well to just throw in a couple of soft waves on little girls hair styles too! :) Without the pouf!

Your hair looks great. I'm definitely going to watch those videos. I use my flat iron all the time, without it I would look pretty scary. I never curl my hair because I am hopeless with curling irons, but maybe I'll give the flat iron curls a shot. I am sick of having flat, boring hair!

Hi April
a friend directed me to your blog... I am interested in purchasing a flat iron now- I want something good that will make my hair look natural - not split ends. what do you suggest & where am I best off buying it?
thanks
Rubi

Rubi I use a Chi iron, the Baby Bliss is also a greet iron. U can fond them at Ulta. Off coarse any type of heat u put on your hair can damage it, so be sure and use a heat protectent product before using the iron!

rubi said...

thanks... still got some questions.. fristly what is a good heat protectant...? and i dont see any of the items you told me to get ( chi or babybliss) on ulta, any other places? cheap ones please

April said...

I have used many different brands as far as heat protecters, a good cheap one is Friz-ezs (spell?) and you can get that at the grocery store. Cheap irons are a gamble I have had several clients spend tons of money on several cheap irons before finally caving in and buying a good iron. All I would tell u is to get a ceramic for sure! Hope that helps:)
