Though a flat iron is normally used for straightening the hair, I use it to get some gorgeous looks. Even though the plates on the iron don’t seem to be able to do anything beyond straightening, it is not so. You should own the right flat iron that can be used for both straightening and styling your hair.
If you’re a fan of curly hair, then using a right flat iron with round edges to get beautiful out-curls in your hair. I was always a fan of curly hair and wished to have the curly and messy bohemian look. I do this with a classic flat iron that heats up fast and gives strong curls to my otherwise straight hair. I begin with moisturizing my hair with a good hair spray and some water to get a perfect hold.
If you have a larger flat iron you can make longer curls. Keep in mind you have to practice before you can come up with elegant and great looking curls. I started with a small cool iron at first and I was able to get denser curls without burning my hair. Once I perfected the art, I am able to have great looking soft curls. I always end up with countless compliments for my hairstyle.
Another great hair style I always love to get is the beach waves. Beach waves is a great hairstyle for young girls who have medium to long hair. You need to have a good flat iron for creating the beach wave hair style. It needs patience since you have to do it slowly and steadily.
When doing beach wave hair style, I prefer to keep my hair slightly damp so that the hot iron do not damage the hair. I prefer a 1 inch flat iron as the perfect choice for creating a wavy effect in my routine sleek and flat hair. Keep in mind not to overheat your flat iron as you may end up with a damages mane. If you practice it for a few days, you can create great looking bouncy beach wave style hair using a flat iron in less than 5 minutes.
It is always better to go for a titanium flat iron as it provides quality heat supply and nice hold for making great hair. After reading some reviews on flat irons, I bought a flat iron with titanium and have been trying various styles on my hair. So, it’s your turn now to become a style icon among your bunch for friends.
