Beginner’s Guide on How to Curl Your Hair with a Flat Iron

What do you use to Curl your hair?  A flat iron or hair straightener?  No of course not, you use a curling wand or curling iron right?  Wrong, I have been acustom to using my flat iron so much in the beauty shop that I actually now only use my curling iron for updos and wedding or prom hairstyles.  Believe it or not you get some amazing looking Curls from your flat iron.  Don’t believe me well then check out the super duper easy Hairstyle Hacks below on how to curl your hair with a flat iron.

 If you don’t have a flat iron yet, head over to my buyer’s guide on hair straighteners and have a look.  If you are short on time then I recommend you either pick up the HSI flat iron or the Babyliss Hair Straightener they are two of the best ones available and I own both!
