Simple Hairstyles You can Achieve with a Flat Iron
Although not very complicated, the following hairstyles will help you achieve a beautiful look with minimum effort. All you will need is a good flat iron that will take care of your hair and will make it look gorgeous without taking from its natural shine and bounce. Opt for a quality flat iron with ceramic or titanium plates so you will prevent heat damage to the hair and you are ready to start experiencing these hairstyles. Before choosing a certain item, analyze your hair type to discover the right material and the temperature range you need so you won’t ruin your hair while styling it.
Curly hair can immediately become straight hair thanks to the great flat iron that uses heat to tame the hair and change its shape. But straight hair can also become curly using the same flat iron. What you have to do is take a strain of hair, wrap it around your finger to create a loop and wrap it in aluminum foil. Take the piece of hair wrapped in foil and put it between the plates of the flat iron to allow the heat to shape it in bouncy curls the remove the foil and there you have, great and textured curls.
You can easily achieve some loose curls using a flat iron regardless your hair length and you can either start from the roots or mid-length. Simply take the strain of hair between the plates, roll the strain of hair over the flat iron with the twist of your wrist, and slide the plates down the strain of hair. The result will be some loose curls that add volume and shape to your hair.
If you want more defined curls that add more texture to your hair, you can use a great trick that implies your flat iron. Braid your hair in a few braids starting as close to the roots as possible so the curls will begin from the roots. Once you have braided your hair, press the flat iron onto each braid so the heat will penetrate the hair. When you will release your hair from the braids, you will achieve thick and firm curls.
For another version of soft and silky curls, gather a strain of hair and twist it from top to bottom then take the flat iron and glide it over the hair several times so the heat will penetrate the entire strain. Once you are done, release the strain and apply some hair spray to fix the curls into position.Posted on: October 3, 2015Amelia Johnson
