So grab your flat iron, a bottle of hairspray, and let's get down to business:
If you want bouncy curls
Step 1: Holding a 2-inch section of hair at the ends, place your flat iron a couple of inches from the roots horizontally and wrap the hair around the bottom plate, so that the ends are once again pointing downward.
Step 2: Gently close the plates, lightly holding the section of hair at the ends.
Step 3: Glide the iron down towards the ends, rotating the iron outward at the same time. Spritz with hairspray to finish. The result: A beautiful and bouncy curl that will last all day long. (Hint: For bigger curls, use larger sections of hair.)
If You Want Beachy Waves
Step 1: Holding a 2-inch section of hair at the ends, place your flat iron near the roots and gently close the plates, lightly holding the section at the ends.
Step 2: Turning your wrist away from you, flip the iron 180°and pull the iron straight up, rotating the iron outward. (Take your time with this motion and use two hands to rotate the iron if it’s easier.) Finish with a light spritz of hairspray. Once you're done, you'll be left with soft, loose waves that look effortlessly chic.
