Styling Sesh: Achieve flirty waves with a straightener

Updated: May 13


Would you love to learn how to curl your hair with a straightener to get those beautiful, bouncy locks that look like you’ve just stepped out of a salon? It might not sound right curling with a straightener, but it definitely has its advantages. Not only are you able to use one tool to style your hair straight as an arrow, but you can achieve loose flirty waves as well. Well, grab your straightener because we’re about to talk you through your first straightener curling session and tell you which steps to take.


Prep and Protect:

Those who are used to using protectant know its advantages already, and those who don’t allow us to share these bits that, it will obviously protect your hair from the heat, but will also give it some more shine. You’re also more than welcome to use a volumizing spray if you need that extra oomph in your roots.


Section Your Hair:

If you don’t section your hair off before you start styling your hair, you might as well not do it all. This means, no big chunks of hair because you’re going to risk styling your outside edges, and leaving the inside intact and ‘unstyled’. Take some extra time to do this, and you’ll see that lush curls are possible to make at home. Brush out any knots or tangles, and use an inch section of your hair at a time. Or if you’re a visual person, never take sections of hair that are wider than your straightener plates.


Twist:

Set your straightener at a temperature most desired for your hair. Girls with thick hair can work between 210-230°C, while girls with thin tresses can use a straightener between 180-200°C. Now, start off by clamping your hair a little less than halfway through. Twist your straightener away from the face and turn it 360 degrees so that the ends are away from your face. Gently pull the straightener down without applying too much pressure until you almost get to the ends, leave a little hair out so you don’t look too curled.


Twirl:

Now, twirl the piece of your hair to create the desired curl. Simply take your fingers and curl it away from the face. As we are aiming for looser, beachy waves, all you have to do is take bigger sections of your hair and turn your straightener 180 degrees away from your face, pulling it downwards at a medium speed. You don’t want to hold your straightener on your hair for too long if you’re looking for less defined curls/ flirty waves.

There you are, with sexy, flirtatious beachy waves with a single tool. You can finish it with a setting spray if you’re conscious about those curls. Letting them stay the way they are without spraying is another way for your curls to look more natural.


We’re sure you’ll love curling with a straightener because it’s like a multi-tool. You don’t have to change the sizes of the barrel, and you’ll still be able to achieve different types of curls! With a little practice, you’ll be curling and twirling in no time.


Watch this space for such multi-styling hacks.


Happy Styling!
