How to curl hair with a flat iron (best curls ever).. repinning this because it actually works.. even for hair dummies like me haha.

Before you start this technique works best when done with a 1-inch flat iron. I use this one, if you're curious. This style can be done on any hair type, dried naturally or with a blow dryer.

  • Step 1: Divide hair and take a .5 to 1-inch strand to style.
  • Step 2: Clamp hair in the flat iron as if straightening it. Drag down piece of hair until you reach the point that you want the strand to start curling.
  • Step 3: While still clamped, take the flat iron and flip it 180ยบ at the point you want the curl to start.
  • Step 4: Continue to drag iron down strand of hair with the straightener still flipped all the way down the entire strand.

Tip 1: Once you flip the straightener, you might have to use your other hand to feed the rest of the strand through the flat iron to make sure it doesn't run off the heated plates.
Tip 2: The slower you drag the straightener down a strand, the tighter the curl will be.
Tip 3: Separate different sized strands for a more natural curled look.

Repeat on your whole head, and you'll be left with loose curls.
