How To: Curl Hair with a Flat Iron

This weekend, my bud Anne said to me, “I still haven’t figured out how to curl my hair with my flat iron!” So I ended up giving her an in-home tutorial. Later that weekend, I got to meet a fellow blogger Amber, who also requested that I do a tutorial on the blog on how I get my curls. Perfect blog post material, if I don’t say so myself.

There are endless amounts of tutorials on YouTube on how to do this (heck, YouTube is how I learned to do this), but I hope mine can speak to my readers and friends who make this blog a daily stop. If for any reason I didn’t leave you with enough information, by all means, get on YouTube and watch others’ tutorials.

Hope you find this useful!

How To: Curl Hair with a Flat Iron

I know you appreciated the fast forward bits and editing. I babble a lot, so I skimped it down for ya.

Do any of you curl your hair this way? What other things do you do?

Have a happy Thursday!

p.s. I’m NOT hosting Passing Notes tomorrow. Too much going on with the house! We close and move next week!! And I think it would be better to do this every other / every two weeks. If you already planned on it, feel free to post a note and I’ll be around to admire it. πŸ™‚

    My hair is naturally wavy, so I always use the flat iron to “fix” pieces. Love it!! I think it looks like a more natural curl than with a curling iron.

    Great video! With the current humidity, I can’t straighten my hair so I’ve been curling with the flat iron EVERY day. It’s actually pretty fun! πŸ™‚

    Stumbled upon you and I JUST curled my hair with my flat iron today! I do it a little differently than you do, but same results basically.

    I was getting nervous for your hair w/how long you’re able to hold it in the flat iron. Mine would have burned off w/the one I use, I think. haha

    Looked cute!

    I use hot rollers. I love them because I can just stick them in and then piddle around the house.

    Hello! New follower from Dallas! πŸ™‚ Thanks for posting this — I was trying to figure this out last week. Was scared to leave my hair in the flat iron too long and turn out like Meg on Little Women!

    Very neat! I had no idea I could curl with my CHI. I will have to try this!!! Yours looked great! My hair is VERY thick,so usually I just us hot rollers and it’s really curly,but big ones. It looks nothing like yours and that is what I would like for it too. πŸ™‚ Thank you!!
