OK! This video has been a long time coming. Even before I wanted to blog, I thought about making it! I used to spend hours teaching all my clients and friends how to curl with a flat iron. This is by far my favorite way to curl for a number of reasons. First, my curls just last way longer. Ever since I became best friends with dry shampoo, I have been able to only wash my hair a couple times a week (the thought of it used to gross me out, but now I’m proud haha) think of all the time and damage I save my poor hair! Get this, I never redo my curls! With a flat iron they last me four days easy. When I curl my hair with a curling iron, I’m lucky to get two days. Disclaimer: I do sleep with my hair above my head, draped over my pillow if that makes sense. So, it doesn’t get smashed while I sleep, which probably helps!
Second, I can curl faster! I’m just going to be honest and tell you it will take a LOT of practice and probably be pretty frustrating to learn. It will click one day, though, and all of the sudden you will be a curling machine! I can usually do my whole head in less than ten minutes. That’s a win for me! Takes me 30-45 with a curling iron.
Third, I only have to bring one thing on trips with me! Ha ok, that’s mostly me being lazy. It is nice, though!
Fourth, it is customizable. If you want tighter curls, twist the iron more. If you want them looser, twist less. You can curl toward your face, away from your face, in your face, on top of your face….you get the idea 🙂 I used my iron for clients that just wanted loose waves, as well as my brides that wanted tight curls to last all day!
Fifth, I just like it.
I also really like the two products I use in the video! I honestly don’t think I could live without Smooth and Seal. I’m not even sure how it is so great, but it is! It’s basically a light spray that transforms your hair from dull to shiny, soft, and beautiful. It doesn’t have any hold to it, so it won’t help your curls stay in, but it will help your hair stay frizz free. It also won’t protect your hair against heat damage (I have some other magical products that will, though, so I’ll get to work on a post about that) Its awesome, I use it everyday no matter what I’m doing! The second product is my favorite hairspray. Its by Pravana and I love it because it doesn’t build up on my hair, but has great hold!
So! If you want to watch the tutorial, you can find it HERE
Let me know if you have any questions or if there is something you would like to see from me in the future!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Soooo beautiful!! Thanks for the wonderful instructions!! You’re amazing!!!
Thanks, you are the best!
Your hair is gorgeous!!! Can’t wait to try this out on mine although I’m pretty sure my curls will only stay for like 5 minutes since my hair is stick straight haha! Love the tutorial 🙂
Thanks babe! You have gorgeous hair as well! Go nice and slow with the iron then reshape the curl with your hand to let it cool and they should last longer. That’s the only way I can get mine to last!
what kind of no poo do you use. i’m looking for something to help in the hair department, and washing after working out everyday is making me a frizzy mess.
I use a dry shampoo on day three/four or after working out. I like sexy hair volumizing dry shampoo or my amazing blow dry secret dry shampoo. Using a leave in conditioner after you wash your hair will probably help with your frizz as well!
Thanks I loved the tutorial! I tried this with my 10 year old daughters hair. Looked great for about 30 minutes then fell flat and straight again. She has naturally blonde, straight hair that we can’t get to hold curl no matter how slow we go with the iron! Any products or other tips you can recommend? Thanks!!
Oh bummer! They do make products that you can spray on when the hair is wet but I haven’t found one I love. I’ll start working on it! Make sure you spray each piece with hairspray after you curl it. That helps mine stay in! I’ll let you know if I find something amazing!
