How to achieve salon-worthy hair by skipping the flat iron

While straightening your locks with a flat iron can yield fabulous results, the process can also damage your strands if done improperly. You can achieve salon worthy-styles and minimize the possibility of frying your hair by using a curling iron instead.

Essentially, these tiny particles will help shield your strands from humidity’s wrath.
If you want to give your flat iron a break, you’re in luck. The video below gives you step-by-step instructions on how to style your hair using a curling iron. As a result, your hair will be able to retain more volume and your curls will last longer. Get ready for the ultimate Botticelli mane.
