I only own a straightener and have always been confused about how I`m supposed to curl my hair with it! I have super straight hair and seriously want to have those beachy waves girls in SoCal have all the time. I tried curling it with a straightener similar to the way you use a curling iron and realized, that`s just not right! Luckily, I found this post on BuzzFeed that shows the CORRECT way to curl hair with a straightener.
Instead of looping all your hair through the straightener, place about 1 inch of hair in the straighter (like in the picture) and orient it vertically. Then pull the straightener through slowly to get your beachy waves that last all day! The faster you pull through, the looser the waves. The longer, the tighter the curls.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes! :)
