Think straighteners only have one purpose? Think again, babygirls. Yup, they the ultimate tool to create super straight hair but they also double up as a great curling tool, too! Just take a look at our top three ways to curl your hair using hair straighteners below…

Okay when we say crimping, people often gasp in despair. Like, crimping? Really? But, crimping your hair doesn't mean you hair is going to end up a frizzy mess. Nuh uh, instead you can say hello to gorgeous beach babe waves and what's even better? This hairstyle can easily be achieved by using hair straighteners! All you need to do to achieve beach babe waves is start by braiding sections of your hair into three strand braids and tying them with small hair elastics. Then clamp your hair straighteners onto the braids and glide them along the braids, one by one. Once you have given each braid a glide with the hair straighteners, remove the hair elastics from the braids to release your effortless waves. Run your fingers your hair to separate your braids (do not brush your hair btw or the frizz will come out in force!) and spritz with hairspray for an effortless finish.


So you obviously know that here at Milk + Blush we love loose waves and the great news is that you don’t even need a curling wand or iron to create these effortless locks - you can curl your hair using hair straighteners. To achieve gorgeous loose waves, begin by applying a heat protector to your hair extensions and then clipping your hair into manageable sections. To curl the hair with straighteners, take one section of hair and mist with hairspray. Then, take your hair straighteners and clamp these about halfway down the hair, then twist the hair away from your face until you reach the ends of your tresses. The look of your curls will depend on how many times you twist your hair around the hair straighteners. For example, a few twists will give you a softer, more gentle curl, whilst twist your hair as many times as possible will leave you with a tighter curl.


Last but not least, the effortless dishevelled bed head look is one hairstyle which we all desire, yet somehow find it hard to master. However, did you know that messy bed hair can easily be replicated with hair straighteners? All you need to do is apply a heat protector to the hair and section with clips. Then, take one section of hair and clamp the hair irons as close to the root as possible. In an over and under motion, begin moving the hair straightener down the hair until you have reached the ends (so, pulling the hair away from your face with your hair iron and then bringing it in again, as if you're creating ripple effects.)  And there you have it! You should have dishevelled, effortlessly chic, always on trend bed head waves. There’s plenty of hairstyles you can create using your most loved styling tool, these are just a couple of ways you can curl your hair using hair straighteners for a flawless finish.
