Default Hair Help

Since you gals know it all, I thought I'd ask this question here. How in the heck do you curl your hair with a flat-iron? I know, I know, use a curling iron, but I had it curled once w/ a flat iron at a salon and I loooooved the loose waves that came out. And the answers I'm getting off the net aren't detailed enough. Can somebody help me, pretty please???

You kind of twist your wrist as you slide the hot iron over your hair. It doesn't curl it as much as it gives it a flip at the bottom. That's the only way I've seen it done.

The way I do it is ... when I get to where I want the curl, I stop the flat iron and turn the Iorn in the direction I want the curl... pretend it's a curling iron.

It always works for me, it may work of you too

Don't coil it too tightly, then it will look...rectangular...I've tried. SIGH. I had to re-straighten it. Haha. That's what happens when you only have a couple of cells upstairs.
