Curling with a Flat Iron

11
21
This tutorial is not for everyone. BUT, I recommend giving it a try when you have time and patience. It may end up being a great way for you to curl your hair, or it may be a complete disaster. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. 
With my texture and length, I prefer a curling iron. The reason why is because you can count on a consistent size curl around the barrel of the iron. If you pull a section through the flat iron at different speeds, you may get either a tighter or looser curl. And my hair curls easily–so the curling iron is my tool of choice! And you may notice, curling iron curls are not very different than flat iron curls. A flat iron can create a great curl on certain textures and lengths, so try it, but if it doesn’t work, stick with the curling iron.

I’m using a 1 inch Classic GHD flat iron. It’s my favorite. It’s smooth, heats up quickly, and much stronger than a Chi Flat Iron. If you have a Chi, and it works for you, great. If you are in the market for a flat iron, I recommend the GHD over the Chi. (neither of these companies know who I am, this is simply my opinion)


Refer to this post to see what’s in my hair.

*Spray your hair with hairspray before you curl each section if you need extra hold!

**I’m using the Classic 1 inch GHD Flat Iron

(man I’m pale. If there were more Twilight movies being made, they could definitely cast me.)

    Your hair always looks so pretty!!!! I bought a flat iron because my hair dresser uses one to curl my hair…it was a disaster so I returned it! She made it look so easy but it was not! LOL The curling iron works well for me.

    This post makes my heart happy πŸ™‚ After reading and reviewing all your posts, I have tried and tried again to make my hair curl with a curling iron. Repeat FAIL after epic fail. I do, however, have curling my hair with a flat iron down to a science- thanks for confirming that it is coooooolll to curl my hair this way πŸ™‚ This morning my hair is curled up pretty with with handy flat iron! Looks great on you, too sweet girl!

    It looks awesome on you! I have super fine hair but a TON of it, and I tried curling my hair with my flatiron once and turned the heat up too high, I ended up damaging my hair past repair and had to cut six inches off = ( I’m so jealous of the girls that can actually do this with their hair!

    This is the only way I curl my hair… for 3+ years! When I first discovered it (it was an accident) I showed my hairdresser how! =)

    Adorable! I’m getting my hair cut like yours tomorrow morning. I have some pics from your “my haircut” post ready to take with me…but I wonder from looking at some of your more recent posts…is your hair a bit longer now? How far below your shoulders does it fall? Just curious so I can tell my hairdresser.

  7. Posted November 21, 2011

    @Kristin: It’s about at my collar bone, but it needs a good trim!

    This looks great! it would be so nice to just take the flat iron with me when travelling instead of that and the curling iron. I would never have thought to try this. Sometimes when I use the flat iron I get those weird hair kinks, arghh!!

    Posted November 21, 2011

    Ah, I can’t do it! It’s always an epic fail when I try. However, all of the methods I’ve found before are more complicated – one whole twist while holding horizontally and holding the end and turning at the last minute. This looks easy peasy.

  10. Posted November 21, 2011

    Yep it’s official your hair always look perfect! I’ve tried this before and it def did not turn out like yours. I will try again though!

  11. Posted November 21, 2011

    Your hair looks amazing with flat iron curls! Mine always end up too flat looking. Maybe with your video I will get it down finally.

    i’ve been curling with a flat iron for years now, but it took me about a month to really learn how to do it. and i am horrible at doing hair. but once i figured it out, its super easy, and i can do my whole hair in about 10 minutes (depending on the length). i never thought to hold the end of the hair while im curling. thats a good idea!

    You have beautiful hair! I tried your curling iron method. It worked very well except for MY problem area! Sadly, my curl never holds in high humidity which is most of the time in South Texas. I also made my first Sephora purchases.Our Penneys just remodeled and included a small Sephora! I bought the Bare Escentual Prime Time lid primer and Pretty Amazing Lip Gloss. LOVE them both.

    You make me want to cut my hair off.. It’s soooo long I can’t do anything like this just long curls..

  18. Posted November 21, 2011

    I love curling my hair with a flat iron. I wish I had hair like yours that I could curl with just a curling iron… but mine would never stay pretty and would fall flat after a few hours. I started curling with a flat iron 6 months ago and I will never go back! My curls stay all day long and sometimes I will spray “dry shampoo” in the next day and do a cute up do with it since then the curls are a little looser. Great Post!!!

    Just bought my Hot Tools 1″ curling iron!! Can’t wait to watch the flat iron tutorial so I can hopefully use that technique as well! And then I’m sure I’ll be purchasing a GHD flat iron too (so glad I held off on a Chi that I “thought” I wanted so badly!). One question…my hair is getting long and I want to add a few layers…what should I “request” when getting my hair trimmed…to get the volume, and curl!!? Thanks for all your great tips — you have saved my “hairy” life!!! πŸ˜‰

    I’m SO HAPPY you did this tutorial! I literally just said to my sister the other day…”I wonder if she’ll ever do a flat iron curling tutorial”. I have hair that’s similar in texture to yours but the length is shorter so a flat iron works better for me than a curling iron right now. Love it. Love your hair color as well!

  30. Posted November 22, 2011

    @Josh and Kasi Nelson: yes because it has a bit more texture to it. But fine hair can be curled with the help of a little hairspray on each section before you curl it!

    Hi Kate! Another great tutorial…I’m really excited because I’m asking for a GHD flat iron for Christmas, so I can’t wait to try this out! Two questions, 1) Is this the flat iron you’re suggesting: http://www.ghdhair.com/gold-series/ghd-gold-classic 2) My current flat iron (not GHD) is getting some product build up on it, do you have this problem, and if so, so you have any suggestions on how to clean it best? Thanks SO much for your blog – I’ve shared it with so many girls at work and they all love it too! (We all have been trying out your tutorials and come in everyday checking out each others’ hair!) You may not realize it, but you’re changing many lives! πŸ™‚

  41. Posted November 22, 2011

    Hey Kate!

    First of all, your hair is fabulous and I absolutely love this blog. If i could do half of the things you can with your hair, I’d be so happy. Secondly, I know you use the GHD flat iron but those are pretty expensive. Do you have any suggestions for other brands of flat irons that you believe give pretty good results? Thanks!

    Aimee

  42. Posted November 23, 2011

    I am obviously going to have to try this again. I love how it turned out on you!!! I tried curling with a flat iron *ONCE* and it turned out really “fried” looking—but that was before my most recent haircut and treating my hair better and blah blah, so now my hair is much healthier. If it would look like yours does here, I would definitely do it!! It looks like maybe it has a little more volume than when you do it with the curling iron??

  43. Posted November 23, 2011

    Love!! Going to try tomorrow!!!

    Hi kate, your hair looks AMAZING after you did that! maybe its because I have long hair but when I did it I burnt my hair so badly because it seemed like the flat iron was on there so long there was smoke coming from my hair! Any suggestions??? I may just need to stick with the curling Iron im thinking?

My bob haircut is also shorter than yours so it was pretty hard to do the back.All in all I am very happy with the result and cant wait to try other tutorials you post.

    My hair is flat and fine and everytime I’ve ever curled it using a round iron, it comes out within an hour of me doing it.

    I tried this method and my hair stayed in curls ALL DAY! It looked AMAZING! It was pretty straight forward and simple, just took a bit of time. I’m going to do it again tomorrow!

    Thanks for the great video tutorial!

    Hey Kate! I tried this today and the curls would look great until it got to the very bottom and instead of laying pretty like yours do, they kinda flip and stick out funny?! Any ideas or suggestions on what I might be doing wrong? I’m going to go back and watch the video again and try again tomorrow but today I just kept getting the same result every time I tried. I have SUPER thick, coarse, wavy hair so if you have any tips on how to manage it, that would be great! I’ve always just styled it stick straight with a flat iron so it doesn’t look so huge but I’m going to keep playing with the curls because it looks so pretty on you! πŸ™‚ Thanks! –Lisa

    I love your hair, I was wondering, what brush were you using in this video? Also is the cortex international flat iron an ok flat iron? (it’s ceramic) My hair is thin, soft, and shiny, i don’t really know what texture it is but my hair doesn’t hold a curl from a curling iron very well, is it possible curling with a flat iron would be better for my hair? I don’t use any products other than shampoo and conditioner and an occasional spritz of hair spray in my hair.

    I tried it out tonight.. never been able to use a curling iron before- always get a crimp in it. But this worked very well for me. I had to add a little more twisting action but my hair is much longer than hers, very thick, lots of hair, and naturally curly (or should I say frizzy). I was pretty happy with how it turned out and I can only imagine how good it will look with more practice.

    OK, I’ve always wanted to curl my hair, but I SUCK with a curling iron, so when I watched this tutorial and realized that one can curl their hair with a flat iron, I decided to try it today. My hair is probably a very similar texture to yours and almost the same cut. It was actually fairly easy, and oh my goodness, my hair is beautiful!! The curls are still intact almost 11 hours later too. Everyone at work has been commenting about my hair (I put it in the messy bun/explosion yesterday), and I have been directing everyone to your blog. Thank you for your help! You are so adorable!

    Hello. First, may I start off by saying, I love your blog! I found it via pinterest and cannot stop looking through everything! I just have a quick explanation and question for you. I have not tried the flat iron curls as of yet, but I know for a fact my hair does not hold curl from a curling iron at all. I have very fine hair and a TON of it! It’s also pretty long, to the middle of my back. I watched your video on how to use styling powder, and I was wondering, if I use the styling powder prior to curling my hair with the flat iron, do you think it would help to hold the curl better? Thank you so much for putting these videos up. Coming from a person that lacks hair styling know how, they are extremely helpful! Take care, and may God bless you!

    My hair never holds a curl for more than an hour or two…and that is when I have sprayed each curl with spray before curling it. I had seen another clip of curling your hair with a flat iron but it was done differently and it left my hair looking unkempt and kinky! I tried this technique today, before going to have family pictures taken, and 8 hours later my hair is still as curly as when I started! It was so easy and I loved how my hair looked afterwards! Thanks so much for sharing and I look forward to trying out some more of your techniques! Keep them comin’!

    After getting married 9 months ago, i have so unfortunately gained 20 pounds (and am doing my hardest to work it off). this has made my self confidence go down and me not to care that i look clean and polished. Along with this, i wear my hair straight and down all the time because of my lack of self confidence. I was ready to cut my hair from shoulder length to a short chin length bob so i wouldnt have to deal with it nor the boring straightness all the time when i discovered your blog. I cannot wait to try the curls with my flat iron!!!! I have been told my whole life that i have beautiful hair(thick & naturally shiny, brunette with many natural red tones)and many people i know hate to see me cut it! And I believe all of your ideas on here i know will help me to bring out the beauty of my hair (and me) πŸ˜€ Thank you so much!

    As a hairstylist myself and someone with fine, hard to curl hair I love these cute tutorials! However, spraying your hair with hairspray is a bad idea as hairspray has plastic particles in it and when they heat you get melted plastic in your hair. Not easy to get out and not at all good for your hair. Use a strong heat styling spray (such as Redken Hot Sets) instead of hairspray. Hairspray over styled hair is good, styling over hairspray is bad.

    I absolutely love all your tutorials!! You make it look so easy and I love all the different styles! How do you get more volume? My hair is pretty thick but I cant get volume around the crown of my head like you have. I’ve tried teasing it, but it doesn’t seem to work. After I have tried teasing it, it has some volume but as soon as I lightly comb through it, it just goes back to being flat on my head.

  95. Posted April 5, 2012

    I curl my hair with a flatiron all the time! It took my a while to figure it out. I had to keep experimenting, but since I know how to do it now and can work kind of backwards using a mirror (and without buning my fingers) it has cut my curling time almost in half!!! My hair is thick and long so the extra hot curling iron (ALWAYS ceramic plates, not just plating!, that heats up to 450 degrees or higher)and the smooth surface helps me do a large amount of curling in a small amount of time and the curls stay in even when it’s muggy! I can also sleep on my hair and still wake up with it being curly!!! If you’ve got the persistance and the skill to use a flat iron, go for it!

    Kate,

    I have a couple of questions about curlingwith a flat iron. First, Do you recommend using a 1 inch flat iron for this method of curling, or would a 2 inch flat iron work just as well? Second, My hair is just a few inches past my collar bone, and very curly and frizzy, but not as neat as I’d like it to be. Do you think straightening my hair before trying to curl it with the flat iron would make it a bit simpler to curl?

    Your hair looks great. My hair never achieves such beautiful curls when I do it. Thanks for the tutorial and pics.

    OMG, I totally understand the way that you feel about the CHI. Mine broke after 2 years of use and it over time it was not giving me the results that I wanted. I have not read any reviews on the GHD flat irons but by the looks of your hair it must be great.I recently switched to the Paul Mitchell straightener.I have my experience at my website.

    I have been curling my hair with a flatiron for years so its cool to see someone else doing it. Keep posting we love it!!

    Your hair looks so gorgeous! I don’t know if you have heard of the Heat Cap or not, but I started using it and it curls my hair in only a few minutes. I really love mine! I’m trying to spread the word to others girls. It’s good to share beauty tips :o) If any of you want to check out the video on their website it’s heatcap.com

    The video is just a few minutes long and the results are amazing. I couldn’t believe how beautiful all the girls hair turned out!

    I LOVE THIS!! I have naturally wavy hair and for some reason it never holds a curl when I use a curling iron. I tried this and I love it! It was so easy and fast and my hair is still curly and cute πŸ™‚ thanks so much for the video!

    I love this video… I tried it and it started to work and then fizzled out. I have naturally curly hair that’s unpredictable and pretty thin. When trying this, I straightened my hair the night before (it’s how I usually wear it anyways) and then just tried it now and the curls would just not really form. I have the same flat iron, same amount of layers as you… Any suggestions on how to get the curls to hold like yours or should I stick with another method… Never been good with a curling iron either… I think because my hair is just very thin but your straightening video was a definite hit, now I just want a good way to curl my hair too… Do you suggest hair spraying beforehand to help them hold?? THANKS!

    I just had my hair cut a lot like yours. I’m looking forward to trying each of the different ways of styling on your tutorials.
    Thanks!

    I watched this I don’t know 6 months ago and everytime I curl my hair this way I get compliments! I still need practice though, and a new flat iron I think. I have a croc flat iron, which is pretty good but it doesn’t have the temp control. I should have paid the extra $ for the one with temp control, darnit! I’ve tried using hair spray before curling, but I find that it’s harder to pull the hair through the iron. Am I damaging my hair by using hairspray first? hmmm…

    Thank you for this tutorial, it was very useful! I have been looking for a really nice tutorial like this. I have loved all of your videos and was delighted to find one on curling hair with a flat iron.
    I had never thought or read of using hairspray before styling hair, so this was an extra plus to the tutorial for the nice information.

    Sigh, I tried and tried this method a million times already and I can’t see mto get it right! Oh well, guess I’ll just keep trying!

    Using a curling iron does take practice but is definitely worth it. It gives you volume and in my opinion gives an elegant beauty that can not be beat. We sell a lot of flatirons on our website and is a must for every woman.

    Hi! I totally love your blog. But like they’ve mentioned before you make this looks so easy. I would have to take off my head to create anything you do, LOL! I also love your hair color. Do you do that on your own too?

    In Point Of Fact the discount rolex watches market for Fake Designer Handbags is really larger than the popular christmas gifts market for genuine branded bags. This is because the majority of cheap omega watches can simply not afford the mad costs at which genuine designer louis vuitton outlet online
    are accessible at. A genuine Louis vuitton bag can cost you up to $800. Yet if you search the hermes birkin kelly handbags inventory of knock off handbags you will have the capacity to get one for less than $100. Now why would you like to cost $700 extra on obtaining a chanel bag online that you can take for much lesser?

    Thank you so much for the tutorial! I gota layered cut this week and the stylist made it curly so I was determined to recreate it! It turned out great! I don’t have a curling iron but might have to invest in one to try, the latest thing in the uk seems to be the ceramic curling wand so not sure if that would be easier to use still! Would be lovely to know what you think! Many thanks again and merry christmas when it comes! x

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
