No curling tongs? No problem.

Trust us, you don’t need five different curling irons to achieve a variety of wavy hairstyles. In fact, you can easily create loose or tight curls, beach waves and even crimped waves with just one hair straightener! Just remember to work on one small section of hair at a time and with a steady hand, you can either flip your hair inwards (towards your face) or outwards (away from your face); these different methods will determine the direction of your curls to give you a different look altogether. Don’t believe us? Then check out the hair tutorial below, but first, get these items ready before you begin your DIY hairstyling.
