Mornings are usually extremely hectic in my house between 5 am workouts and trying to get myself and my daughter ready for work/school. None of which leaves me much time to style my hair. Recently I converted back to my tried and true method of achieving fast flat iron curls.
The Revlon Hair Tools Salon Copper Smooth 1” Flat Iron has been my go-to straightener giving the best results for straight or wavy hair styles.
What I love most about this flat iron is it heats up in 10 seconds. The rounded copper plates allow for faster styling without any snags and 81% less breakage.
The Revlon Hair Tools Salon Copper Smooth 1” Flat Iron also has safety features like a 60 minute auto shut off and plate lock for safe storage. The kids are always in and out of the bathroom while I’m getting ready so I can really appreciate the ability to lock the flat iron as a precaution.
How to Curl Short Hair with a Flat Iron
Flat iron curls are super easy to achieve and customizable depending on the width of the section and how fast you move. For example, the smaller the section of hair and slower you move the tighter the curl.
More loose waves and beach curls are the quickest hair style to achieve, so if you’re crunched for time in the morning this will be your best option for volume.
Turn on the Revlon Hair Tools Salon Copper Smooth 1” Flat Iron and heat to desired temperature. (I always recommend starting at 300° to be safe. This Revlon Hair Tool goes up to 455°. )
Section off your hair, starting at the bottom near the base of your neck.
Take a piece of hair about 1″ thick. Place your thumb on the top of the flat iron and remaining fingers on the bottom.
Insert hair into the tool and rotate 180° away from your face, sliding the tool from root to tip towards your face. (Think of how your curl ribbon with a pair of scissors. The movement is essentially the same.)
Repeat in 1″ section throughout your whole head. As stated above, the faster you slide the flat iron, the looser the wave. Once you’re done, gently comb through your hair using your fingers to loosen and separate curls. Style as desired.
