The Wisdom of Teenage Girls

Perhaps this story sounds familiar to you: You have a curling iron, but have little idea how to use it.

Folks, this technique is for you!

As this fetching teenage girl shows us, it is possible - nay, advised - to curl your hair using your flat iron. I repeat: your flat iron! Who knew that the younger generation was so crafty?!

Though the technique takes a bit of practice to master, I can personally vouch that it is quicker, easier and more foolproof than curling your hair with a curling iron.

Also, if you simply want more body and some loose waves, the technique works really well - just don't flip your wrist as much as you would for a full curl. You can get voluminous, lively Fembot hair* in just a few minutes - a technique that's perfect for days when your hair is unwashed and flat, you're hungover, you've lost your pants and you need to be at work in two minutes.

Needless to say, I curled my hair using this method for last night's holiday party, and was thrilled with the results. A++++, will try again!

* At least I can. I can't speak for girls with super-fine or super-straight hair. If your hair doesn't like to hold hold a curl, try spraying hairspray on a strand as you curl it, rubbing in the hairspray, and then curling it. Also, spray your hair at the roots to maintain volume.
