How to Curl Your Hair With a Straightener

This may seem like a random post for the blog, but I’ve had a randomly large amount of requests for a tutorial on how I curl my hair. So I finally decided to bite the bullet and record a tutorial.  It is super easy to do and I think it looks more natural than a curling iron. I didn’t think to take pictures after filming the video but here are a few pictures of the finished product.


 This is my everyday look because my hair doesn’t stay straight well. It’s got some wave to it and will start to get funky, weird waves through the day if I straighten it so I’ve decided to not fight it and curl it each day. You’ll see that it’s pretty quick too. The tutorial is about 6 minutes and it is from start to finish. I will warn you I’m totally awkward on camera. Especially in my tiny apartment bathroom talking to invisible people in my mirror:) To be honest, this was the 4th time I tried to create this video and decided no matter how it turned out I was going to use it. It’s not zoomed in enough and could be a little clearer, but it’s my first video so please bear with me! The first video was actually probably the best one, but I realized after I took it that my arm covered the camera for, oh, half the tutorial:) The 2 next videos stopped recording half way through and I didn’t realize it until I was done…womp, womp. Apparently my card in the camera was almost full and pretended to record but never did. Soooo, here is the 4th and final version.

Do any of you curl your hair with a flat iron? Anyone have any great tips for curling?

    I’ve always loved your hair, Jessie. It takes me a long time to curl mine with a straightener, but you’ve given me motivation to keep trying and be a little more whimsical with it. Thanks for the tutorial!

  3. You make it seem so easy, Jessie! Good video! Don’t worry about the quality. It’s great. With my long hair, it takes me a while to get it curled with a flat iron. Your hair looks great!
