Perfect curls...from a flat iron? Yes, that's right, you didn't just read this wrong. This technique will create bouncy curls and a sexy beach wave...and now, after reading this, you can easily create this look at home.

First, and always, you'll want to protect your hair with a thermal spray, we love Abba's Pure Thermal Protect Spray.

Section off your hair so that it's easier to curl.

Now, smooth out the hair with the iron, grab at the plates, wrap your hair over and twist, and make sure your hair is locked between the two plates. 

Once it is locked between the two, 'straighten' your hair down into a beautiful, wavy curl. 

Shake out your hair and see if there are any spots you have missed. Spray some hair spray into your hair to add some more volume. Spray underneath and spray any fine, stray baby hairs. 

What do you think? Will you try this technique for a wavy hair look?
