The new way to use your hair straightener
If you’re anything like me, you’re probably a bit reluctant to think outside of the box when it comes to heat styling.
After all, if the experiment fails, you’re left with a dreadful ‘do that you either need to scrape up into a top-knot, or wash out in the shower.
The good news? Hairstylist from Denmark, Nicci Welsh, is here to prevent this #hairfail happening. Not only has she found a new technique, she’s also shared it on YouTube, so we can copy!
The style, which Nicci calls the ‘S Wave’, is a soft, natural wave a’kin to a loose finger wave (as opposed to a tighter spiral curl).
So how does it differ from our usual straightener curling technique? Well, usually we would slide the tool down the length of a section of our hair, twisting and turning it in different directions to achieve different styles.
Instead, Nicci takes a section of hair, pushes it into an ‘S’ shape and taps her flat iron over the shape to set it. She then alternates the ‘S’ shape all the way down the length of the hair, creating the S-shaped wave.
