As you can see flat-iron curls are bigger, softer looking curls than the Marcel curls I did for day 17. You can achieve this look by using small sections of hair. Think of your flat-iron as a pair of scissors, and your hair is a piece of ribbon. Depending on how tightly you want the ribbon to curl the sharper you rotate your scissors. The same concept applies with the flat-iron curls. The slower and sharper you turn the flat-iron the sharper the angles on the curl thus a tighter curl. The faster you rotate the iron through the hair the more the curl resembles a larger barrel curl. Don’t just look to your flat-iron as a straightening implement, but as a curler as well!
