You don't need a curling iron to get perfect curls you’ll love! Next time you are looking for a new, fun hairstyle, pull out your flat iron and get these amazing results!

Hair style was done by Sharelle Loudd at Beautique Salon in San Jose, CA. She was awesome enough to demonstrate this secret technique while we documented the process. We hope these tips will help you make the most of your long natural hair.

Thanks to audreyobscura for the beautiful photography.

<p>All this is so well documented and that's great! I have poker straight hair but I crave for curls and more volume all the time. I also use flat iron to curl my hair but the difference is - I'm NOT able to do this good job. But it is also damaging my hair so I'm trying some more ways to curl my hair without heat which I read here <a href="http://thelifesquare.com/how-to-curl-your-hair-8572196/" rel="nofollow"> http://thelifesquare.com/how-to-curl-your-hair-85...</a>And I must say one of them worked for me really well.</p>
<p>Cant wait to try this for the last day of school so excited</p>
<p>Yay! Love to see a picture if you get a chance :)</p>
<p>&hearts; Karmin makes the best in my opinion ^_^</p>
<p>I like it</p>
<p>Can you please show the motion with the hair inside the flat iron? I am THAT clueless....is there a good number of seconds inbetween flipping your wrist? Are you wrapping around the flat iron or through it?</p>
<p>Im Trying this with my Victorya flat iron from ISA Professional, the ceramic tourmaline plates should be perfect for this. Thanks for this!</p>
<p>i have tried it is so great if you are in a hurry for a b day part or wedding </p>
<p>Hi, nice advices! My Karmin works really well at straightening and curling hair. </p>

<p>The curls look soooo cute! I've never used flat iron for curling hair! I'll try :)</p>
<p>You have long beautiful red hair.. =)</p>
<p>Tanks!</p>
You're welcome!
<p>Wow, this is so well documented! My hair is too straight but I want curls and more volume all the time so I keep doing &quot;this&quot;...the difference is that I do it much quicker and mostly on the front, because I don't have the patience to do it on my whole hair :D It's useless to say that my result is NOT that good!!</p>
<p>I'm sure it looks very cute :) It does get to take a really long time with lots of hair!</p>
<p>such great images and you have the prettiest hair princess nicole!!</p>
<p>Why thank you :) I do love these pictures Audrey took! They made my hair look quite fabulous :)</p>
Cute!! I have done this before!!
<p>Thanks! I still need to try it myself. I only have a 2 inch flat iron, so I want to see what results I get with that :)</p>
<p>Wow, those GIF's really show the technique. Your hair looks great!</p>
<p>Yeah those gifs are pretty awesome and that hair! Wow!</p>
