3. Twist your hand away from your face until your hair wraps around the flat iron’s clamps to create a curlier wave. Using a 1.25-inch-wide flat iron, like Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Styling Iron 1.25 Inch, feed a 1-inch section of hair closest to the nape of your neck between the two clamps of the flat iron. From there, in one fluid motion (or else you’ll create divots in your hair), twist your wrist away from your face, so the hair flows over (not under) the iron. Make sure the hair continues to wrap around the flat iron’s barrel as you push the iron toward your ends, which will create the curl. Think of this technique in the same way you’d curl a ribbon with a scissor. Remember, the smaller the section, the curlier your hair will be.

Optional: To get that perfectly imperfect beach wave, the hair guru suggested mixing these curls with bent sections. In full disclosure, the hairstylist admitted that he prefers using curling irons to create waves—they were designed, well, to curl, after all. And while this editor achieved the look, she too felt curling irons are easier to use. However, for the savvy woman equipped with just a flat iron, this proves the tool is a tried-and-true dual-purpose weapon.Paul Mitchell Neuro™ Style 1″ Flat Iron, $134.99

Turn on your flat iron. You need an ordinary duel-sided flat iron to curl your hair. A 1 inch (2.5 cm) iron will be perfect for the job. Just give it a minute or two to fully heat up. If it has settings, pick a setting in the middle so the iron curls your hair the right amount — if the setting is too high, your curls may end up looking a little bit dented.

1. Create cool-girl bends (rather than Victoria’s Secret-worthy waves) in your hair by feeding your hair into the straightener in an “S” formation. Start by dropping the middle of a section of hair into a flat iron to create the first bend. Then, feed the piece in between the flat iron clamps in an “S” curve formation, clamping down on the shape to create the bends. Repeat to the ends.
