Twist the ends of your hair between the two clamps to get these cutesy curls at the bottom, just like Alia Bhatt here. Poker straight ends are passe, ladies. Go for this hairdo and impress all.
2. A Hint Of Dreamy Waves

All you have to do is as you straighten your hair, twist the straightener and rotate it one direction as you reach the middle of your hair length. Keep twisting it the same way till you reach the hair ends. This will add some lovely waves and consequently, some volume to your hair too. Dreamy waves, anyone?
3. Get Your Crimp On

Glide your straightener slowly down each of these braids and once they all have been heated, open them up one after the other. The heat on each of these braids will result in a crimped look that will stay for long. Finish up with some hairspray and you’re all set, ladies.
4. Quiff Cute

Blow dry your hair and gather it into a pony, ensuring that you leave your front flicks loose. Neaten out the top of the pony using a straightner and twist it mid-length onwards. Finish this up by twisting the straightener as you work on the flick. For the quiff, you can start rotating the styling tool from the roots. Once the flick is styled the way you like, you can use bobby pins and hairspray to keep it in place.
5. Wavy Bombshell

After straightening out the top part of the hair, create waves mid-length onwards. Do this by gently twisting the straightener from where you want the waves to start and wrap the remaining length around the straightener. As you glide the iron downwards, waves will appear automatically.
6. Pony Up, Ladies

Tie the rest of your hair a ponytail and divide the pony into 4-5 parts. Starting from the bottommost section (that’s closest to the nape of your neck), straighten them all one by one. The textured top of the head and sleek pony is a fun hairdo to flaunt.
7. Side-Swept Romance

Place your blow dried hair on one side and use bobby pins to secure your tresses that way. Then create gorgeous waves on the side by placing parts of your hair between the two clamps of the straightener and twisting it as you proceed towards the ends. Do this for all the hair on the side and use some hairspray to get that sheen and set look.
8. Mermaid Curls

Use a straightener section by section, and slowly rotate the clamps starting at the very roots. Work your way downwards and watch lovely, shiny curls appear. This might be a tad time-consuming, but do you see how gorge the outcome is? Go for it, ladies.
9. Twists And Turns

Just make a loose braid and tug at a few pieces of it to give it some volume. As you do this, make sure you also pull out some hair strands. The ones falling out of the braid are what you have to work your straightener on, to get this look. Once the stray strands are in between the clamps of the rod, twist and turn the iron in different directions. Anything that looks too unruly can be loosely placed in the braid with the help of pins. Pretty up with this romantic hairstyle, we say.
10. Bounce Beauty

Press it with a hot straightener slowly. After this, loosen the twisted strands and your waves are ready. Do this for all your hair and flaunt perfect waves, lovelies.Featured Image: Shutterstock
