However, what if we told you that you can also use it to create new hairstyles? Beach waves, ringlets, romantic locks, you name it, your straightener can get the job done for you! Doesn’t that sound awesome? So, enough of chit-chat, let’s check these hair-straightening hacks out right away.

From the four hairstyles in this video, we’re going to pay attention to the first one. It’s a great hairstyle to wear to interviews and presentations. All that’s to be done is take a tiny section of your hair and straighten it. Flick the straightener inwards at the end. Did you know that inward curls give the illusion of a sleeker face?
Nothing fancy, this travel-sized hair straightener will help you get the round, defined curls. Begin by dividing your hair into two halves, comb it to detangle it and get rid of the knots. Place a small section of hair in between the thongs. Flip and roll the straightener upside down and make sure that your ends are facing down. Slowly and gently, pull the straightener down and voila! You’ve got yourself the perfect curl.
Who doesn’t love beach waves, correct? Beach waves aren’t tight curls, they are loose waves, and look stunning when teamed with a summer outfit. Remember to always use a heat protectant spray or gel before using a hair straightener to prevent hair damage. Just how we saw how to curl our hair in the video above, the technique is the same here- just a shorter waiting period.

If you’re bored of your straight pixie hairstyle, switch things up by giving this hairstyle a shot. What do you need, you ask? A hair straightener (duh), hair gel and hairspray! Since your hair is short, you may not get super defined curls, but what will get is cutesy wavy hair.
