Heat styling is way too popular than any permanent styling as the same style can become boring. With heat styling a woman can do her hair differently each day or on different occasions.
But different hair styles do not mean different hair tools. You need not spend a fortune spending on different hair styling tools for each hair style. Since, flat hairstyles are such in vogue and with so many good flat irons available in the market; the best option would be to invest in a flat iron. No, do not get me wrong. We are indeed going to do a curly hair style today.

But if you are looking for the versatile one, go for a good quality which is narrow in breadth. Depending on the breadth, the size of the curls would vary.Start with the usual hair cleansing and conditioning.

Do the wrapping as you would do on your curling tongs and then let go of the parting handle to let the other plate rest on the wrapped hair for some time. Count ten and then, part the plates and unwrap the section. You have your well defined tendril now. Do this to your entire head and mist it with a setting spray. Now you have the gorgeous curls without having to use any curling tongs at all!
