I've been meaning to learn how to curl my hair with straighteners for ages, but it always seemed a bit daunting and I wasn't exactly sure what I was doing. The stylist at Rainbow Room talked me through the best way to use straighteners to curl hair and let me do a couple of the curls myself so I could get an idea of how to do it properly. I really liked the vintagey style waves that using straighteners created, so I decided to have a go myself at home and managed not too badly! Whilst my 'do from Rainbow Room was a bit more 70s inspired (à la American Hustle) I decided to go for a slightly softer look with more brushed out curls when I tried it myself.
The video isn't so much a tutorial as a "this is what I did to make my hair look like this". I'm definitely not an expert at straightener curls yet, but after having done it a couple of times I'm starting to get the hang of it. Practice makes perfect and all that!
Have you mastered the straighteners curling technique? If not, I'd recommend popping into Rainbow Room International if you're in Glasgow and in need of a hair cut or style for a special occasion!
