1. Curled Ends

There are many ways you can achieve this look on your hair. You can use hot rollers at the ends of your hair and you can use a curling iron. What if you don’t have either? It’s time to put your flat iron to work. Prep hair with Dove Style+Care Smooth And Shine Heat Protection Spray then blowdry your hair straight. Take your flat iron and glide down your hair in sections, bending the ends outward to form a flipped curl.

2. Style a Bob

If you have a bob haircut, this is enough reason to own a flat iron if you want to maintain the look of your style. After applying a heat protectant to your hair, separate your hair into sections and begin flat ironing from the back. After flat ironing your entire head, apply a few drops of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to your palms, rub them together and run your hands on the surface of your finished look to add shine.

3. Faux Beach Waves

Using a flat iron to create wavy hairstyles is one of our favorite hair hacks to date. To create a beach wave look, the key is texture. Section by section, wrap your flat iron around your hair from mid length to just above the ends (leaving the ends out), hold for a few seconds and release. Once you do this to your entire head, spray your hair with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1Use your hands to gently comb through your hair to create even more texture and you’re done!
