I was just looking online at how to make beach waves and I came across a bunch of youtube videos that show women using their flat iron. Never would have occurred to me (apparently, I live under a rock).
Does anyone do this to achieve loose curls? Any advice/words of wisdom? I was going to get some extensions tonight to add to my length and now I’m hoping to make some loose/beach wave curls.

I do! It’s so much faster than using a curling iron. The only advice I can give you is to seperate your hair into sections, it makes it easier. And if you want really loose curls/waves, use a larger iron. (I have a mini iron that is around half an inch wide and it makes tight curls, my larger iron is about 2 inches and makes nice loose waves) Keep watching youtube videos, it’s so helpful to see someone actually doing it rather than trying to type out how 🙂

I do this! Like Gingersnap said, it’s so much easier and faster than a curling iron. Just remember that the slower you pull the iron through, the tighter the curl will be. If you messed up and made it too tight just flip your hair upside down and shake it out a bit.

I do this and I love it. At first I made lots of mistakes then i became a pro. I also watched youtube videos to teach myself how to do it. It takes me an hour though but I have thick long hair.

I read in a magazine once if you want to make beach waves you can seperate your hair into 4 sections. Make 4 braids. Spray your hair with some hair spray and then iron over the braid.
I have never tried it but it is worth a shot.
