5 Flat Iron Styles

Flat irons have multiple purposes that many women don’t know about it. Here are 5 easy styles that can be mastered with just a flat iron.


Mermaid Waves. One of our favorite hairstyles, mermaid waves can be achieved by first braiding your hair into two – four braids. Using your straighter, go over each braid twice. When your done unbraid for flawless waves.

Bed Head. Take strands of your hair with your flat iron and instead of going straight down, make a zigzag pattern. It’s almost like “crimping” your hair. This makes your hair messy in a good way.


Simple Curls. Use your flat iron as if it was a curling iron. Wrap hair around the iron to form curls. Run your fingers through when your finished for a looser curl.

Curled Under. Straighten your hair like normal but add a curve your iron as you reach the ends. A small rotation of your flat iron toward the inside can give your hair more body then just a straighten look.


Twists. Just like your mermaid waves, twist strands of hair and run your flat iron over them. They won’t be big curls, but they will give your hair some texture and movement.

It’s easy to straighten your hair everyday, but it’s always nice to add a little spice to your look. Get creative with your flatiron and try these styles first to achieve looks you never thought possible. For more and step-by-step help, follow our Pinterest board.
