Split and braid your hair into two sections and tie with a rubberband. Twist the braid away from your face and then twist the flat iron onto your hair in the same direction your hair is twisted. Do not touch rubberband or else you will get that weird crease. Repeat this process twice! After hair is cooled, then take them out and run your fingers through the braid. Saw this on Rachel Ray Show. It gives you nice beachy waves!-- I'm gonna try this!
this works just as well with hair extensions (you can spritz clip ins with hairspray or curling mousse/gel, twist and secure with pins, and leave on the counter overnight for the same result, without having to sleep with buns)
