Tools, Tips, Technique
Tools: Flat irons come in all shapes, sizes. heating capacity and materials: from ceramic plate and titanium to tourmeline.
I prefer a medium sized iron both in length and in width.
Always clean the plates before using. Residues of laquer, serum or other products causes the iron to stick to the hair and reduces its effectiveness as well as possibly burning the hair when the iron is kept in one place for too long.
If the iron does not move smoothly lower the temperature and repeat the action a few times
Some plates that have slightly rounded edges tend to leave marks if not used correctly or too hastily.
Technique: Use the flat iron in one continuous motion on a length of hair for to avoid imprints made from a stop and start method.
