I would prefer a flat iron over a curling iron any day. Why? Because flat irons are so much more versatile. You can use it to straighten, curl, wave, flip, or volumize your hair. It can probably do more things that I haven't discovered yet.
Months ago, a youtube-er asked me to make a another tutorial with a straightener, so here's a quick one. (Teehee, I know I'm slow on requests xDD). This hairstyle is fast, simple, easy, and cute~ I love how it's messy and natural looking (:
I like the loose waves, but you can always have smaller/tighter ones by wrapping your hair around one finger instead of two. And since your hands will be close in contact with your flat iron, wear gloves if you feel it's necessary. Be careful and don't burn yourself.
Happy one-day-early Lunar New Year! Btw, I'm sorry I couldn't make a tutorial for it in time; I guess this old video of mine can be a substitute? x]
