I’m sure most of you are aware that things can be used for more than one purpose… a contour powder can be used as an eyeshadow, Vaseline can be used as a highlighter, and a hair straightener can be used for more than just straightening your hair. Instead of purchasing a plethora of curlers and barrels for each look, you can achieve them all with your trusty hair straightener! Here are some hairstyles that you can create with a hair straightener!
Big Wavy Curls
Give your hair some volume by curling it with a straightener. Many people have been trying this hack on TikTok, since it’s SO easy! For this, you would only need to wrap some hair around one of the irons, or just simply twist the straightener once and then pull downwards to achieve that curly look. However, if you apply too much pressure to it, it may straighten your hair instead of curling it.
straighteners > curling irons
For those who want that volume on the bottom to achieve a youthful and fresh look. You can do this like how you would straighten your hair- but with a twist (literally). Once you’re almost to the bottom, twist the straightener inwards to create a curl that resembles the letter C!
If you want a clean ponytail, but also some defined curls, this is the look for you. More often than not, when we curl our hair when it’s down, it often looks strange when it’s up. You can shape the curls and achieve the perfect curly ponytail look by using a straightener! Plus, you can section out your bangs and give them a slight curl to frame your face.

No, you’re not gonna be wet for this look, not your hair anyways. To achieve this wavy mermaid hairstyle, divide your hair into sections based on volume and slowly rotate the clamps starting at the roots. The layered curls will appear as you work your way down. This may take some time to complete, but the end result is gorgeous!
Many people have curtain bangs because they can really frame your face shape. But sometimes, bangs can fall flat, which is why you need to use your hair straightener to style them thangs! All you need to do is to section out your bangs, and twist each side backwards to the sides of your head. However, depending on how you want your bangs to look, you can curl them upwards and back.
