Pinteractive: Flat Iron Curls

I'm late with posting this week as I'm happily recovering from hosting some friends lat week, so I haven't spent any time on Pinterest nor really thought a ton about Pinteractive this week. If I had planned to do any cooking, I would've absolutely turned to Pinterest for cooking inspiration, but we had a lovely time taking in many of Portland's best eateries instead. (More on that in an upcoming post.)

After our friends headed for the airport Sunday afternoon, I took a shot at this tutorial for creating curls with a flat iron

While the results weren't bad, per se, I think it'll take me a few more sessions of practicing before I don't want to throw the flat iron out the window when I can't get my hair to look just like the damn tutorial. 
 Top row: Just curled, brushed out, Bottom Row: in a cute ponytail, and this morning. 

I think my fav versions are the ponytail and the morning-after. 

Unrelated, but am I the only one who hates trying to get good self-portraits via your phone? Awkward, party of 1. Or maybe not.

Your turn! Grab the code. Link up. Yada, yada, yada. 



  1. I just did the same with my flat iron this weekend! I used a Youtube tutorial which was nice because I could see the movement involved and have someone talk it out (notwithstanding the fact it was a teenager with a valley girl voice). Definitely takes some skill though. I felt the same way you did :)

  2. I have a flat iron but definitely do not have the patience for that tutorial. I think your hair looks great though!

    And amen on feeling awkward taking self portraits. For the record, you don't look weird in your pictures. You look great!

  3. your hair looks really good, I will try those curls with my Karmin G3 Salon Pro which is amazing, causes less damage to my hair and keeps it soft, shiny and smooth. :D
