Hi. My name is Diahna Husbands. I am the owner of Diahna Lynn Hair Studios and today I am showing you how to style your hair with the flat iron. As you can see, I have already shown you how to do three types of gorgeous curls and now I am going to show you how to curl your hair for a simple elegant up do. I am going to show you the tools you are going to need to do the Up Do. But first we are going to begin by sectioning the hair off into four sections. So you take your comb, and I am not going to part her hair down the centre, I am going to use her natural part line to section her hair off.
SO, I just section using her natural part line then continue down all the way to the nape of the neck. Starting off through crown of the head, sectioning off the hair from ear to ear. Go from the crown of the head all the way to the nape, and section the hair off, put the clip. Then we take out first section and section that hair off as well. Starting again at the crown of the head, sectioning the back section off, clipping that up, sectioning off the front section. And now, I am going to begin curling for the Up Do.
So again, take about an inch and a half wide section, pin the hair up, then take the hair out at a 45 degree angle. So, we are going to do a half based curl, and the reason why we do half based curls or you can either use half based or full based curls and that gives your up do the most amount of support. And it is going to give your hair a very nice texture as well. Taking the iron in, turning the iron, sliding the hair down the iron. And then I am just going to continually take sections down the hair.
So, to make a curl, you take the hair out from the head at about a 45 degree angle, turn the iron towards yourself. Then glide the iron down the hair in a steady motion and that's how you make a gorgeous curl with your flat iron. So now, I am just going to continue these steps, curling my models entire head and then I am going to show you how to do the up do in less than ten minutes. So now, I have just completed all four sections curling my models hair for the up do. And now I am about to do the up do.
So, we are going to section the hair off, from the crown of the head. Again sectioning the hair off from ear to ear. Then, I am going to go to the left side and section off the hair. Now, I am going to take the comb and comb my models hair up into a high pony tail. Taking the pony tail holder, and wrapping the hair around and for the magic, and I am going to take the pony tail, open it up and turn the pony tail in on it, so, -- and take the back two sections, pin that into a pony tail and taking the other front sections and pining that into the ponytail. So, now I have completed this gorgeous up do. It took less than ten minutes and I know you can do it too.
So remember to flat iron your hair, use your flatiron to style your hair and I will see you next time.
