Hot Iron Tips for Ultra-Cool Looks

Posted by Team John Paul Mitchell Systems on Nov 15th 2016

What’s straight, wavy, curly and everything in between? Your hairstyles after a week with the latest Paul Mitchell® styling iron! The brand-new multifunctional Express Ion Style®+  includes updated digital features and promises smooth, frizz-free and conditioned results in a fraction of the time. Whether you’re primping for a date, getting polished for work, or going crazy for a party, this is the only weapon you need to slay your look and battle bad hair days.

From voluminous vibes to carefree curls and the comeback crimp

Every girl likes to go big before going home after a fun night. To create tidal waves for days:

  •  Part your hair down the middle, then take a two-inch section in the back on either side.
  • Starting at your roots, hold the iron vertically (parallel to your head) and turn it toward your face as you work down the hair.
  • Work toward your face, switching the direction you twist the iron. Tip: The second section should be twisted away from your face. Repeat on both sides.

God-given or handcrafted, curls need the proper care to ensure they’re more whimsical than wild. To mold your perfect mane:

  • Part your hair down the middle, then take a two-inch section in the back on either side.
  • Starting at your roots, hold the iron horizontally (perpendicular to your head) and turn it downward, twisting repeatedly as you work down the hair. Note that the more you twist, the tighter the curl will be.
  • Repeat on the other side. Tip: To avoid clamp lines, keep the iron moving at all times.

Crimp your style with subtle texture that’s adorning the runways, red carpets and music festivals of late. To resurrect this ’90s hair trend:

  • Create several individual braids. Note that the tighter you want the crimp, the smaller the braids should be.
  • Tap and hold down each braid with the iron to set the crimp pattern into place.
  • Use your fingers to unwrap each braid, starting with the ends, then join each section together. Tip: Make sure to let the braids cool before undressing them.
