Celebrity hairstylist Nycole Jones from Daniel & Co., Huntington Beach, Calif. uses FHI Heat EPS Black Diamond flat iron to create loose texture curls and a fishtail braid.
1. Protect hair with a thermal protecting styler, such as FHI Heat Hot Sauce.
2, Blow dry the hair to remove moisture.
3. Place a small section of hair between the flat iron starting as close to the scalp as possible, and use the flat iron to curl and smooth hair at the same time. Close the iron with a grip and twist the iron, as though using a curling iron. Pull the iron away from the scalp and let the hair glide through the plates.
4. Run fingers through finished curls to give a lightly messy texture.
5. Starting from the nape, section hair to one side and fishtail braid the whole length of hair. Secure with an elastic and pull the braid out to loosen into a fishtail.
