How to curl your hair with a straightener
Section hair with clips and curl pieces one inch at a time. 
Clamp an inch of hair in your straightener and gently pull down and away while twisting your wrists in a fluid full circle. 
Your hair will coil into perfect beachy waves!
It's ok to cheat... whip out your curling iron/wand to add a few more waves near your roots.
Run your fingers through the bottom of your curls to break them up.
Add a little sea salt spray to create texture and define your waves, making the perfect beachy look.
DS tip: Don't spray yourself in the eye with your salt spray.
Seriously, don't do it!
