The Cut: Using a Flatiron to Create Waves

Waves with a flatiron...sounds like an oxymoron, doesn't it?   Emma Stone has been sporting this modern looking, beachy bob, with straight ends for the past few months, (thought I've seen better shots).  I love how effortless it looks and wondered how on earth one achieves its.

Kathleen Hou of N.Y. Magazine's The Cut, took the  guess work out of it by getting Mara Moszak, celebrity hairdresser to demonstrate her technique.  I wanted to post it in case those far more gifted than I, might take a shot at achieving the look at home.

Use a Flatiron to Get Perfect Beachy Waves:

Like the old cliché about Eskimos and snow, celebrity hairdressers have tons of words for waves — beachy,surfyslept-injust got laid — and about as many ways to create them. Mara Roszak's personal specialty is the smooth, non–Miss America wave. Hairstylist to Emma Stone and Cara Delevingne, Roszak is persistently interviewed by beauty editors about her signature waves. Last month, she took the time to teach us how to create a sophisticated non-crunchy look on Nicola Acocella, an account coordinator at Alison Brod PR. GIFs ahead

DD:(I had to Google GIF, its a tech term for a movable image...kind of.)

Here is a link to the complete article and GIF.

My friend Linda Levy is a whiz with hair.  I'm going to see if I can enlist her to try it at home, or even better, on me!  Good, bad or meh, I'll post the results.

Like the look? Would you venture at home?  Do chime in....
