Wavy Hair Tutorial with a Mini Flat Iron

Hey guys, just thought I'd share a little tutorial video of how to create waves/curls using a mini hair straightener/flat iron. This was requested by Marie after I made a small post about my hair and other things here :)

The mini hair straightener that I used came from a magazine, which was pretty cool. It's a Nak Mini Hair Straightener which looks like this:

I don't think it can be purchased anywhere but it can be found on eBay.

It's pretty good and it heats up quite fast. It's also really hot when it's at its maximum temperature (I have no idea what the maximum is). There's an on/off switch and a little red light indicates that it's on =]

For me, I prefer using a full-sized hair straightener to straighten my thick, long hair so I just use this mini one to fix up my fringe or to create small, tousled waves/curls.

Here are some random pictures of my waved hair, and just in case you missed seeing my face xP:

I don't know why I'm doing the peace sign, haha...
Oh and my sunburn has gone away ^-^ Thank you for your concern

Just a few little waves

Sorry if the quality isn't good! I had to compress it to less than 100mb as Blogger doesn't allow any higher than that.

This is my first video so it would be great to have some feedback, and maybe some constructive criticism ≧_≦ But please don't be too harsh on me! Hehe

I don't want to hear about any suggestions regarding to me talking in my videos because that won't be happening (anytime soon) :P I attempted to talk in this video as you may be able to see however, it wasn't loud enough and I couldn't adjust the volume any higher :/ So I just used music throughout it.

I only wanted to share this with you guys, not to the Youtube community, hence I have uploaded it here instead.

I recorded this last week but I never found the time to edit and upload. Anyway, let me know what you thought of it ^_^ If it wasn't helpful, then I'll understand! There are many tutorial videos on Youtube which are similar to this and are more clear and informative. However if you did find it helpful, then that's good :]

PS. I could do a better one another time if you'd like me to. Feel free to leave suggestions of any other tutorial videos etc.
