Top mistakes while flat ironing your hair

by Bionic Beauty on 07.Jun.2009 · 6 comments

We all aren’t licensed hair dressers or cosmetologists. And hence, we sometimes make mistakes without even realizing what they are. This video helped me improve my flat ironing technique, so I figured it would help some Bionic Beauty readers as well.

Once again, it’s brought to you from the wonderful folks over at There are tons of videos on YouTube on hair care, styling tools and products, but I like Misikko’s because they are simple, quick to watch, and straight forward. I don’t want a 20 minute video on how to get my hair as straight as a movie stars. I just want the basics. Please and thanks.

Thanks for the video, I just got a flat iron and was wondering if I’d totally mess up my hair with it.

The flat iron scares me (because I have no idea how to use it) but I love it if the hairstyler does it on my hair 🙂 I need to learn more

That video totally helped. I too am a newbie to flat irons. Thanks for the vid

Hazel, Halifax and Alexis, I’m SO glad this video helped. If you want, check out the other Misikko videos on flat-ironing. They REALLY helped me learn the ins and outs. I was pretty good at ironing my hair, but now it’s a breeze after I watched their videos.

Hope those help! Feel free to comment back or email me with any questions.

Some great tips there. I would also add that you should always use a thermal protector spray before styling. The thermal protector forms a barrier between the iron plates and your hair and the iron will simply burn off the serum instead of burning your hair.

I can’t yet watch the video, but I shall soon. I bet it will help me as well. I agree that a serum is a super idea. I’d also recommend investing in as good of quality flat iron as you can afford. It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. I’ve heard that solid ceramic plates are best for hair. I look forward to the tips in the videos you mentioned, BB. Thanks!
