    Diahna Husbands: Hello. My name is Diahna Husbands and I am the owner of Diahna Lynn Hair Studios. And I am going to show you how to style your hair with a flat iron. And now, I am going to show you how to flat iron your own hair. So, first my models hair has already been washed and conditioned using our signature hair care line, Amino shine shampoo and our vitalizing conditioner. Then we also used a treatment, a leave-in treatment which has a built in thermal protectant. But now, I am about to section her hair off into four sections which makes the job of flat ironing go a lot quicker. You just section the hair down all away through the nape of the neck. Then you start at the crown of the head and you section off the hair from ear to ear. Then we use our clip to take the hair out of our way. Then, again going to the crown of the head, sectioning the hair off from ear to ear. Okay. So now, I am going to take down our first section. And now, I am going to take about an inch-and-a-half wide section, and about a half-an-inch deep, then take the other hair, and clip that up and away. Then with an inch-and-a-half wide section, I am going to take this tourmaline iron. Take the iron in at about a quarter of an inch away from the scalp and take the iron down the hair, in one steady motion. Make it sure not to keep the iron in one position for longer than five seconds. And now, we just continue this, straight up the head, taking an inch and a half wide section. So, just taking the hair out from the head, sliding the iron down the hair. And I am going to continue flat ironing her hair, the rest of her hair and then I am about to show you how to pick the perfect size flat iron to do gorgeous curl.
