Watch This Woman Use a Flat Iron to Give Herself Perfectly Beachy Waves

Consider us stunned. 

If you're addicted to your flat iron (it's okay, seriously), you probably think you know every trick there is to know when it comes to creating awesome styles with your iron, from curls and crimps to beachy waves.But one hairstylist from Denmark named Nicci Welsh is making waves in the beauty world with the ingenious way she uses her flat iron to create a soft, natural wavy look she calls the "S Wave."

Usually, you use your flat iron by sliding it down the length of a section of your hair and twisting and turning it in different directions to achieve different styles. But Nicci's trick is like nothing you've ever done before and when she showed it off at the Front Row beauty convention in Florida recently, beauty insiders were reportedly stunned,  letting out audible gasps when they witnessed her technique, and it's gorgeous result.

Basically, Nicci takes a section of hair and pushes it into an S shape and taps her flat iron over the shape to set it. She then alternates the S shape all the way down, creating the S wave. The result is gorgeous and natural-looking.

Thank you, Nicci Welsh. You're forever changed the way we'll use our flat irons.
