you need to buy one of the irons that have curved edges rather than corners. try nicky clarke ones

yeah...If you have a straightener with relatively small plates and yep rounded edges...you should be able to curl your hair around, but it may be a bit difficult and you could burn yourself!
although you're probably better off to get a curling iron if you want to do it regularly

I don't have rounded edges....just a normal straightener but I don't curl it tightly around it (because then it obviously comes out kinky) so i just sort of loosely wrap my hair around the straightener in sort of an irregular way (ie it's not perfectly loosely wrapped, i just sort of fumble about to be honest) and it works fine

If you look on www.ghdhair.com they have step by step guides and videos that show you exactly how to do it.

^Hey Tushka...how did you remember!

Indeed I do curl my hair with straighteners. I have GHD's but regular straighteners are fine. I curl my hair around my fingers and then clamp the curl with the straighteners and then heat the curl for about 20 seconds. Then I unclamp the curl and spray some TIGI curling spray over it and run my fingers through it for a bit.....works a treat for me!
