Flat Irons Essay

862 words - 4 pages

Many women have the desire to obtain long straight flowing hair. How do we make this happen? With the help of a flat iron, a heated flexible device used for straightening and styling hair. Women get tired of their curly, frizzy hair but since women have found out that the hair they are born with isn’t what they are destined with, the doors opened to a new beauty.

I’d never seen these flat irons on sale before and to find them at Target is very surprising. The two one and a half inch green smooth plates on this flat iron are made up of layers of ceramic.
