Woman uses hot radiator to curl hair after losing her curlers
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
A UK woman who misplaced her curling iron says, in a stroke of genius, she turned to her boiling hot radiator pipe to give her hair a little bounce. Yes, she wrapped her long blonde tresses around the pipe for an Herbal Essences commercial-ready look.
The industrious 22-year-old, Emily Kendall, was preparing for a night out on the town — but almost cancelled her plans due to the hair emergency. As the mom of one searched for her tress tool, her daughter attempted to touch the pipes.
“And I said ‘no, it’s hot!,’ ” Kendall recalled. “Then I realized the pipe was there and thought ‘oh, that might work.’ ”
She got down on the floor and wrapped her hair around the copper pipe, careful not to burn herself — a lesson many New York apartment dwellers have learned the hard way.
“I looked in the mirror and thought, ‘oh my god’ when I saw the first curl,” she said. “I was shocked. I couldn’t believe it had worked. So I decided to carry on.”
About 20 minutes later, her hair was fully curled — “and with my curlers it takes about 40,” she said. “It’s quicker and I’m saving on electricity in the meantime.”
Kendall was delighted that her curls lasted through her night out, and into the next night’s events. She has since vowed to continue her “hack” until she replaces her curling iron.
She even inspired her squad to get down with their radiators, too.
“My friends loved it,” she says. “They were all taking pictures of me because they couldn’t believe it. They’re inspired to try it now.”
It’s a wonder her technique went off without a hitch, considering one girl’s curling iron technique went off horribly wrong. A Florida middle school student went viral after burning her hair off with a curling iron while filming a beauty tutorial on YouTube.
