Oops...Here's What Happens When a Curling Iron Tutorial Goes Horribly Wrong

A young woman demonstrates what not to do when curling hair, accidentally burning off strands while doing a DIY video tutorial

Amateur hair stylist Tori Locklear’s got a You Tube account and a curling iron. What could go wrong? She’s obviously an expert. I mean, she instructs her viewers to “take a shower,” so she must know her stuff, right?

After a random shout-out to Tresemme Split Remedy spray, Tori proceeds to melt off her limp strands using a too-hot wand iron. Her look of horror and 30 seconds of dumbfounded silence say it all. Next up: Tori demonstrates how to style a pixie cut.

Don’t try this at home: If you have thin, fine hair, like Tori’s, or if your hair is color-treated or damaged, stick to the lower heat settings on your iron. And don’t hold for 20 seconds or longer as Tori suggests!
