Because who wants to drop £400 on a curling tong.
Beauty Youtuber and all-round makeup guru Huda Kattan has delivered the answer to our prayers with a thrifty curling hack… using a plastic bottle.
The Dyson Airwrap was hailed as the must-have beauty buy when it dropped a few months ago. Guaranteed to be the perfect Christmas gift for creating luscious curls in seconds without damaging your precious locks, they said. But it doesn't come cheap, the curler retails for a staggering £400 – ouch.
Instead of using heat, the curler – which is made by hoover giant Dyson – uses air. Kind of like a hoover… but for your hair. The intelligent bit of tech took more than six years of testing to perfect and uses a spinning motor to create an area of high pressure at the top of the styling barrel. Clever, but still ridiculously expensive.

OMG!! 😲 Have you guys tried this HACK?! Using a water bottle to create curls! I had to try it & I have to say it WORKS! This took me less than 1 minute to do MY WHOLE HAIR!! It’s got to be the best hair curling hack EVER! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Caution: make sure to wear gloves to prevent burning yourself, I hurt myself a little bit 😫
Luckily, we have Huda. The mega influencer showed her Instagram followers an ingenious way recreate the same sort of curls for a fraction of the price using a plastic bottle. The little trick uses a hair dryer too and it's kind of recycling, right?
Using a small knife, Huda cut a plastic bottle in half and made an incision along the side of the bottle wide enough to fit the nozzle of a hairdryer. Once the bottle was wedged in, she sectioned her hair and placed it inside. The hot air then magically twisted the hair round to form a defined curl.
Now, be warned. It's not *quite* as simple as Huda makes it look. She did admit she burnt herself during the curling process. Some have also reported that rather than curl, they've kind of been left with a tangled mess. Well, beauty is pain.

I don’t understand beauty gurus sometimes. I just watched a video of a girl shoving half a head of hair in a plastic water bottle and then sticking a blow drier through a hole to curl it. Like sis, just plug in your curling iron it’s not that serious.— Mary (@M_I_jackson) November 7, 2018
