Default Curling iron ever?

Do you guys ever use a curling iron on the curls around your face. I've been avoiding it lately but the pieces around my face don't really curl they just look kind or like zigzag waves. I think I will start doing it again because it usually makes me look like I actually 'fixed' my hair. I've tried the whole clipping and pinning thing but haven't had any success yet. Just wondering what everyone else did?

A long time ago I used to use a curling iron. Now I just finger curl those curls around my face when I put in my styling product and that seems to work.

I do, I absolutely LOVE my clipless curling iron for this purpose. I don't do it daily, but if I have to give a presentation at work, or just need my hair to look a bit more controlled, I will use the iron to curl some of the crazy pieces away from my face. I usually just do 2-3 small sections on either side of my face, it takes no time at all but makes a huge difference in the overall appearance of my hair and is well worth the effort!

I use it occasionally on the pieces in front and sometimes on the underneath pieces that get frizzy to smooth them out a bit.

Never. I don't do direct heat anymore except maybe a hair dryer when I'm in a super hurry of getting my hair dry. I'm considering giving my curling iron, flat iron and pressing comb away since they haven't been used in years.

I would do it ---- have done it ---- sometimes it makes all the difference.

I haven't used a clipless curling iron yet, though.
