    Remember that juicer you bought that was full of promise to turn you into a green-juice machine? Or, the yoga mat that was going to make you bend in wonderfully impossible ways and instead has been sitting in a sad corner gathering dust? If your curling iron is the latest to join your Never Been Used purchases, you're not alone.

    Even though we all may own a curling iron, it seems only a few of the hairstyling elite actually know how to use it.
