    There's a heat-styling tool for every curl pattern we could dream up. However, lucky for those of us with storage space as limited as our budgets, we really only need one: our trusty flat iron.

    We were recently converted to this school of thought on the set of a makeup photo shoot, where hairstylist Austin Call from Aveda created crazy-gorgeous zigzag curls with some strategic clamps of his straightener. Watching him do it, we had a feeling that a whole world was about to open up.
