Why You Shouldn't Listen To Music While Curling Your Hair

We'd be lying if we said we'd never performed amateur concerts (for ourselves) in our living rooms/bedrooms/bathrooms. There's just something about being home alone, with the music cranked up, that makes you feel like a rock star — suddenly you can sing, dance, and even twerk with the best of 'em. So what if your only audience is your mirror and/or your cat?
Well, we're here to tell you about the hidden dangers that come with at-home lip-synching. Especially if you're getting your groove on while, say, doing your hair. One minute you're harmlessly rapping Kreayshawn while you curl your locks, and the next you're on your way to the ER. Don't believe us? Just watch the Vine below from user Brittany Furlan. As she put it, "That moment you're so into a song, you forget your curling iron isn't a mic." Let's all learn from her mistakes, and drop the hot objects before we drop the beat.
