A hair crimper is an interesting device. It looks like an obscure torture device, with two arms connected by a hinge. At the end of each arm is a wavy ceramic plate, which becomes heated by means of the power lead coming from the hinge end.

If you wish to crimp your hair, ie give it the texture of crinkle-cut crisps, then you simply brush your hair and divide into small sections. You then place a section of hair between the plates and close them. Wait for 20 seconds, admiring the puff of steam if your hair was wet, and enjoying the slight burnt smell. Release.

This method of hairstyling is loved by girls between the ages of 11 and 15 for some reason.
