Curl Hair with a Flat Iron

I know there are a lot of tutorials on how to curl your hair with a flat iron. I have been using a flat iron to curl my hair for.... well, at least 4 years. There are a bunch of different ways to actually get a curl from a flat iron. I don't have a real "tutorial" about how to do this, if I should make a more detailed one, let me know.
For this type of curl on my daughters hair, I THIS .5in flat iron. Sectioned out about 1 inch pieces. Put the flat iron on, turned it half way (so the top was no on the bottom) and just pulled down like I was straightening her hair. Some of the curls were done with the iron held vertical (mostly the bottom ones), and some horizontal (mostly the top ones) It took us about 5 minutes to do her hair this morning. She loved it. She kept telling everyone, "Like my hair? My mommy did it. It's like a primpess hair." (primpess = princess)
Then for this curl, I used my 1 inch flat iron. I held the iron vertical, and as I was pulling out to the side, I was twisting it like a curling iron. Easy Peasy.
