Hair crimpers are similar to popular curling irons
Crimping hair is a method of styling usually straight, long hair so that it undulates, often in a zigzag fashion. This is usually referred to as crimping, but can also be called wrinkles or deep waves.
Crimping is usually achieved by treating the hair with heat from a crimping iron (also often called a hair waving iron) or by braiding the hair, often in multiple strands, and then unwinding the braids after a few hours. A hair crimper has parallel heated plates designed with a flat, repeating S-shaped groove.
