My Flat Iron Plates Don't Match Up

My flat iron plates don't match up, is that normal? I bought the FHI Pink Flat iron and the plates don't touch, is it supposed to be this way? - Crystal
It's totally normal!
As long as the plates of your flat iron keep contact with either side of your hair section while styling, you will achieve your desired results. In general, I always recommend a section thick enough so there is no plate to plate contact at all. This helps ensure you are not causing any potential heat damage to your hair by taking a section that is too thin, and it avoids unnecessary iron friction that can cause wear on the plates over time.
Great question, thanks Crystal!
