Hi ladies- Rachel from Life Unsweetened here. As much as I love my natural curls, there are days when all I want in sleek, pin-straight hair. Luckily for me and the rest of the women who feel the same, there are a variety of styling products and tools that make this easily achievable. The photo of Doutzen Krous above shows just why women covet the center-parted, straight look.
Want to copy her style without the help of a professional hairdresser? Read on below.
Start off by prepping wet hair with a product like Bumble and Bumble Straight Blow Dry.
This lightweight balm allows you to get straight hair while also reducing frizz. Since the product is activated by heat, it's perfect for using right before blow-drying.
Plug in your favorite blow dryer and use a GHD Paddle Brush to dry hair in sections, starting on the lower layers by clipping the tops layers out of the way. Straight hair looks amazing with a center part, so if you can pull it off, try it.
After the hair is dry from blow drying, it's time to straighten the locks.
Chances are your hair is semi-straight from blow-drying with the paddle brush, but for pin-straight hair you'll want to eliminate any bends or bumps. The GHD Classic 1 Inch Styler gets the job done quickly and efficiently.
Lastly, it's time for shine and hold. The Ouidad Climate Control Frizz & Flyaway Fighter Taming Shine Spray will eliminate any frizzies that popped up after blow-drying or straightening. As an added bonus, it adds shine without looking too greasy. Lightly mist your entire head with the Drybar Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray. This product has a long-lasting hold and is formulated without parabens.
