Sleek, smooth styles.
For years we've been seeing tons of voluminous texture on the runways. And while curls, waves, and tousled locks are always in style, lately we're seeing a resurgence of sleek, smooth, straight strands. These three super-straight styles below have us reaching for our flat irons to get straight hair, stat.
Straight Lob with Blunt Bangs
While the lob continues to reign supreme, switch things up by straightening your style for a blunt, bold look. To achieve this look, add a heat protectant to damp hair and blow dry straight. Then, reach for your flat iron and run it through your locks along with a straight comb, in order to get those blunt ends. Finish with a little serum to add mega-watt shine.
Long Straight Hair with a Middle Part
This classic look has seriously stood the test of time, evoking an effortless, bohemian vibe. Your cut is key when it comes to this style-it requires very long layers or no layers at all. Apply a heat protectant and then blow dry your hair with a natural bristle round brush, lifting up at the root for movement. Run an iron through the length to keep things smooth and straight and then apply a shine serum or spray.
Half-Up Wet Ponytail
Pull your hair away from your eyes and draw attention to your cheekbones with this straight style. To start, you'll want to brush back the top section of your hair and secure it in a tight ponytail just at the base of your crown. Spray with a wet-look or strong-hold hair spray to lock in your style. If needed, run your flat iron through the length to straighten any unruly strands.
