When using a Hair Straightener there are some tips you should follow to keep your hair healthy and in it’s best condition.

Before using your Hair Straightener Iron always make sure your hair is clean as dirt or oily hair with any build up from left over product can cause major damage when it gets heated up from your flat iron.

It is always best to use a product that is meant to protect your hair from heat styling such as blow dryers, curlers, curling irons and of course hair straighteners. There is a wide range of products available so finding that suits your hair type and the style you are wanting to achieve is simple.

1. Name
Michelle Cousins

2. Where do you currently work?
Lewis hair team in Ipswich [check it out at]

3. How long have you been a stylist?
I have been at current job for 3 years [senior stylist] and a stylist for 2 years.

4. Which hairstyle is ‘Hot’ Right now?
I have to say the bob is still a huge style at the moment, I’m still doing loads of them, but I also think long and curly is making its way back, barrel curls, very boho. Anything with lots of layers very textured and choppy styles, long or short.

5. And ‘Not’?
Personally I think poker straight hair is not so hot now, especially for the party season we are in, its good to see more body and movement.

6. What hair color do you recommend for the upcoming season?
Colours for next season i have got my money on lots of warm brunettes,flat browns and coppers, these colours will also match the trend on the catwalk too.

7. Have you ever worked your magic on a celebrity? If so who? If not, then who would be your dream client?
I have not had the privilege of doing any celebrity’s [I'm not sure some of the Ipswich town footballers will count] although I would say I would love to get my hands on Russell Brand, Demi Moore and Sarah Jessicca Parker.
