Options for Straightening Hair

September 8, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

So many women want straight luxurious hair right now and the stars in Hollywood and models on the runway only encourage this by keeping the look in fashion as the in style to have. Of course if you are not born with naturally straight hair you can either get it chemically or by using hair straightening irons. 

Of course the option to chemically straighten your hair will not be available if you use permanent coloring on your hair even if there is just a little at the ends left this must be gone before you can use chemical straighteners. Also those who swim in pools a lot cannot use these chemical straighteners as the chlorine in the water will have very negative effects on your hair.

If the above conditions apply to you or if you just do not want to subject your hair to those nasty chemicals then hair straightening irons are the more effective way to get that straight hair. The drawback to this method is it does not last long at all so the most cost effective way is to purchase quality salon hair straighteners and do the work yourself as opposed to going to the hair dresser every time you want your hair straightened.

Hairstyles with Bangs

Bangs are coming back into fashion again and by having a cut with some bangs this will give you some versatility to create different looking hairdos each day without doing anything drastic. Of course you never want your bangs to lie totally flat against your scalp so you will want to make sure they have some body when you step out of the shower. This can be done by styling them with a ionic hair dryer as you dry them by fluffing with a comb or even styling them to the side. If your bangs need a little extra touch of style give them just a small amount of heat from your curling iron while you style the rest of your hair.

The straight hair style has always faded in and out of fashion, and right now it is one of the hottest looks going. The simplicity of sleek, straight hair is very much in demand; and hair straighteners make it very easy for someone with even the kinkiest of natural curls to get this look. Simply heating up the hair iron and slowly gliding your hair through the blades will result in elegant straight hair. This can be repeated every day you want the look or you can mix it in whenever you want gorgeous straight hair.

Perfecting the Curls for an Updo

Updos are a fashion standard for many formal occasions, and contrary to popular belief this look is really actually easy to get. With a professional ceramic curling iron you need to create lots of small loose curls in your hair. This is the body and shape of your updo that will be pinned up to create that fabulous prom and wedding look that so many women want to have. The success of the outcome of the updo is totally dependent on the quality of the curls in the hair so a cheap drugstore hair iron should be avoided and a quality professional grade curling iron is essential to a great look.

Curl is Back in Fashion

Those with naturally curly hair have been rejoicing, it seems having loose wavy curls is making a fashion comeback. So that means it is time to lay down those hair straightening irons (though not too far that look is still hot too), and pick up your hair curling irons. I know everyone tells you that you can create gorgeous wavy curls in your hair with that flat iron, but for truly beautiful curl without taking the time to master the flat iron, you will have much better luck with professional quality curling irons.

By going with the curling iron that creates the curl size you want you will have much more control over the final size of the curl you end up with. This will also translate into more uniform curls since the curling iron is one size. With the flat iron the curl amount depends on the amount you twist the iron as you go down your hair. Also using a curling iron for waves is much easier since you only need to wrap the hair around the barrel and wait a few seconds as opposed to the twisting and sliding motion that the flat iron requires. Curling irons are simple to use and every woman should have one or two sizes around at any time to get some style into their hair.
