Some women use their hair straightening iron perfectly and get those sleek tresses that are so popular right now on the red carpet. But for some their hair does not remain straight and they cannot figure out how to keep those waves or curls from returning before their day is done. Usually this is caused by extra heat and humidity in the air caused by the weather. But there are a few steps you can take to keep that hair straight and looking its best.

Use your blow dryer before you begin using your flat iron even if it is already dry, and try straightening your hair at a higher temperature setting with your professional flat iron. Also use products specially designed for straight hair and use a flexible hold spray to hold it in place once you remove those curls. And of course if you live somewhere where the humidity is especially high than use a shine serum to help battle the extra moisture in the air and keep those locks straight and beautiful all day long. These tips should help you look your best with this great hairstyle that so many women want to have.

1. Taking sections about 2-3 inches wide, place the section of hair between the top barrels and bottom plates. Be sure to stay about 1 inch away from the scalp.

2. Clamp the Iron shut and hold for about 5 seconds.

3. Move the waver down and to avoid ‘dents’ in the hair be sure to place the first barrel in the last so the waves look continuous.

4. Move down to complete the section of hair and to finish the edges tuck the ends of hair into the barrel with a tail comb.

5. Repeat steps 1-4 but when working on the crown (top pieces) turn the iron up on a slight angle to avoid getting any harsh lines around the crown of your head.

6. When you have finished your entire head you can break up the waves gently with your fingers for a softer looking wave. Spray with a small amount of flexible hold hairspray and your done!
