For many their hair just seems to have a mind of their own and it just seems to want to be frizzy and out of control. Yet there are stories all the time about how a professional hair straightener can get rid of that frizz and curl to give you that long sleek gorgeous hair that you want. But then there are the stories that hair straightening irons do not work well and that the celebs we see just have great looking hair because they have stylists to take care of them.
Well regular women can get gorgeous straight hair by using a professional hair straightener and there are even groups out there willing to talk about which irons they use and how they get those great results.

When it comes to looking your best, there is never a more important time to look hot with a styling hair do than at your yearly Christmas parties. And not only is it important to look your best with a fancy new dress, and some glam makeup, but you cannot forget about your hair. Because after all, you wouldn’t be looking and feeling so festive if your hair was doing the same old boring thing it did every year.
Yes, Christmas is the perfect festive season to pull out your curling iron, your hair straightener and your hair dryer and start your styling engines. You don’t have to spend a fortune at the beauty salon to have a gorgeous hair style; all you need is the right tools and a little imagination.
Of course no matter what style you are trying to achieve, you want it to look healthy, shiny and dazzling. Not frizzy, dry and damaged. So it is important that to create a healthy hair base, you dry your hair with an ionic hair dryer. Choose a hair dryer that has ceramic coated elements and the addition of tourmaline because these items will create negative ions that will actually dry the hair from the inside, out which means that it will reduce the amount of time it takes to dry your hair, giving you more time to style it into a beautiful up do. Besides giving you more time to style, which is a gift in itself, this type of quality hair dryer will make your hair look even healthier because the negative ions close each hair cuticle, allowing them to lay flat and retain their natural healthy shine.
It’s often easier to style your up do if you start with straight, sleek hair. Once your hair is completely dry, use a ceramic or titanium straightener to create that sleek look. Using a quality hair iron also adds shine and a natural luster to your hair that will make any up do look extra special.
Once you place a few strategic pins and clips, you can also use your hair straightener to flip up edges, smooth tendrils to frame your face or even create curls. Of course, if you’re looking for a very curly look, a quality curling iron will help you create the cascade of curls you are looking for. Choose a ceramic barreled curling iron for the smoothest curls, and after that, you must decide on the size of curls you are trying to create. If you want tight, corkscrew tendrils, look for a smaller barreled curling iron, and for soft, flowing waves, a bigger barrel will do the trick.
Creating festive up dos can be a lot of fun, and with the right tools for the job, it is easier than you think. Simply use your imagination and take some time to practice and soon you will have a styling new hair style for the party season that will dazzle all of your coworkers, friends and family members.

Do I really need a hair straightener? I mean, what do I really need one for?
These are common questions for those who have never experienced the benefits of a hair straightener. In fact, I heard these exact comments from a friend the other day who was simply not convinced that investing in a hair straightener was worthwhile. If you are struggling with the same questions, I’ll tell you the same things that I told her.
When it comes to looking your best, a hair straightener is one of the most efficient tools that you can have. Hair straightening irons are not only for the ladies with extremely curly hair that want a straight look. Not at all! This particular friend of mine has hair that is definitely not curly, but it does have a natural wave in it. Most of the time it looks a little messy because it’s neither straight nor curly.
Unless you were born with perfectly straight hair, a hair straightening iron is essential for achieving a beautiful sleek look. If you have hair like my friend’s, an iron will smooth out any kinks, or puffy spots to give you amazingly straight, gorgeous hair.
But what if I have extremely naturally curly hair? Will a hair straightener be able to tame my curls?
Absolutely! Many ladies with very naturally curly hair became discouraged with early models of hair straighteners because they simply weren’t strong enough, to straighten out their curls. They would have to go over and over their hair, damaging it in the process in order to get the look they wanted. Not anymore! Technology has changed and now there are a number of hair straighteners on the market that will tackle even the tightest curls and not only straighten the hair, but leave it looking healthy and amazing instead of damaged and frizzy.
When you’re looking for a straightener, choose one with titanium or ceramic plates and for even more effective straightening power, look for tourmaline technology which actually dries the hair from the inside out and produces a negative ion charge that closes the hair shaft, sealing in moisture to make it look and feel extremely healthy. No more frizzies!
But wearing my hair straight everyday might get boring. Is there anything else a hair straightener is good for?
Of course! Most women like to change up their style every once in a while, and you need a tool that will allow you to be versatile. A hair straightening iron can be that tool for you. You may think just by the name straightener that the only thing a hair iron is good for is straightening your hair. However, you can also create flips in your hair and even curls and waves all with the same tool. With a little practice, you create many different looks all with the same tool.
Well I have straight hair already, so I don’t need a hair straightener.
I beg to differ. Besides creating different styles with one tool, even if you have naturally straight hair, a straightener is still a very beneficial tool. The new technology that utilizes tourmaline which is a naturally occurring mineral actually helps to make your hair healthier. Tourmaline responds to heat by becoming electrically charged and emitting negatively charged ions. These negative ions smooth your hair, by closing the hair shaft. Eliminating breakage, split ends and dry frizzy looking hair. Your hair will look healthier than ever before!
It doesn’t matter what your hair type is, you can benefit from the investment in a quality hair straightener and achieve beautiful, healthy looking hair!
