Growing up my older brother had really curly hair, which he used to spend what seemed like hours in front of the mirror trying to tame. His only hairstyle choices were extremely short so the curl would be cut out of his hair or something that involved curl. He just like many men born with curly hair would have done anything to get straight hair since to many of these guys curls are a girly thing they do not like on their own heads.
Of course many men do not think of it but they too can use a flat iron on their hair to get rid of their naturally curly hair and get those straight hairstyles they see on the men in Hollywood that the ladies love. Some guys might be reluctant to try this depending on their personality since to many this kind of grooming is just too feminine. But many of the companies that make hair irons try and actually cater to guys by creating models that they would not mind using as much. The popular pink hair irons that are all the rage with the women just would not work in a guy’s bathroom so you can get things such as a camo design from Chi flat irons that a guy would not mind using at all.
Since many men have short hair it is important that they use a flat iron that has a small plate size so that it is easier to run the hair through the iron to get the hair straight. And just like with women it is essential that men use a quality professional straightener that will not damage their hair and leave it dried out and unhealthy. After all the whole point is to look good for the ladies and you want them to still be able to run their fingers through your hair.
If you take the time to research flat irons online before making your purchase you will find many brands with many models all claiming to be the best flat iron. Each will claim they are the best at straightening your hair while leaving it healthy and vibrant in the process. Most even have reviews online from average users just like you who have tried and even bought the iron and love to use it on their particular hair type. So if they all are so good how do you know what is the best flat iron for you?
For the most part if you only shop at stores that cater to the professional hair stylist you will be looking at hair irons that will be effective and will damage your hair if used correctly. These irons are made from quality materials such as titanium and solid ceramic plates. Plus they use the latest research for locking in moisture such as ionic infusing. Cheaper drugstore flat irons, which are not made as well such as models with coated ceramic plates, are the ones that you will want to avoid. But for the most part you will not find hair irons like these at a store, which caters to the professional and the serious home user.
Some women read on the internet just how easy using a hair straightener is and how simple it is to run the plates down your hair to create those smooth straight hairstyles that are so popular now on the red carpet and the runway. But for some no matter how hard they try with their hair iron their hair just does not come out looking good when they use the straightener on their hair. Some immediately blame the iron for the problem, and in some cases for those using cheap drugstore models, than that is probably the case. While for others who are using quality hair irons the answer is more likely to be in how they are going about straightening those locks.
Luckily just as there are plenty of web pages that talk about how easy to use flat irons are there are also those that talk about flat irons problems and solutions. These pages will help with things like what to do when the straightness comes out of your hair before your day is over, why your hair may be either excessively oily or excessively dry when you are using an iron, and so much more. Hair irons are very effective at straightening hair with a little practice and know how.
We all see the latest hairstyles on the Hollywood stars but for many it would seem like a dream to have hair that is so beautiful. Of course many forget that those Hollywood stars were once regular women just like the rest of us. The only difference between them and us is that they have hairstylists to do their hair for them before big events and for on screen. Of course the stars and the models on the runways are the ones who set the trends for the latest hairstyles that we all want but we can still achieve them on our own with a little guidance and the right hair styling tools.
For those seeking the latest 2009 women hairstyles there are loads of videos on YouTube showing exactly what they are and how to get them yourself. It does not matter what type of hair you have it seems there is a video out there showing how to get those latest looks using salon hair tools that you can purchase such places as My Hair Styling Tools. With these videos, the professional tools, and a little practice you too can find yourself looking just as good as the stars in Hollywood.
It does not take long for many women to grow tired of their current hairstyle and want to get a new look. Of course cutting their hair may not always be an option since they are trying to grow it out for a special occasion or just do not want shorter hair. Dying and perms are other options to get new looks but these harsh chemicals are hard on the hair and scalp and do not always come out looking like you want them to.
One way to get a new look without cutting or using chemicals is to use a hair straightening iron to give yourself the runway smooth locks that many models have. Ceramic flat irons can remove curl and frizz to give you a completely different appearance and daily look. Yet they are not hard on the hair and can be used one day for the look and not used another to keep things mixed up. To add even more looks to your repertoire with this simple hair styling tool you can also use it to add waves and even place curl in all or part of the hair. All of this, to change your hairstyle in a way that can bring new life to your look, but can be changed again at any time when you want.
For quite some time now the hair styling industry has been a little stuck in a rut. True the leading companies were advancing their products to be even better year by year, but there was still something missing. Finally Corioliss came along and shook up the industry with their new approach to styling tools and making women look their best. Corioliss wants stylists to think outside of the box and stop blindly following the trends and styles that we see on the runway. These looks are good but every woman has the right to be gorgeous with a look all her own and not just a reproduction of the hot looks for models.
Corioliss has a large line of ceramic hair irons that are designed for stylists who want to think out of the box and make a name for themselves making everyday women look absolutely incredible. These tools are made with the best materials so they will not only be easy to work with but will also be gentle to the hair of those who use them. Plus they are real professional hair styling tools so you can count on them to work perfectly for many, many uses not just once in awhile.
For quite some time curling irons have come with ceramic barrels which are much healthier for the hair resulting in a great looking style that you can be proud of and with no fear of causing excess damage to your hair. Now many makers are infusing tourmaline crystals into these ceramic curling iron barrels to enhance the effects of the negative ions that are naturally part of the ceramic anyway. The tourmaline crystals increase the effect and add to the negative ions so that your hair will be much healthier styling with these curling irons than with any other models available.
Chi hair tools are some of the best hair styling tools on the market and none of their tools stand out more than their professional hair dryers. These dryers are not only designed to be the best available for drying hair but also the best for getting the job done easily with the hairstylist in mind. These dryers are so easy to handle a stylist can easily manage one for hours a day. Try saying that about the cheap drugstore models that many women use at home. Also Chi hair dryers are so much quieter than any other dryer making it easier on the ears of the stylists who uses the dryer for hours a day.
There is always a debate raging on whether the use of hair dryers is bad for your hair or not among the stylists and women who use them. But the debate never tackles the question of whether they can be good for your hair. Of course in the past there really was nothing to debate, hair dryers were really good at drying your hair out completely! But that was then and this is now. Of course those old dryers that blow air over heated coils are still bad for your hair, but modern hair dryers are not and some of the latest models can actually be good for your hair.
Ceramic hair dryers were a major step in women being able to dry their hair without actually drying out your locks and damaging them to the point of unhealthy hair. These dryers do not just use hot air to dry out those locks but use negative ions to remove that moisture in a positive way. While the latest ionic hairdryers not only dry your hair without drying it out, they use ionic technology to break the water down instead of hot air to blow it away. Plus they will infuse your hair with those negative ions leaving it potentially healthier than before you started drying your tresses.
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!
