Success Straightening Hair with a Flat Iron

June 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Sleek, shiny straight hair is absolutely gorgeous, and many Hollywood stars know this and wear the look often while out in public. Not only is it a sexy look, it is so much easier to achieve than most hairstyles. Really for a great straight hair look, all you need is healthy hair and a good professional hair iron to smooth out the hair. The emphasis is on good quality hair irons since they are easier to use and are much safer on your hair than cheap models that you may find at a drugstore which will damage your hair and leave it looking less than it’s best.

Once you have you have a good tourmaline ceramic hair straightener and hopefully you have a healthy head of hair, then straightening may take a little bit of practice to get the hang of the handling the tool. You should always start at your roots and the underneath layers of hair and slowly use the flat iron from root to tip in gliding motions. Work your way like this all around your head and from the bottom layers up and you will end up with a perfect straightening job every time with just a few practice glides.

A round face shape is as about as long as it is wide and has soft, rounded edges.

When it comes to hairstyles for those of you with a round face shape, layers are key. You can go long or short but want to make sure your haircut is tailored to your face shape.

Other guidelines to follow for a round face shape include;

  • Layered bangs rather than heavy or straight bangs
  • Styles which add length to the face
  • Shorter styles which add height
  • Long styles with graduated layers to make face and neck appear more slender
  • Styles which keep hair close to the face
  • Opt for half up-do’s rather than full up do’s
