Taking Your Time To Straighten Your Hair

January 18, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Women who have had their hair straightened by a stylist think they could never get their hair to look as good as it does when they leave the salon. The one thing these women forget is the only things the stylist has they do not is a professional styling tool and experience. These are both things that you can get to do your hair at home for salon quality straight hair for a fraction of the cost, and without an appointment.

 

There are plenty of professional styling tools available including ceramic flat irons that can be purchased over the internet or at fine hair beauty supply shops. These are the same tools used by the professionals so that you have the exact same tools to get the job done just as they do.

The only other piece that a professional stylist has is experience and the only way to get this yourself is to just keep trying your hair iron on your hair and seeing what kind of looks you can get. One key thing to remember is that the stylist takes her time on each head of hair that she does and never rushes the job. Taking the time to glide the hair iron slowly and smoothly over each small section of hair is a large part of the success to getting great looking straight hair.

Quality scissors make quality cuts and this will make the haircut looks its best.

Hair straightening irons come in many sizes with the plate ranging from one to three inches. The smaller plates are perfect for those with very thin or short hair since they are better at holding smaller amounts of hair. With the one and a half inch being a good overall hair iron choice for normal hair of any length. For those with courser hair a larger plate such as a two to three inch plate will be needed to effectively straighten hair of this type. Once you have the iron size that is right for your hair type you will have much more success straightening your hair out as you would like it.

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.
