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.

Curl is Back in Fashion

Those with naturally curly hair have been rejoicing, it seems having loose wavy curls is making a fashion comeback. So that means it is time to lay down those hair straightening irons (though not too far that look is still hot too), and pick up your hair curling irons. I know everyone tells you that you can create gorgeous wavy curls in your hair with that flat iron, but for truly beautiful curl without taking the time to master the flat iron, you will have much better luck with professional quality curling irons.

By going with the curling iron that creates the curl size you want you will have much more control over the final size of the curl you end up with. This will also translate into more uniform curls since the curling iron is one size. With the flat iron the curl amount depends on the amount you twist the iron as you go down your hair. Also using a curling iron for waves is much easier since you only need to wrap the hair around the barrel and wait a few seconds as opposed to the twisting and sliding motion that the flat iron requires. Curling irons are simple to use and every woman should have one or two sizes around at any time to get some style into their hair.

Make Your Hair Summer Easy to Care For

It seems like most women want hair they do not have. Those with straight hair want bouncy curls, while those with curly hair want that sleek straight look. In the summertime we all want a hairstyle that is quick and easy to maintain so we can spend more time enjoying vacations, the beach, and the summer sun instead of being stuck in front of the mirror. Many fashion experts say that the best way to look good in the summer without spending hours in front of the mirror is to go natural.

Heat and humidity tend to make natural curly hair even more curlier than usual, so go with those curls. Let them bounce and give your hair body instead of taking the time to use a hair straightening iron to remove them. Save the straight hair look for winter time when the cold weather chases you indoors and there is less summer sun to enjoy.

For those with naturally straight hair the heat and humidity seems to way down any bounce you try to put into your hair. Let it be sleek, shiny and straight for the summer. An ionic curling iron will do wonders in the fall and winter for you, but why spend the time in the summer. Get out there and enjoy yourself with a simple blow dry and go hairstyle using nothing but hair blow dryers and protection from the summer sun.
