How to Perfect a Stunning Sleek & Straight Hair Style
Sleek. Stunning. Style. Words we ascribe to high-fashion and magazine covers can be yours to boast as well. Whether you’re prepping for a night on the town or a dinner date at home, you can call this sophisticated style all your own.
To show us how to get this glossy evening getup, we’ve enlisted TRESemmé partner Raven Elyse. After a quick wash and condition, Raven is ready to convert her luscious curls into this silky, straight look in just four simple hair styling steps.
Tools needed to achieve this style: Blow dryer, flat paddle brush, flat iron, fine-tooth comb.
Step 1: With damp hair, spritz the Expert Selection Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray all over. Massage from roots to ends to ensure it’s entirely worked through. For those with curls especially, this works as a heat protectant, so make sure to apply it before blow drying.
Step 2: Once you’ve applied your Pre-Styling Spray, grab your blow dryer and flat brush. In small sections, pull the brush down through your hair, following with the blow dryer close behind. This process ensures you dry all your hair while simultaneously straightening it out, which will make the flat iron process easier.
Pro Tip: The smaller the sections, the better!
Step 3: When your hair is completely dry, section your hair again. Using what’s called the “chase method,” run a fine tooth comb through your hair with one hand while following with the flat-iron in the other. This provides the smoothest, silkiest results. Start from the bottom sections of your hair and work your way to the top, leaving no hair untouched.
Step 4: To lock in the look, finish with Compressed Micro Mist Level 2 Smooth Hair Spray. Spray it liberally all across your hair, honing in on your baby hairs to keep flyaways at bay. This anti-frizz spray keeps your hair defended from humidity while still delivering a touchable finish that allows for flowing movement as you head out.
Step 5 (Optional): Keep the look alive through the week by using TRESemmé Dry Shampoo to refresh and revive between washes. Be it to reduce oil or boost hair fragrance, this quick spritz keeps your silky style on the go.
And just like that you’re ready to strut the runway or stun the evening crowd. Watch the video above to see how Raven Elyse perfects it in action.
