3 Different Ways To Straighten Your Hair

You can achieve many different straight styled looks using a variety of different tools. We’ve put together this easy guide on three different ways to straighten your hair so you can easily achieve a chic and simple look for any occasion!

Here’s the easy different ways to straighten your hair:

1. By using a straightener

2. By using a hot air brush

3. Or using a straightening brush


#1 Using a Straightener to get Pin Straight Hair


The easiest way to get pin straight hair without having to fork out for straightening treatments is with a hair straightener. A hair straightener works by using its heated plates to change the bonds of the hair so it can be straightened as you glide it through your hair. When moisture is added back to the hair it returns to its natural form.

You can look after the wellbeing of your hair while straightening by using straighteners with different technology. A straightener with a digital sensor can adjust the temperature to suit your hair while it straightens, protecting it from excessive heat.

A straightener with keratin will give you ultimate protection and shine while using a straightener with ionic technology is also going to help you achieve a frizz-free look.

Some great tips on how to get poker straight hair:

  • Start with clean, dry hair.
  • Use the appropriate heat settings for your hair type. If you have thin, coloured or delicate hair use the low heat settings to protect your hair.
  • Section your hair and straighten small sections at a time for an even look.

PRO TIP:  Comb through your hair before straightening to make sure there are no knots. Select a temperature suitable for your hair condition and type, that way you will only need to straighten with one pass, ensuring the best protection for your hair.M

Who doesn’t love that sleek, straight blowout look after heading to a salon? It’s easier now than ever to do it yourself at home! You can still get salon-style results in the comfort of your own bathroom by using a hot air styler.

A hot air brush tool is shaped like a round brush but the best part is that it also blows out hot air just like a dryer! It’s the best of both worlds in your hands! The round brush can also rotate in either direction to help you achieve volume at your roots which is an essential for any blown-out look.

These tools are quite simple to use and super effective in getting you the sleek blow-out look that you never thought you could achieve yourself!  

Tips on how to use a hot air brush:

  • You can start using the hot air brush when your hair is 70% dry after washing your locks
  • Part your hair into sections, just like you would if you were to do a normal blow out
  • Use the cool setting to set your look into place
