Straight hair is sleek, stylish and easy to manage. However, for some of us that have pin straight hair, it can be a challenge to curl or style in general. It can be difficult to try and manage the frizz and avoid frying your hair! We all want amazing hair day every day, so let’s show you how to do it with these 3 hair hacks for straight hair.

#1 Try different types of sizes of curls 
#2 Sleeping on a satin pillowcase
#3 The double ponytail trick

#1 - Try Different Types and Sizes of Curls

For this hair hack, we’ve actually given you an easy to reference chart on the different types of curls you can achieve with different sized curling tools. That you way you can save it to your Pinterest board for later. Use the chart to determine what kind of curl or wave you want to achieve so that you can plan your look ahead of time. From mermaid waves to rock-style round curls, we’ve got a look that we know you’ll love! 

Experiment with different types of curlers and stylers that can help you achieve a different curl or wave.

Here are some tips to remember when it comes to curling your hair:

  • The smaller the curling tong or barrel, the tighter the curl. The larger the curling tong or barrel the looser your wave or curl will be. 
  • If you want curls that are tighter, curl less hair and for looser curls, use more hair.
  • Tighter curls give you the Shirley Temple look and larger waves or curls are perfect for everyday hair. 
  • Brushing out curls with your fingers is a gorgeous way to soften the style at the end.

Here’s our handy infographic to pin to your Pinterest board:




#2 - Sleeping on a Sating Pillow Case


Smooth it out with satin! The smooth surface of a satin pillowcase helps smooth frizz and minimises static hair. Less friction is created with the smooth surface of a satin fabric whereas cotton can slightly be harsh against your locks. Switching to a satin pillowcase for your beauty sleep can help keep your hair fresh and reduce breakage. Satin for the win!

Order a satin pillowcase online or purchase from your local beauty supply store to reap the benefits!


#3 - The Double Ponytail Look For Voluminous Hair



If you have straight hair that’s pin straight, try this trick to a get a voluminous ponytail. It’ll create the appearance of longer hair without hair extensions. The secret is to pre-curl your hair to give you added voluminous hair.
Here’s how to create the double ponytail for straight hair:

  1. Curl your hair by using an automatic curling styler like the Smooth & Wave.
  2. Part your hair in two sections from ear to ear. 
  3. Tie the top section like a half-up half-down hairstyle and wrap a small section of hair underneath around the hair tie to conceal it.
  4. Repeat with the bottom section and make sure you style the top pony to hide the bottom ponytail for consistency.
