Want modern, sleek hair, without all the fuss and frizz? Uh, who doesn't? Consider this your go-to guide for straightening hair—no matter what your hair texture is, this will be helpful.
For this look on Rachel, Domino’s market editor, the master hairstylist and founder of Spoke & Weal, Jon Reyman, wanted to embraced the softness of her hair for a sleek look that’s finished without being too done.
Shampoo and lightly condition the ends of hair. Products that reduce frizz are perfect for this look. Reyman recommends Aveda Smooth Infusion for a sleek and smooth look. “You don't want to get the hair too greasy, but it’s okay if some of the oils make the hair smaller,” says Reyman.
To finish the look, a flat iron set a high heat will give the sleekest look. “The rule is do it once well, instead of many times poorly,” says Reyman. “Run the iron through hair well and clearly, use a comb to help direct. You want that comb to straighten the hair so the hair running through the flatiron is completely flat. It really helps set hair.”
Use a firm hair spray to add tack and humidity defense. Reyman likes Aveda Control Force Hair Spray. And Domino loves ghd's flat irons, they work flawlessly.
