With an endless array of straight haired models parading the AW13 catwalks way back in February, we Dirty Looks girls knew it would only be a matter of time before sleek, straight hair would seep their way onto high streets everywhere. And we have to say that, having always been big fans of smooth, ironed styles ourselves, we’re loving winter’s straight hair revival!
However, we must admit that sometimes it is a little difficult to tread the fine line between naturally sleek-looking locks and limp and lifeless curtains. The key to this season’s modern, more voluminous take on 90s straight hair is, of course, all in the styling. So if you’d like to create silky, healthy-looking straight locks to rival Cara Delevingne’s, simply read on for our favourite styling products for sleek, straight hair!
Tigi Catwalk Your Highness Volume Collection Root Boost Spray
Just because we’re talking straight styles, don’t assume that your hair will need to be slicked down flat to your head! In fact, more than a little volume is required at the roots to recreate AW13’s take on sleek, straight hair. We love to give our roots a boost with the Tigi Catwalk Your Highness Volume Collection Root Boost Spray, which, as a lightweight foam mist, is perfect for giving hair enviable height. Simply spritz onto your roots before blow-drying to give your straight style a bit of oomph.
Tigi Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray
The Tigi Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray is another of our go-to products for sleek, straight hair. This divine-smelling spray won’t weigh our hair down, plus it allows for lots of movement so it’s perfect for achieving ‘just what I was born with’ healthy-looking straight hair. For best results, mist Queen For A Day throughout damp hair and blow dry for voluminous, on-trend tresses.
Tigi S Factor Flat Iron Heat Defender
Of course, before we get straightening, our locks need a good dose of heat protection spray to prevent them from becoming dry and brittle. Here at Dirty Looks, we highly recommend the Tigi S Factor Flat Iron Heat Defender, as not only does it protect our hair against thermal damage, but it also leaves locks feeling nourished and looking soft and shiny too. Oh, and did we mention the seriously addictive watermelon fragrance? It’s one product for sleek, straight hair that we just can’t get enough of!
The ghd Gold Classic Styler
We can always rely on our trusty ghd Gold Classic Styler to give us smooth, frizz-free locks in an instant. What’s more, they always leave our hair with a straight-out-of-the-salon sheen, too! This season we’re using ours sparingly on our hair to add the finishing touches to our ‘naturally’ straight hairstyles - no over-ironed, poker-straight locks for us!
We think AW13’s voluminous take on classic straightened hair is a Delevingne dream! What products do you use to get sleek, straight hair?
