If you’re planning to buy a hair straightener but not really sure if it is worth it, know that it will be every dollar well-spent. Hair straighteners can help you create several amazing looks. That’s right; it will not just limit you to straightening your hair. This tool is as versatile as it can be. And in today’s post, that’s exactly what we’ll explore.
Here are many ways you can stylise your look with a hair straightener:
- Beach Waves
As summers are around the corner, you can channel the beach-inspired vibe with bouncy and ultra-soft beach waves. For this look, first, blow-dry your hair after taking a shower. Next, use a large round brush to comb your hair for sleek and smooth results.
Now heat the straightener—meanwhile, separate hair into small one inch sections. Use the straightener by working away from the direction of your face and the roots downwards. Take each strand of hair and twist it around the straightener from the top and hold it for a few seconds. Now carefully release it to give it a curl. This is time consuming but worth it. Work through to the last strand.
Once all your hair is curled, now spray saltwater or dry shampoo on the curls and massage them lightly with your fingertips. It will give a soft and tousled look.
- Crimped Braid Out Look
The crimped hair look is making a comeback, but for this look, you don’t need to buy extra tools like a crimper. You can achieve the same fashionable look even with a hair straightener. And that is not an overstatement.
To flaunt this look, all you have to do is to apply a medium styling mousse throughout your hair. This is much needed to add volume and natural movement to the hair.
For this hairstyle, work with one-inch section of hair at a time.
- Create small braids all over the head.
- Now slowly pass the straightener over each braid separately until your hair is heated through.
- Allow them to cool down before releasing.
- Next, finish your final crimp braid out style with a spritz of shine spray.
- Twisted Texture
Apart from creating sleek and smooth hair, a straightener is an excellent choice for creating killer textures. For twisted texture, simply start from the back of your head. To create this hairdo, you will have to work with two-inch sections of dry and clean hair.
- To get started, twirl each section until it creates one big twist and then run the hair straightener over the twist.
- Hold the bottom of the twist for a few seconds until the hair cools. Now release and then untwirl the twist.
- Next, run your fingers through the locks to achieve a perfect unkempt look. Don’t forget to set the style with hairspray.
- Flippy Ends
If you wish to switch up the straight go-to hairstyle, then flippy ends are the perfect way. To create this super easy look, all you need is to use a hair straightener. Use it to curl the ends up. Try inverting flipped ends and curling them up and towards your face if you want a more subtle look. To keep flippy ends intact, use a texture finishing spray. The finishing spray ensures a touchable hold and feels perfect on the ends.
- Dramatic Volume
If you want a bold and big voluminous look, go for it with the hair straightener. You can easily achieve this sexy and glamorous hairstyle with a hair straightener without even backcombing or damaging your hair.
All you have to do is use a round brush and a straightener. After blow-drying your hair, use a heat protection spray. Now divide your hair with a tail comb into many small sections. The smaller the sections, the more volume you will create in your hair.
Next, take each section and slowly work it through with the hair straightener from the root to the end. Once your hair is straightened, use a large brush and wrap the section around the head. However, this time the movement will be from the end down toward the scalp. But leave two or three inches away from the scalp.
Now place the straightener on the section and below the hairbrush—move away from the head. When you reach the end section, wrap the brush downwards again and hold until it cools down. Finish off the look with a strong hold hair spray for best results.
