Straight Hairstyles


Everybody loves poker-straight, sleek, high shine hairstyles.

Straight hair has a combination of different textures - coarse, medium and fine so when deciding on a hairstyle, ask your hairdresser about the different hairstyles that will suit your hair type.

Straight hair can be cut as a solid form with a blunt cut on the ends or graduated layers giving hair some texture around the face.

A versatile cut will make different straight hairstyles so much easier to create.

Try a lower layered bob with a long fringe (fine to medium), a short cut with plenty of choppy layers (fine to coarse) or a shoulder length style with face framing layers (fine to medium).

To achieve a smooth and shiny finish to coarse hair, try to work with a straightening balm, and blow-dry hair using a paddle brush and a straightening iron to eliminate frizz. Finish with a gloss spray to boost shine.

Straight hair can also be curled using hot rollers and hot tongs or by adding a few crimped sections to give a touch of texture to straight hairstyles.

Choose low maintenance, simple styling techniques for fuss free straight hairstyles.
