Getting straight hair is never as simple as just running a straight iron through it. Sometimes the straighter the hair, the more obvious those dreaded frizzes appear to be. It's worth your time to take a few extra steps so you can look like you just walked out of the latest hair commercial. In slow-mo and everything. Celebrity hairdresser to the stars Serge Normant has shared some of his tricks over the last few weeks and now he's breaking down the steps to get smooth & straight locks resembling the model below.
Step 1. Spray Meta Lush Volumizer from root to tip through damp hair.
Step 2: Create a defined side part.
Step 3: Blow dry with a middle size round brush giving a good band to the ends.
Step 4: Using a 1 inch barrel curling iron, curl the bottom half of the hair but be mindful to use larger sections of hair as not to over curl.
Step 5: Brush till you see the shape you want.
