While sentimental, beachy waves (close by cushioned headbands!) are one of our outright most loved things, there’s something to be said about straightener hairstyles. There once in a while comes when you need to discard the hair curling accessory and choose looks that are smooth, smooth, and modern. Furthermore, obviously, the best straighteners out there will be more than supportive in doing that, as this hot apparatus can immediately fix locks, giving them that sans frizz finish you ache for.
In any case, on the off chance that you are searching for straightener hairdos that go past fundamental pin-straight braids, we’re here to help: We’ve gathered together a portion of our fave moving hopes to discover the smoothest big name looks sure to knock some people’s socks off.
From provocative horses to profound parts, see the top straightener hairstyles to attempt whenever you’re prepared to give your hair curler a rest. Read on:
1. STRAIGHT WITH CLIPS
Let’s be real: Hair accessories (especially clips!) are all the rage these days. So, if you are looking to give basic straightener hairstyles a lift, why not add some larger-sized clips to the sides for easy styling? After all, accessories like these on Kendall Jenner, as showcased by fab hairstylist and OUAI co-owner Jet Atkin—which can come in a variety of sizes, prints, and colors—can help pump up your tresses in an instant, and can be paired with any outfit to create a matchy-matchy look made for the ’gram.
2. STRAIGHT AND SHORT
If you’re on the hunt for the best straightener hairstyles for shorter lengths, why not take a cue from Selena Gomez and use your iron to straighten your lob, instead of wearing it textured and wavy? Doing so gives your hair that mod ’60s-inspired vibe, an iconic look that always seems to impress.
However, before using hot tools of any kind, you’ll want to invest in a heat-protectant styling cream (or spray) that protects your hair from heat damage, as higher temperatures from heat styling tools can cause breakage and split ends.
3. STRAIGHT WITH BANGS
OK, a choppy shag is always chic, as demonstrated on the always-beguiling Emrata, but if you want to smooth down your tresses a bit, simply use a flat iron on your strands (plus perhaps some bangs) to give it a sophisticated yet equally daring look.
4. STRAIGHT AND SLEEK PONY
Actress Lana Condor proves that straightener hairstyles don’t have to be predictable, as a sleek ponytail (with a straight back) proves to be a trendy look that instantly commands attention. To create this look at home, simply start by sweeping your hair into a ponytail, and then use your iron to straighten the base of your style. Finish with some holding spray (we love the brushable yet controlled finish we get with L’Oréal Elnett) and you’re good to go.
5. STRAIGHT WITH A DEEP CENTER PART
Straightener hairstyles don’t have to be complicated and full of hard-to-follow steps, as even a simple, deep center part can look elegant, as Zendaya effortlessly illustrates. To create this look, simply use a fine-toothed comb to create a part that sits in the center of the scalp. Finish with some holding spray or frizz-preventing serum on mid-lengths and ends (we love Living Proof No Frizz Vanishing Oil for this exact purpose!), and say hello to smooth strands for days!
6. STRAIGHT PONY WITH CREATIVE SIDE PART
Actress and model Cara Delevingne shakes up the usual straight pony shindig by adding a creative, eye-catching part on the sides. This gives the overall style a faux-hawk look that’s full of drama.
7. STRAIGHT WITH A SIDE PART
If center parts aren’t your thing, not to worry! Creating a deep, dramatic side part a la Priyanka Chopra Jonas also gives longer lengths an alluring, screen-siren look chock-full of intrigue. To keep that side part in place all day long, be sure to lock in your style with some molding paste (or styling gel, like Bumble and bumble Gel) in order to help it stay put.
