April 20, 2015 7:00 am

There are some looks that never go out of style – and straight, sleek hair definitely makes the cut! We’ve put together a guide that highlights top tips and product recommendations for recreating this timeless look:

STEP 1:

Prepare hair with Straight Shampoo and Conditioner – specially formulated to be lightweight, while taming flyaways and smoothing any kinks or waves. Spray a heat protection spray evenly through the hair, to prevent damage from heat styling. Use a paddle or natural bristled brush to smooth hair, while pointing the airflow from your dryer down the hair shaft to prevent frizz.

STEP 2:

Using a Sectioning Comb, create sections of hair approximately 5cm wide, and comb them through. Using a straightening iron, gently glide the plates down each section slowly, using the comb to keep the hair taut.

STEP 3:

Finally, dispense a couple of pumps of Salon X-Clusive Shine Oil into your palms, and rub your hands together to create a fine film of oil. Run your palms over the lengths and ends of your hair for a healthy sheen. Never be tempted to overload hair with product, when it comes to oil, less is more – and remember, you can always add product to the hair, but you can’t take it away!
