Straight Talk: Sleek Glossy Locks Are Back

If you want to master this summer’s hottest hair trend, it’s time to get to grips with those straighteners again.

Thanks to Millennials’ and Gen-Z’s nostalgic obsession with the nineties and the noughties, sleek, straight hair is trending. However, the dull, heat-damaged hair many of us were left with when we first embraced the look is a thing of the past. A little expertise and a couple of hard-working styling products are all that’s needed to achieve glossy, perfectly polished locks. For on-the-go style, pack cordless hot irons and a heat-protector spray; to achieve longer lasting locks, first blow dry hair in sections using a good-quality brush. Don’t skimp on treatments to ensure that straight hair doesn’t come at a compromise to its condition, and always seal your look with a spritz of hair spray or glossing mist for a lasting mirror-like finish.
