4 beautiful hairstyles you can achieve with a flat iron

The flat iron, or "hair straightener" depending on where you come from, is one of our essential hair styling tools. Here are four examples of how the flat iron can create a multitude of beautiful looks. Which one is your favorite?

Half-up slicked pin-straight hair

If you have even the slightest hint of a curl, or even a whiff of frizz, you'll need your flat iron to get this look. To get this look's high shine finish (without looking greasy) use Wet Domination Extreme Splash to create the on-trend wet look effect.

Sleek elaborate low ponytail

By playing with the way you tie your hair up, you can turn a regular low ponytail into a creative look like this one, spotted on the Valentino Haute Couture runway Autumn/Winter 2017. For natural-looking gloss, apply some after washing and before straightening. Of course, don't forget your heat protectant spray before you reach for the flat iron...

Satiny straight hair with side-swept bangs

This is one of our favorite go-to everyday looks. But you don't want to be using your flat iron on your hair every day, or you'll risk heat damage (split ends, weak fibers, flyaways etc.). Instead, ask your local hair salon for the limited edition Kawaii Krush Steampod, a professional and high-tech steam straightening iron that doesn't hurt hair like traditional tools.

Voluminous lob

Use your flat iron to flick the ends of your mid-length hair away from the face to create this fun and whimsical lob. A texturizing spray like the Tecni.ART Texture Dust will give you a voluminous matt finish. Simply sprinkle over the lengths and ends after styling, or work it into the hair section by section with your fingers.
