You are beautiful, in every single way… but you don’t know you’re beautiful, and that’s what makes you beautiful. You’re amazing just the way you are, and you don’t have to try try try try so hard, you don’t have to give it all away. You don’t have to change a single thing. Take your makeup off. Let your hair down. Look into the mirror at yourself. Don’t you like you? ‘Cause I like you.
Trends may come and go, but super-straight hair is always in. Celebs like Selena Gomez and Jennifer Lawrence are seen sporting the style all the time, so I thought it’d be helpful to share my definitive guide on getting stick-straight locks at home, no salon blowout or split ends required.
Step 1: Get a professional grade flat iron. Things have come a long way since the Chi, but it’s still a powerful choice in this arena. Other heavy hitters include the Proliss, InStyler and Sedu (my personal favorite). Regardless of which you choose, a professional grade straightening iron is absolutely your best friend. I know they’re expensive, but you’ll use it constantly, and it can straighten even the kinkiest curls.
