How to get perfectly straight hair

Whether it's long-term or just for the night, here's how the get this ultra glam look...

In the salon...
Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is a safe procedure that 'relaxes' your hair's natural kinks. A cocktail of chemicals are painted on and blowdried in, keeping hair smooth for around five months. New advancements in technology allow for organic chemicals to be used in the process, thereby safer for you hair. It's brilliant for curly-haired girls or those who are prone to frizz. You could also go for the permanent hair straightening process available at salons.

In your bathroom...
The heat and humidity in summer months causes hair to frizz so you should get to work on your kinks right after showeringif you wait until the hair starts to dry, it'll be hard to control. Work a relaxing balm through towel-dried hair, then blast semi-dry using a round brush. Apply a product specifically meant to protect and smoothen hair when used with straighteners, then divide hair into small sections and slowly run a hot iron through each one for a perfect finish.

At your desk...
Heading to a cocktail do after work and need straight strands by six o'clock? A smart last-minute fix is smoothening out dry hair using a frizz control serum like TIGI Bed Head Control Freak. Work the product through you hair (use very little or it'll leave strands oily), then run a hot iron from base to ends in a slow, steady motion. Section away the top layers of your hair with a butterfly clip while you work your way from the back to the crown for a more polished result.
