Choosing a Hair Straightener:
Consider the natural texture of your hair. Thick, coarse hair will require a hair-straightening iron that heats up to high temperatures, but thin, fine hair can be damaged by high heat. If you have fine hair, shop for hair irons that offer a variety of heat settings. Digital flat irons let you choose the exact temperature to avoid damaging your hair with too much heat.
Take a look at ceramic flat irons if you have fine or thin hair. Ceramic hair straighteners are great for smoothing out hair and reducing frizz. Ceramic holds heat very well, allowing a ceramic flat iron to achieve high temperatures; plus, ceramic plates encourage even heat distribution. You can choose between ceramic flat irons with ceramic plates, ceramic coating, or tourmaline plates. Tourmaline is actually a gemstone, but it works like ceramic when flat iron plates are coated with it.
Consider titanium flat irons if you have thick, coarse hair. Titanium hair straighteners can heat up faster than ceramic flat irons, and they hold a high heat at a consistent temperature. Titanium, a lightweight metal, also has an ionic charge, which helps you get your hair looking smooth quickly, without having to go over the same section as many times. The high heat makes them popular, but this may not be best for people with fine hair, which can scorch easily.
Choose the right size. Hair straighteners come in many sizes and widths. Small, thin flat irons are great hair care tools for men and women with short hair. Small hair irons are also perfect for styling bangs and spikes, and they travel well. Large, wide hair straighteners cover more surface area and are good choices for individuals with long or thick hair.
Select a hair straightener with the right features. Hair tools come with a variety of features. If you have naturally curly hair, you might like a flat iron that has built-in comb teeth or steam functions that can tame and set unruly tresses. Cordless flat irons are great for jet-setting men and women, and instant-heat hair straighteners are perfect for people who don't have much time to get ready in the morning.
For 2015 Oscar awards season’s biggest night, this year nominees left nothing to chance. Best Actress contenders Marion Cotillard, Rosamund Pike, and Julianne Moore took a timeless beauty route for the red carpet, pulling their hair back into sleek, crisp updos paired with knockout nude makeup—and ensuring on-stage acceptance looks they will never regret. Those with less at stake embraced laid-back hair—and the occasional calculated risk: Dakota Johnson’s wispy ponytail made her red lip (and matching Saint Laurent dress) feel modern and age-appropriate, while Naomi Watts and Margot Robbie gave an edge to their matte statement mouths with relaxed yet polished bobs.
