Over the years, I have dedicated a lot of time and energy to finding a quick and easy way of achieving just-rolled-out-of-bed curls. You see, my hair is naturally poker straight. It’s so straight, in fact, that trying to get it to hold any kind of curl is virtually impossible. Needless to say that this whole situation has meant that trying to keep my hair tousled has proved a little difficult, to say the least. However, I’ve noticed a return to straightened looks that remind me of the days when GHDs first launched.
From some of my favourite celebrities to the fashion girls that I love following, it seems as though people are starting to dig out their hair straighteners. The best part? They actually look chic. Unlike the shapeless styles of yesteryear, the new straight is voluminous and sleek but with some movement.
And it might seem like an odd thing to say, but I’m desperate to dive right in and dust off my trusty hair straighteners, because although my hair is naturally straight, nothing gives it that sleek sheen quite like a pair of straightening irons. A quick whizz over with my go-to GHD Platinum+ Styler (£175) and a spritz of Lee Stafford Shine Head Spray (£6) is all I need for the smoothest, sleekest hair going.
If you’ve yet to be fully convinced by the straight-hair trend and are not quite ready to switch your tongs for irons, keep scrolling for sleek, straight hairstyles that just might be enough to sway you.
