You don't necessarily need straighteners
to achieve that just-left-the-salon finish. Other tools can do just the job when it comes to achieving a professional-looking, lasting finish. Here's a look at the tools you need to achieve the perfect finish.
For a perfect end result, you need to begin with healthy hair. "If you have split ends
, head to the salon. Damaged ends are a clear hindrance when trying to create that fabulous finish."
To start with, make sure you're working with clean hair. "Use shampoo and treatments designed for your hair type
to get your hair looking nice and healthy."
Once you've washed and towel-dried your hair, it's time to get down to business! "To create that just-left-the-salon finish, all you need is your hair dryer
, a round brush
, a straightening cream, a comb and hairspray. Nothing more. Oh, and a bit of time to play with!
You shouldn't need any assistance achieving your flawless finish. You should find it easy enough on your own. "Once you've washed and towel-dried your hair, apply your straightening cream in order to prepare your hair for the heat. Blast dry your hair then separate your hair into sections using hair clips. Pin up the top section of your hair first to blow dry underneath. The brush should work parallel to the movement of your hair dryer, from the roots to the ends. Once you've blow dried throughout your hair, spray hairspray onto a comb
. Use it in your hair to get rid of any frizz and keep your style in place all day long." Our tip:
You can also achieve the same result using a flat brush. The technique differs from the "classic" method. With this brush, start at the roots, stretching the hair down to the ends. © Pixelformula/Burberry Prorsum prêt-à-porter show, Autumn-Winter 2013-2014 © Jean Louis David
