Here’s How to Use a Flat Iron on Short Hair!

To get the perfect straight hairstyle you have to start right after washing your hair. Using a leave-conditioner will help keep it healthy and smooth. It’s good to apply it specifically to the ends but also generally throughout the hair. This will also help make styling it more manageable.

It’s also a good idea to use a serum just to the ends of your hair while it’s still damp. This will eliminate any frizz and make your hair look extra soft after using heat.

Next is blow-drying your hair! Just make sure your hair is completely dry because it’s never good to straighten wet hair.

Now it’s time to straighten. In order to do this you’ll need a clip to section off your hair. It’s best to clip the top up and start with the bottom sections.

While using the flat iron you’ll want to curl it a bit under towards the end. This will give you a nice polished look.

After each section I use a weatherproof spray. This also helps to keep the hair looking smooth and doesn’t let humidity make it puffy.

Repeat these steps for each section of hair until it is all straight and looking gorgeous!

The top section is going to be the most important to make the look perfect. Just continue the same method of running the flat iron all the way through your hair but still flipping the hair under at the ends.

After flat ironing it’s a good idea to take the back ends and front sections and flat iron them in a couple different directions to give your hair more volume.

Lastly, spray on one last layer of weatherproof spray and a comb!

After following all of these steps your short hair will be looking smooth, sleek and straight! It can be challenging based on different hair types and of course may take some changes to achieve the perfect routine for your specific hair type. However, these steps are a perfect basis for anyone with short hair.
