Beauty Trend to Try: Perfect Poker Straight Hair

As desirable as complex hairstyles can be – especially for special occasions – there is something about simplistic ‘dos that is so deliciously and leaves a little chic to your overall style. One such hairstyle is a this-seaon favourite; sleek, poker straight locks, as seen on the runways at Donna Karan’s Spring/Summer’14.

Not just loved by models though, this trend has been rocked by everyone – from those with natural curly hair to those with hair that’s as light as air, including celebrities like Rita Ora and Rihanna;

And, after having undergone some sort of a style-over, Nicki Minaj has recently been seen donning the poker straight look, letting her pretty natural face be the highlight, framed beautifully by her tame tresses.

To achieve this hairstyle, all one needs is a comb, a bit of patience and a plated hair straightener, but do be sure to use a heat protector like our fave –Fantasia’s Hair Polisher Heat Protector Serum ($8.90) – before using any straightening iron on your hair. We’d also recommend using a wide plater straightener ($45.80) like this one by Remington ($45.80), since it will work wonders on a lot of your hair at once, saving you time and getting you to poker straight perfection much faster.
