StyleBell Scoop: Creating Curls with a Flat Iron
From the Editor
The Spring season is bringing so many different hairstyles, we can all wear at least one of them! The top celebrity trends sightings are still “The Bob” of the Victoria Beckham (asymmetrical) or Katie Holmes (bangs) variety; long and loose curls with tons of texture - think Giselle and Kim Kardashian; and sleek, smooth locks like Jennifer Aniston – we know that look never goes out of style! And, if you are looking to update your look without a major mop chop, try some sideswept bangs ala Nicole Richie – very girlie and chic, and fresh for Spring.
Creating Curls with a Flat Iron
Ok, you’ve heard the myth. You’ve seen other people with beautiful, bouncy curls. They tell you they used a flat iron. Curls with a flat iron? Yes! We’ll show you how anyone can achieve that carefree curly look. It just takes a little practice, patience and the right tools! Bonus - we've got a video too. Read more.
Jennifer Aniston holds the title as having one of the most fabulous heads of hair in Hollywood. Why all the fuss? Jen's signature style is always smooth, healthy and shiny, three qualities of great hair. To copy her look at the left, try a Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Flat Iron and BioSilk combo. The Nano Titanium in the flat iron is an exceptional conductor of ion generating heat that will allow you to straighten and smooth your hair quickly (up to 40% faster) and without damage. Before you straighten, rub a little Biosilk Silk Therapy through your hair from the ends up towards the roots. This will provide thermal protection, help silken and smooth your strands and add a brilliant glossy shine. We’re talking 100% straight and shiny.

I have very curly, frizzy hair that never seems to straighten as smooth as I want it too. There is always frizz! How do I get that silky look? Help!" - Joan, via telephone
If you have curly hair, you realize that going straight isn’t a few quick swipes with your flat iron. No, for you it’s an entire lengthy process of sectioning and blow drying to try to straighten your hair before you even turn your flat iron on. Why not get a little help with a straightening glaze designed to unwind, uncoil and detangle those tresses? You can straighten and smooth your style sleeker than you ever thought possible with Beyond Straight Temporary Hair Straightener. This non-chemical temporary glaze straightens strands with ease - even those unruly, shall we say overly coiled curls? Read more.
