Flat Ironed Straight

The flat iron has an ability to polish almost any hair texture into a smooth, sleek style.  Although lately, flat ironing is happening less and less as I have been enjoying my hair curly!

Here are a few factors to consider:
1. My hair is naturally straight. If you have curly hair, you can follow the same method, it just might take you a little longer.
2. I have a high quality flat iron (GHD 1 inch), that can be purchased through salon's or online.
3. If you have longer or shorter hair than me, you might get a different finished look, but you can still use the same method I use!

See this post to learn what products I use daily (and what I used for this style).

If you don't have a GHD Flat Iron, still give this a try! If you aren't able to get it as smooth, or straight, you may need to add a smoothing product, like this one, or invest in a better flat iron.

Enjoy!

    1. Yes... This is awesome hair tips. I love the video tips about hair straightening. But if to often did it might cause broken hair. I have a tips to avoid a bad effect when you use flat iron with natural treatment.
      I use coconut milk and celery leaves to do.
      Thank you for nice share

  3. What I would like to know, is.....how the HECK do you get so much volume? Do you just like tease the you know what's out of it?! I can't get my hair to look THAT good! I straight iron almost EVERY day! Please HELP!!

  4. Thank you so much! I LOVE all of your videos, and even with something like this (which I do every single day) you have still managed to teach me some new stuff, so thank you!

  5. How far back do you do your part your hair before you just make your hair bend towards the back?

  7. Would you recommend using a wider flat iron for longer hair - or is a one inch the best?

    ReplyDelete
  8. What temperature do you keep your flat iron on? Is low heat or high heat the best? Love your blog! Thanks for all your great tutorials.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Rebecca: I part to about the top of my head, and then the rest goes back!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Tay: Either one will do, but yes, you will have an easier time with a wider flat iron on longer hair!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Shauni: It's just 1 heat setting. And it depends on your texture. Frizzy, curly hair needs more heat than straight hair!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Your tutorials have made my hair look sooo much better! I feel like you're sitting on my shoulder helping me style my hair each morning :) One question- after I tease, my hair tends to look more helmet-y than piece-y. I'm blaming it on my hairspray... what do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi Kate!
    So I really want that Redskin smoothing serum, but I'm in Wilmington and my hair stylist is in Raleigh... is buying it off of Amazon just as bad as getting it at a store in town (I read that blog of yours!)

    Maybe I should just try a salon around here and see if they sell it?

    ReplyDelete
  14. You make it look so easy. :) I've got to try this on my little girls' hair, since they have shoulder length. Great tips, as always!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thanks for another great tutorial, I can't wait to try it! You've mentioned before that you blow dry your hair upside down, do you blow dry it all the way dry that way? Do you ever round brush your hair? I can't seem to break the round brushing habit.

    ReplyDelete
  16. After i blow dry my hair it is lik a huge poof ball[it's curly and holds a lot of water, that's the best way i can describe my hair]. So i us chi silk infusion to make it smooth and not a gigantic poof. But its kind of greasy. Would Redken Real Control Slim Supreme be the same type of product? only better and less greasy?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Kate, I'm so inspired by your videos! I have thick curly hair that I never do anything with except put mousse in and let it dry.Thanks to you, I have cut it about your length and started straightening it. I'm having a lot of trouble with the part and the bangs. Can you help me with that. My part needs serious help! Thanks girl

  18. I am so glad I found you through Pintrest! I love seeing your hair tutorials, and look forward to many more! You now have a new subscriber. :]

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just want to say you are a God send! Watching your tuturials has been a life saver! I have 'wavy' hair and trying to straighten it in the Kansas humidity is a killer! NOw I know what products to use...helps a ton!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love this style! What type of root lifter do you use on your hair?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love the volume! I am a huge believe that the more volume the better. Too pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love this look! Maybe you could get a friend who has shorter hair and do a tutorial on her. My hair style is similar to yours, but shorter lengths.
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hi Kate,
    Love your blog! I'm curious...do you ever blow dry with a round brush for the same effect?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Kate, can you recommend a decent flat iron that maybe isn't as much as the GHD? Not sure I want to make that big of an investment just yet, but wouldn't mind trying this out.

    ReplyDelete
  25. How do you use your flat iron at the roots, but not have the crease? Every time that I use the flat iron at my roots I seem to make a crease or dent. Is there a way to fix it?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your hair teases like nobody's business! Love it as always.

    I did another one of your styles today.

    Got the Kenra PINK at Ulta yesterday with a coupon. Deal.

    The weather lately here in the Triangle has been hair divine. Rain comes tomorrow...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I just spent a big portion of my evening watching a bunch of your tutorials. I am excited to do my hair tomorrow!

    (I'm a little concerned because my hair is very thick. No need for extra volume here!)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lori: could very well be the hairspray. Try Kenra Volume 25!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Andrea: I do blow dry all the way. But if round brushing works for you, great! You can get a lot of lift that way!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Bridget: yes! Try Redken Slim Supreme

    ReplyDelete
  31. Diane: I wish I could but a cheapeer flat iron really won't do the same things a quality one will. Sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Tara: it might be a hair texture thing. Make sure as soon as you press the flat iron closed, you move it. And you mght be pressing too hard.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi Kate, I love all your hair styling tips and would like to know where I could find Aquage Uplifting Foam? I live in Atlanta and have been looking, but no luck so far in finding it. Right now I use Kenra Boosting Spray-Foam and I would like to try something different.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am one of those quick, try to run my flat iron through huge sections of hair people you talk about in this video. And I wondered why my hair never looked right? ;)

    So, yesterday I followed this tutorial and guess what? I had a rockin' hair day!! Thank you, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  35. How does you hair manage to stay looking so healthy without breakage even though you use a flat iron or curling iron all the time? Is it b/c of the products you use? And do you really notice a difference in this style vs the bouncy curled under when it is humid? Either one for me would fall flat. Those are my natural wavy days!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Try taking biotin. I purchase it at GNC. I'm 47 years old and color my hair once a month. I use a high watt blow dryer ( one and only Brazilian tech keratin blow dryer... <3!!). I wash, blow out and curl or flat iron my hair every single day. Since taking the biotin my hair has become softer, silkier and I am losing less of it down the drain! It's not expensive and definitely worth trying!!

  36. Great tutorial! I have a hard time getting 'body' to my hair- I am going to check out the products you use.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I just discovered your blog and I am so glad I did! I have watched several of your tutorials and they are fantastic and they have helped me so much already! The best thing I have learned is about Aquage. What a fantastic product! Thanks for all of your help!

    ReplyDelete
  38. NicoleM: Read my "Products I use on a Daily Basis" post to see the products I use!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Kate love the blog by the way. I have a question, I have started looking into getting some Aquage and it's not easy to find! I have found a few places that carry it but I have more thin and fine hair will Aquage be good for my kind of hair or will it just weight it down too much?

    Thanks!
    Lori

    ReplyDelete
  40. Kevin and Lori: it shouldn't weigh your hair down at all. So give it a try!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thanks! I found it on Amazon for $13.40 is a that an average price for it?

    Thanks,
    Lori

    ReplyDelete
  42. Lori: Thats actually a bit cheap. Usually it's around $17.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sorry- I don't think I made my question clear. Do the products you use daily keep your hair from getting damaged/breaking even though you flat iron or curl your hair every day? My hair is also blonde and kind of fine, so I find that if I curl it or flat iron it every day that my hair seems to break. I am starting to use the products you use, so should I expect my hair to be able to handle the styling a little better?

    ReplyDelete
  44. looks great girl!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Nicole: Yes, they keep my hair strong and conditioned so it won't break! Every texture is different, so I would think that these products will help keep your hair strong and healthy, but if your hair is finer and more susceptible to damage, you may need to add a deep conditioner or heat protector to your routine!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi Kate! What a great blog you have! I am now following via Southern Lovely. I am your newest follower; and I hope you will follow me, too! Blessings to you!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Kate....loving your blog (and your hair, of course). I'm curious (and I apologize if you've already answered this same question)....how would you describe your hair type? Mine is very fine but I have plenty of it. When your hair is styled, it looks plentiful and thick but in this flat-ironing tutorial, it looks similar to mine and I was just curious.

    My Aquage just came in the mail today....I'm so excited. (They should be sending you a commission check, by the way. : ))

    ReplyDelete
  48. Kelley: Hi! Glad you got Aquage! Enjoy it!

    I would describe it as a lot of medium/fine hair. Not thick, not thin. Sort of medium. :)

    And the volume is all aquage! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Kate: Love, love, love your tutorials and pictures. My hair looks so much better since I started using the Aquage. I can see why you love it! (My hair is blonde, and very similar to yours, but no bangs!) I'm hoping with practice I can get some of these hairstyles to work for me.
    Thanks!!!! Can't wait to see what tutorial you post next!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I wanted to tell you that I used this technique on my hair and it turned out beautifully! Where have you been all my life?

    Thank you!

  51. kate,
    thoughts on the chi straightener?

    jen :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. JenAdele: If you have a Chi and it works, great. If you are looking to buy one, don't! They are cheaply made and seem to break quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I just found your blog last night! I think you're going to be my hair guru from now on :-) I have fine stick straight hair, similar to you, and I always thought I should stay away from flat irons, but it seems to really help you with lift at the roots and volume. Can you recommend a "beginner" flat iron that may not cost as much as the GHD? I see that CHI is not recommended.. so just wondering! Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Stacey: try a Cricket. They are not nearly as powerful as a GHD, but you may get a similar effect to my hair with it. Keep the receipt and return it if you don't like it!

    ReplyDelete
  55. One more questions - have you reviewed/tried the InStyler rotating iron? My friend swears by it, and since I'm looking for more of a lift/volume from a flat iron, she suggested the InStyler. I'm a little leary though of some of the reviews I've read online - it's 50/50 love/hate, so I'm just not sure if I want to spend the money on it, and instead just go for the GHD. ANy thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh my word. I stumbled upon your blog last night after perusing Pinterest, and found this tutorial. I'm growing out a short style, so it's just now getting to my shoulders, and I have some wonky layers to work with. I watched the tutorial and did everything you said to do this morning, and viola! My hair looks AMAZING! Seriously. It's never looked like this. Thank you!!

    P.S. I didn't have any root lifter, so I used Michael O'Rourke "Get a Lift" volume spray at my roots as you did with your Aquage. It worked great!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Stacey: I'm skeptical of the InStyler. I think it is kind of limiting. If you want a good flat iron, GHD is the way to go! Or Cricket--for something less expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Does teasing break/damage your hair? Is it difficult to comb out afterwards? I love the tousled/teased look but I'm afraid it'll make my hair a knotted mess (it's long but layered)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi Kate! I posted this question, now I cant find it or figure out what page it was on...so here goes again...
    I wash my hair at night and sleep with it wet/damp, then blow dry and flat iron in the mornings.
    When should I apply Aquage? at night? or rewet in the AM and apply it in the mornings???

    Thanks,
    {Mom of 2}

    ReplyDelete
  60. @Tightsandtea: As long as you don't rip through your hair when combing out the teasing you should be fine!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Thank you for all of the great tutorials you do! They are amazing and you have inspired me and have given me the knowledge to do more then a ponytail! My husband and I thank you ;p

    ReplyDelete
  62. I would also like to know if you think applying the aquage at night would work. If I blow-dry afterwards and then maybe blow dry for a couple minutes in the morning to reactivate the product, do you think it would be effective. I know the only way to know is try but I wasn't sure if you have ever attempted this?

    I just found your blog by accident really, but I'm addicted! :) I live in NC and have family in Raleigh so that makes it even more interesting! :) Thanks for your hard work keeping this blog going, I am really enjoying learning new tricks!

    ReplyDelete
  63. @Jessica L: it won't be nearly as effective by doing it that way. You can try it, but I don't think you'll get the same results!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thank you so much! I wear a ponytail every day and have for years. I just didn't know what to do with it. Now, I do and so excited to try this!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I just went and did this! I used my daughter's one inch CHI iron and it worked fine. Where I was going wrong was straightening straight down, instead of to the side or up....huge difference! Thank you for taking time to do these videos. I watched several and pinned them on Pinterest.Com.

    ReplyDelete
  66. btw...I just read above about the CHI iron. I'll never buy another. My daughter is on her third one and only reason being, we took back the other two after they broke and the store replaced them! I had saved the boxes. You are right, they do not last.

    ReplyDelete
  67. This has been such a huge help for my hair! i tried it today and it looks amazing. no need to tease a ton anymore. thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I couldn't find the video of how you did your bangs. And my bangs need some help. Thanks!

  70. First of all I love your Blog. I have never read a blog before and I have spent days on yours. LOL. My question is - do you wash your hair everyday? I wash mine every other day to keep it from getting too dry. I worry that if I use the Aquage, my hair will be hard to deal with on the day that I do not wash it. Any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  71. @Anonymous: Yes, I do wash everyday. I use a LOT of product so I need a fresh start every morning. You may actually like aquage the 2nd day. . .it could give some great texture!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm going to try this tomorrow, you make it look so easy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I am AMAZED at how great you are at doing your hair!! I have superfine naturally curly hair and right now LOTS of growing back from having children...so I tend to keep my hair short as I have a tough time getting it to look cute when it grows out. But I would die to have beautiful mid-length or longer hair like yours. I am wondering if you have come across people who just simply need to keep their hair shorter to get the volume to look attractive, or whether your hairstyling techniques would work for everybody?

    ReplyDelete
  74. @Romeril: sometimes shorter is easier to work with for certain textures. But you may be able to do some of my tutorials depending on how long your hair is?

    ReplyDelete
  75. Love your blogs! Do you use the Aquage every day, even if you are flat ironing? I have only found one salon locally that sells the aquage. Could you tell me what an average price on what you pay where you live? Also where would I purchase a ghd? thanks so much :-)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I have found lots of websites selling GHD. What model would you reconmend, I have medium/thick hair?

    ReplyDelete
  77. @anonymous: Yes, I use it everyday! It's about $17-19 here and you can buy a GHD through your stylist or some people have been finding them online!

    ReplyDelete
  78. @Kim: I use the GHD Classic! And that would work for you!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Oh wow,
    your hair looks SO healthy!
    It's just beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Thank you so much for all the videos. I watched flat iron straight last night and applied just a few of the tricks this morning (I was in a time crunch) and couldn't believe the difference in my hair. I had realized lately that I was making so many mistakes when I fixed my hair every day, but I didn't know what to change. I've learned so many new tricks already, and I envision many more good hair days in the future. Thank you for the time and effort you put into these videos - I certainly appreciate it!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Thank you so much for this blog Kate you have changed the way I do my hair - for all styles! I read the entry about how to curl your hair with a curling tong and went and ordered the 1" instead of the 1 1/4"...do you think I will get similar results?

    We don't have Aquage here in Australia but another volumising mousse I bought works wonders...how did I not know this earlier?? Thank you so much you are a gem!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh and one more thing....is it necessary to dry your hair upside down? I'm wondering if that creates more lift?

    ReplyDelete
  83. I have a lot of very thick hair, about your same cut but about 3 inches longer. I tried doing this about a week ago, and it looked pretty good, but definitely as much awesome volume as you get.

    So, then I went to Sephora and invested in a GHD (I got the New Wave model). It's magical. Oh my gosh. The best thing to happen to my hair. I also got Living Proof heat protectant, and it's super.

    I do think I want to try this with aquage, though. I usually use a leave in conditioner or moroccan oil because my ends get dry, but I want to see it with a serious root pumper-upper.

    ReplyDelete
  84. KylieGuest: Yes, it will be similar!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Loved the video thanks so much. I have been trying to master this style and am not getting much lift. I will try your technique and hope for "higher" success!

    ReplyDelete
  86. This is wonderful! and makes me feel so much better about myself..LOL I just started using a straightening iron a few months ago and just LOVE the look. I HATED my hair before. But, b/c I have a terrific hairdresser :P, she taught me how to straighten my hair. I will NEVER go back to what I had. So easy to maintain and I'm grateful b/c I wanted a "longer" look anyways. This worked perfectly for me! Your tutorial is awesome!! I've learned some new tricks and I really appreciate you going to the trouble of making these videos. God Bless you!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Thanks so much for all of these tutorials! I stumbled onto your blog from a Pinterest post and wound up spending all afternoon watching them and trying them out on my own hair. Didn't have any product but just getting the right ideas on which way to roll the sections around my face was a huge help. Looking forward to more :)

    Dear Kate - I just wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you put into making these videos. You've help me take my style to a whole new level. I did this Flat Iron Straight tutorial to a "T" and it worked out perfectly. Also, The Aquage Uplifting foam is God sent. I really can't believe how much it helps your hair "stay" and not go flat. If someone is hesitant on trying it, I know salons sell it in sample sizes. It's a must have in your style arsinal. :)

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I have the hugest need to get that Aquage uplifting foam now - I wonder if the company has noticed a spike in their sales :) Question about it - I watched the video on the Aquage website and was kind of shocked at how much they use. Can you tell me how much you usually use? They had just about covered the models head with it!

    Love your blog and videos - thank you for sharing your expertise.

  91. Hey do you have any tips on styling side swoop bangs with cow-licks?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hi Kate, I absolutely love your hair! I am actually getting your same haircut. I have watched most of your tutorials and read the products you use. You mentioned that for fine/medium hair to use Aquage uplifting foam. I have thick brown hair and it is even thicker now because I am pregnant. However, my hair does not have much volume and is just plain dull. Would the Aquage work with my hair as well or would I need something different? Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hi- I am addicted to you blog! I have very long hair and plan on getting a major cut soon, so your blog has come in handy. I haven't been able to find the Aquage anywhere locally....do you have any recommendations for other products that work as well?
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I think you just changed my life. I got bounce for the first time using my straight iron! Also--I love the Aquage foam. It's been my fave one so far. I found all your stuff on Pinterest and am learning quite a bit. Thanks!!

  96. Hi Kate, my hair is long and kind of thick. How would I get the volume that you have? As I straighten my hair it basically goes flat even if I use the root pump spray (big sexy hair root pump) and I use a CHI flat iron.. What am I doing wrong? Is there anything I can do?

My layers are shorter then my bangs and I don't even know how to explain it! It's been a while but it's not growing out any either and when they cut bangs for me they cut like way back into the rest of my hair? Any helpFul information?

  100. Hi Kate!I love these videos.I haven't been able to do anything with my hair since trying to let it grow out.For curly hair do you have any tips on how to make my hair actually straighten?I have been having a really hard time especially around my face due to "baby hair" as my stylist calls them.Lately they just want to stick straight out no matter how hard I try to blend them with the rest of my hair.Thanks!~Tori

    ReplyDelete
  101. Love your videos. My hair is thinning out bad. I am taking prenatals & Biotin and using Nioxin products. Any other suggestions???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would actually suggest Ovation Hair Care. You buy it online and it's a little on the pricey side, but when my hair was falling out - price didn't matter. It took about 2 months for me to notice a difference because all of a sudden I had a ton of 2" baby hair standing straight up (yes, it was funny looking)! I take biotin daily and I had to quit prenatals bc they actually caused my hair to break (weird, huh?)! Eat a lot of protein, I realized once my diet was well balanced that helped a lot to! Good luck!

  102. Kate! Love your hair!!! I have a quick question: Do you use the aquage uplifting foam when your hair is wet (before you blow dry) or after it is dry (right before you style it)? THANKS!!!!

    1. I'm no professional, but I can recommend something from my experience. I have thick wavy/curly hair and I found that "straight sexy hair smooth and seal" by sexy hair works really well for helping me straighten my hair. It really helps take the work out for me. The only down side is it seems to hang in the air when you spray it. So I always spray it over by the shower and then walk over to my bathroom sink. Otherwise I feel like I'm in a cloud of product. I can't remember how much it costs right now but I get the big bottle and it last me forever. I hope this helps. I know how it can be trying to find something good for stubborn curly hair.

  124. The video tutorial for this is SO great! One question though...what do you suggest for people who wash their hair at night and style it the next morning? Should I still use the Aquage at night even though I let my hair air dry?

  125. When you blow dry your hair upside down, do you brush it or anything? Or do you just apply the lifting foam and blow dry upside down?

  126. This is one of the few tutorias of yours that I've never watched, because I assumed that I didn't need to! After watching it's so helpful! Especially since I just cut my hair around the length that it is in this video!

  132. I've been following you for over a year and just wanted to THANK YOU for helping me with styling my hair. I, like you, have very straight hair and it was short like yours so I feel we've been on the same hair journey in a way. But yes, thank you for all the style advice!
