If you have medium hair, the best way to make an elegant straight hair look is to start the hair routine by shampooing and conditioning the hair. Next, blow dry the hair until it is completely dry; using a blow dryer is recommended as flat iron on damp hair can destroy the texture of the hair. After the hair is blow dried, use a flat iron for straightening.
Once the hair is straightened, clip the hair on the crown and use a fine-toothed comb to section the hair. Use heated paddles above the comb and start the process of removing any curls by combing and flat ironing again through the length of the hair. Once you reach the hair end, use the comb to slightly curl the bottom.
This helps you get a slightly curled-under straight hairstyle that can look extremely elegant for evening. Finish the styling by using a hairspray or a shine serum that helps in holding the style and also prevents fly-aways. To add sparkle to your look, add hair accessories on to the hair.
