3 Flat Iron Tips to Elevate your Hairstyling Skills

Thursday, 03 October 2019 10:13

People love the polish of flat ironing, but sometimes it can create hair that doesn’t want to move, hence the term “broomstick ends.” 

Andrew Carruthers, Education Director for Sam Villa, suggests using diagonal sections, a low and slow pass and a slight bevel for polished hair that is shiny and bouncy. Check it out:

Diagonal Sections
Using diagonal sections helps to create a very polished finish while maintaining movement in the hair. Horizontal sections create flat sheets that lay over each other, where as diagonal sections (especially with a bevel) create sheets that fall on a diagonal so they move much better.

Low and Slow Pass
Low temperature with a slow pass or high temperature with a fast pass? Low and slow will produce more even results because it allows the heat to distribute more thoroughly throughout the section. Click here to watch the video!

Beveling
To avoid broomstick ends or a deflated look, create a slight bevel through the hair with the Sam Villa Signature Series Sleekr Professional Straightening Iron. Comb through hair and insert comb at the top of the section and trail it with the iron closed while creating a “C” shape through the midstrand straight through the ends. This slightly bevels the hair and closes the cuticle creating nice movement with polished ends. Click here to watch the video!
