Video Alert! How To Use a Flat Iron on Men’s Short Hair

It can be challenging for men with coarse natural texture to get a nice smooth finish, but Andrew Carruthers, director of education for Sam Villa, suggests grabbing a flat iron.  It’s not just for ladies…it’s a fast convenient way to transform short, curly, coarse texture for a smoother more controlled finish.

I know most men think flat irons are just for the ladies, but they really need to get over that and realize it’s a great grooming tool that makes styling shorter hair so much easier,” says Carruthers.

How to Use a Flat Iron on Men’s Hair

– Plug iron in to heat up to appropriate temperature – the Sam Villa Signature Series Sleekr Professional Straightening Iron has three temperature settings – low, color-treated and high.
– Once iron is hot, take 1” sections and comb through to remove tangles.
– Place iron in hair and pass the iron over the section using light tension to prevent creases and to focus on the ends – target specific sections to define texture.
– Don’t overdo it! Maintain some bend in the hair to avoid the 90’s “boy band” look.
– Finish with favorite product.
