1. Chin-length bob

Keep your bob straight by ironing your hair once it has dried. Don’t forget to spray heat protectant on your hair first. Iron the tips of your bob inwards get rid of fly aways and let your short straight hairstyle frame your face.

TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist

Editor’s tip: Spray TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist on your hair before using a flat iron or blow dryer to prevent heat damage.

This ‘do is not just for men; women can sport it as well. The bowl cut adds an edgy and grunge-y feel to your look. If you love androgynous styles, you can give the bowl cut a try.

3. Pixie cut

Naturally straight hair is less prone to frizz and unwanted volume. For some women with naturally straight hair, a pixie cut can pretty much be a wash-and-wear ‘do (how lucky!). When you want to spice things up, you can style your pixie cut to add a bit of volume and texture.

TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax

Editor’s tip: Spritz a small amount of TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your palms and scrunch through your hair for added texture and definition.

4. Straight bob with bangs

Blunt bangs give your look a high-fashioned twist. Look sleek and sophisticated by blow drying your bangs right away after towel drying. Letting fringe dry on its own is a hair disaster waiting to happen. Apply hair serum to the rest of your hair to keep frizz at bay.

TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Say goodbye to greasy bangs. Combat excess oil on your fringe with TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo

5. Layered bob

Layers can keep short straight hairstyles from looking flat while maintaining a polished look. If you have thick, straight hair, a layered ‘do will help distribute the volume. Keep hair nourished and moisturized by applying leave-on conditioner before stepping out of the house.

Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream

Editor’s tip: A small amount of Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream can go a long way in keeping your tresses moisturized. Its light and non-sticky formula won’t weight down your hair.
