1. Flat Ironed Styles on Platinum Blonde Hair

Rather a look that allows your platinum hair color to speak for itself? Go for a simple flat-ironed style on a shoulder-length cut. When styling, be sure handle your color-treated hair with kid gloves. Protect your strands with a heat protectant, like TIGI Copyright Custom Create Heat Protection Sprayand flat iron your hair in small sections to prevent multiple passes on the same areas.
