Pin-Straight Hair Ideas for New Year’s Eve

1. Pin-Straight Hair Bob

It’s no secret that bobs have continued to be a major hit all year round. For New Years Eve, opt for styling your bob haircut into a chic pin-straight hair look to celebrate the holiday. To acheive this look, wash hair with Suave Professionals Sleek Shampoo and condition with Suave Professionals Sleek Conditioner to start with a smooth base. Blow-dry or air-dry your hair, then use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray to flat iron your hair into this straight short hairstyle.

2. Pin-straight and pulled back

To achieve this sultry pulled pinned back look, getting your hair as pin-straight as possible is key. If you have highly textured hair, apply TRESemmé Thermal Creations Blow Dry Balm to clean your damp hair, then blow-dry. Follow up with a flat iron to get a smooth and super straight finish. Apply a fingertip amount of S Factor by TIGI Creamy Molding Wax onto the base of your hair (from your hairline to mid crown) for hold and to mold you hair into a sleek pulled-back look.

3. Pin-Straight Ponytail

Straight and super long ponytail hairstyles were a big hit on the red carpet during award season. So why not give the red carpet trend a go! To get the look, brush clean, straight hair with Ibiza OC7 Oval Flat Hair Brush to smoothen your hair. Then apply Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil  throughout your hair to add shine. Gather your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a hair elastic. For a much more formal touch, take a strand of hair from your ponytail, wrap it around the base of your ponytail and secure with a hair pin.
