Utilize a wash and care system that ensures smooth hair. For this, we look to Love Beauty and Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner because the formula leaves you with smooth, frizz-free hair.

Step 2: Prime hair before heat styling.

Sleek is the name of the game so priming hair with products that will give you said results is the key. Use TRESemmé Get Sleek Blow Dry Balm before drying and flat ironing your strands.

Step 3: Flat iron in small sections.

Slow and steady wins the race, but not too slow. When flat ironing your hair, consider working in small sections to that every strand of hair has a straight and smooth finish. In polished bob hairstyles, there is absolutely no room at all for any frizz or texture.

Step 4: Apply a shine serum.
