Prep your hair.

Section and straighten.

After that, you can section off your hair and begin the straightening process. Use hair clips to hold the top sections of your hair away from the area you’re working on. Then grab your straightener and slowly pass over small sections of hair. Hold for an extra quick second when you get to the ends to seal in that polished edge.
