Trying on a trend: Straight hair

Every season, fashion gurus favour a certain hairstyle. This SS14 poker, stick hair straight will be topping the style charts. From Donna Karan and Elie Saab, hair was kept sleek, straight and accessorised with metal barettes. But, is this trend worth getting a complete and irreversible hair make-over?

Spring Summer 2014 beauty trends

To make my wavy hair straight, I have used John Frieda’s Smooth Start Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner and to calm the frizz I have used John Frieda’s Original 6 Effects serum. After blow drying my hair with a paddle brush, I straightened it with a straightener. I am amazed at the variety these products offer. It can be used on naturally wavy, curly or straight hair and the serum definitely does deliver what it promises–frizz free healthy hair.

I have used a wee bit of chap stick (as suggested by my blog friend Rachel Church of for fly-aways.


Whilst I love the “expensive” effect of poker straight hair; I would never actually go permanent with it. After spending an arm and a leg many moons ago and getting my wavy mane straightened, I have learnt from experience that poker straight hair does not suit me in the long run. But, yes I would not mind trying it once in a while. 🙂

My verdict: Trends keep coming and going and its best to celebrate what you have rather than changing your look completely. I love straight hair occasionally but I still prefer big, bouncy waves in the longer run. 🙂
