Check out more for everything you need to know about straightening your hair. Let's break down what you'll need:
For pixie hair: ½" straightener ($9.99 on Amazon). Its plates are small enough to grab onto your hair without burning you, plus it's much easier to control when styling short, short tresses.
For short, fine hair: 1" straightener ($25.96 on Amazon). It's sleek enough to control with ease while styling shorter hair, but still long enough to quickly cover your full head.
For shoulder-length, medium-thick hair: 1 ¼" straightener ($14.50 on Amazon). Its wide plates are built to quickly style medium-thick hair without applying *too* much heat. Aka it works faster than smaller straighteners, but won't overwhelm your hair.
For thick, curly, below-shoulder length hair: 1½" straightener ($29.99 on Amazon). It conquers frizz and covers wide widths of hair to a) make the process faster and b) easily control thicker hair.
For thick, very long hair: 2" straightener ($29.99 on Amazon). Its extra-wide plates streamline styling the thickest of thick hair without damaging it (thank you, ceramic technology).
