Remember in 2004 when poker straight hair was the absolute goal? Rigid Regina George strands that were mercifully free from hairband kinks were the epitome of chic. Well, good news kids, because super sleek hair is back in vogue.
Of course, textured, boho waves and sexy tousled bedhead hair remain a solid option but straight hair is absolutely owning it, thanks to the rise of the glass hair trend (whose fans include Kim Kardashian, Jenna Dewan and Hailey Bieber).
The good news is, a decent pair of straighteners are exactly the sort of versatile tool that can offer up not only ultra straight strands, but also bestow laid-back waves at the flick of a wrist provided you've mastered the technique (if not, try this).
So, we've put together the best straighteners for all budgets. From different plate sizes to the greatest in hair technology, *these* are the top hair straighteners to take control over every strand.
P.S. DON'T forget to prep your hair with a heat protection spray first!
