It widely accepted that straight hair is manageable, easy to style and generally quite well behaved. To an extent this is true, but not always. Straight hair, especially fine hair, can have a habit of losing its shape and style more easily than other hair textures. This makes styling a straight haircut seem a little harder than styling a different hair type.

There is one universal method that works for just about every hairstyle out there, especially straight fine hair: accessorizing!

Make a statement

Headpieces are a great way to add extra detail to your look with no more effort than it takes to lift them onto your head. Just like when you get bangs cut in, a headband can totally change your hairstyle, giving it a whole new lease of life.

There are a lot of different headpieces to choose from, including floral headbands, ribbons and even 1950's style headscarves!

Embrace the sleek

If your hair is naturally sleek, it can be a lot easier to embrace what you've got rather than trying to change it. Translation: if you're in a rush, don't use up all your time styling your hair into big waves when your hair's natural style is just as good. Just about all hair accessories compliment a smooth straight texture. In fact, sleek hair creates a bit of a blank canvas, helping the accessories to really stand out.

Having said that, sleek hair can also create a super elegant look that doesn't fade into the background either!

Styling tip: For a super smooth finish, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray from roots to ends. This will instantly make hair appear sleeker while protecting against frizz and taming flyaways.

FYI, headbands are also ultra-practical for hiding bad hair days and unwashed roots... what's not to love?
