Celeb Hairstyles to Steal: Straight Hair
Celebrities are the ultimate source for hair inspiration. They're constantly photographed, always look flawless and change up their hair styles on a regular basis. So, naturally, we've curated a list of our favorite celebrities rocking straight hair, including pixies and waist-length locks. You're bound to find a hairstyle here that satisfies your desire for sleekness.
Mix up your everyday hair with this slicked-back style rocked by Alicia Keys. The wet-hair look was trending on the Spring 2014 runways, and we're still not over it. Use a dab of hair gel to create this edgy look; just beware of going overboard and crossing into greaser territory.
Jessica Sanchez’s warm highlights add dimension to her long, blunt-cut locks. When adding highlights, make sure to blend well to avoid the early-2000s streaks.
Liven up long locks with lighter ends. Jennifer Hudson’s subtle ombré color gives her a natural glow. Really looking to shake things up? Test your dip-dying skills with teal or purple ends.
Add body to straight hair with a long blunt-cut bob, like Tia Mowry’s. Soft and subtle side bangs give the look dimension and movement. Amp up the volume with a spray—we love Redken Gut 10.
Taylor Swift pulls off the blunt bangs better than any human we’ve seen in recent years. If you’re considering making the cut, invest in the Drybar Buttercup blow dryer to fight frizz and a boar bristle brush to keep your bangs sleek.
Adding layers not only helps lift your hair, it adds a level of interest and a ton of movement to the look. We love Kacey Musgrave’s face-framing layers, and the caramel highlights are a beautiful finishing touch.
If we’re talking hair evolution, Rihanna is the queen. She’s had it all, including this super-straight and super-long ‘do. Be wary of going too long if your hair is thin, as it can begin to look stringy rather than sleek. Deep-condition once a week, and apply an essential oil to keep your ends healthy.
It was the haircut heard around the world—or watched, rather—when Anne Hathaway cut her locks for "Les Miserables." Though she initially had some qualms, she's kept the side-swept pixie and made it her look. Replicate the 'do with texturizing spray and a good tousle with your hands.
Gwyn is our go-to girl when we need straight-hair inspiration. Her middle part and just-below-the-shoulder cut make this look a classic that will never go out of style. Spritz on a shine spray to keep your locks luscious.
Give a classic bob an update with an asymmetrical cut. Rihanna rocked the sleek style a few years back, but we're still obsessed with it today. Make sure to keep the shorter side at least chin-length.
Let's be real: Every girl went through the side-swept bangs phase (and the inevitable awkward growing-out phase). Emma Stone proves that side-swept bangs can be elegant and adult.
When Miley shared a photo of her hair stylist with a pair of scissors to her topknot, we were ready to call the police and offer a ransom. But unlike some of the starlet's recent decisions, we are completely on board with her edgy platinum undercut.
Carey Mulligan can rock almost any haircut, but we especially love this super blonde, chin-length bob. Shine up your locks with oils for a sleek look, or add a texturizing spray and muss it up for a polished bed head.
