The beauty industry keeps launching various products and gadgets to make beauty achievable for every woman. From blow dryers to cleansers to curlers, you’ll find a convenient solution for all your hair styling needs.

Among all the beauty industry inventions, one has been every woman’s saving grace – the flat iron. Since the 90s, flat irons have been the secret behind every woman’s sleek hairstyle at events. From weddings to parties to interviews, a flat iron has helped women sport sleek ponytails and straight hair.

However, if you need some hair straightening tips to perfect your look, we have got you covered. Here’s a list of flat iron tips and styles we’ve compiled so you can slay every look!

The Sleek Look

We’ve all seen celebrities hit the runway and red carpet with sleek, straight hair. Fortunately, you can pull that off with a flat iron! The straight look never goes out of style and can be worn at weddings, parties, and even for an interview.


Ensure your hair is blow-dried before you begin working with your flat iron. Next, partition your hair into paper-thin sections and straighten each section individually. Ensure you work one section at a time while clipping the rest of the hair.

Moreover, clamp the top of the strand between the flat iron and drag it downward; repeat this a couple of times over each strand until they’re dead straight. Set your hair with setting spray or serum to give it some shine, and voila! You’re good to go!

The Tap-and-Crimp Hair Look

If the flat iron sleek hair isn’t your go-to style for an event, spice it up with a bit of 70s glam! Go bold and rock a tap-and-crimp look. As challenging as this look may seem, it’s not. All you need to do is keep these tips in mind, and you’re ready to dazzle!


Start with a middle parting. Begin working on one side first, take a small section between your forefinger and middle finger, and pull your hair toward your head while creating a “C” shape.

Open the flat iron and follow an open-close notion onto the “C” shape your hair created. You’ll notice your hair will start crimping. Continue sliding your fingers down the strand and pull it toward your head until you’ve made an “s” bend. Keep repeating this until all your sections are crimped.

All you need to do is take a few strands of your hair and place them between the flat iron tongs. Once you’ve secured it, hold the flat iron by its end and twist it until you achieve a curl. Then slowly drag the flat iron downwards until the strand makes its way out of it. Repeat until all the sections are curled.
