At the 2006 Emmys, Ellen Pompeo opted against a fancy and stereotypical red-carpet hairstyle and instead sought a super-sexy, simple-yet-sleek coif. She wasn’t alone: Kate Walsh and Mariska Hargitay also bucked tradition and opted for a chic, elegant look with flat, bone-straight or slightly bumped tresses as well. Fortunately you don’t need $1,000 and a celebrity hairstylist at your beck and call to attain this look. It’s easy to get a smooth and shiny stick-straight salon-style blowout right in the comfort of your own home. —India-Jewel Jackson
First, coat your damp hair
with a spray-on heat
protector.
Next, blow-dry hair
completely straight
with a round bristle
brush.
Generously
apply a
straightening
balm and flat
iron hair in
small sections.
Lastly, for a silky and
sleek coif, apply a
lightweight finishing
serum to add shine and
keep hair from frizzing.
