The Swingy-Sleek Hair

The idea here is basically straight, but with a bit of bend, a touch of bounce.
1. There are two ways to do this: Blow-dry and straight-iron, or air-dry and straight-iron. Either way, achieve perfection by ... being a perfectionist! Take your time!
2. Work blow-dry product into damp hair; use a paddle brush for the best finish.
3. Flat-iron hair in one-inch sections all the way around.
4. Spritz in shine enhancers or texturizers; go back in and fix any errant pieces. Finish with hairspray.
