One of the advantages of having straight hair is that you can manage to get that glamorous looking top sleek bun with ease. The longer your hair, the better your bun will look. You will still need a serum like the TIGI Bed Head Control Freak Frizz Control And Straightener Serum to get that stunning shine and tame flyaways. Spread it all over your hair before gathering hair on top of your head to get this straight hairstyle.

Another way to style your straight hair this holiday season is with a ponytail. It’s no ordinary ponytail, part it on the side and gather your hair at the top of your hair to get a high ponytail. Go ahead and curl your hair to add more volume to your mane.

Short hair is trending right now with several celebrities chopping off their long tresses to embrace shorter haircuts during the lockdown. An asymmetrical bob looks particularly gorgeous on straight hair.

Bent waves are so huge right. One scroll through Instagram and you’ll know what we’re talking about. Simple to achieve, this gorgeous hairstyle looks equally stunning on both, long and short hair. Add soft curls to the mid-lengths of the hair using a flat iron and leave the top and tips untouched for a glam look.

Straight hair and braids are a match made in heaven. Tie a loose braid or a tight one like Kriti Sanon’s and it will still look gorgeous. If you haven’t braided your long, straight locks in a long time, try it because we know you will definitely fall in love with it. Go for a classic three-strand or a beautiful fishtail — the sky is the limit.
