The trick to perfectly imperfect straight hair!

Beauty Quickie: Perfect, imperfect straight hair

Lucky Magazine editorial assistant Jenna Gottlieb has managed and enviable, silky, shine-intensive look that balances gorgeously between done and undone. Here, her five steps to not-quite-perfection.

1. Conditioning Prep
While my ends are still damp, I spritz this on to avoid frizz and add general sheen.

2. Quasi-Blow-Dry
I dry only my roots and some shorter/face-framing pieces. I let the rest of my hair air-dry – to keep some natural wave.

3. Strategic Flat-Ironing
I use this iron sparingly throughout my hair to eliminate flyaways, straighten awkward, stubborn pieces, and create an overall smooth but non stick straight texture.

4. Styling Cream
I run just a dime-size amount through the lower half of my hair. This one is light and shine-boosting and it smells so, so good.

5. Sleep
My hair is always better the next day.
