We're advocates of skipping the styling tools and working with our natural hair textures, but Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Nicki Minaj's super straight long strands are making a strong case for not completely breaking up with our flat irons.
Throughout the fall and winter, the trio have appeared on the red carpet with flyaway-free, waist-grazing hair that's part '70s Cher and part mermaid vibes. While the stars all make the chic style look effortless, in reality, mastering the art of smooth, sleek hair takes more than simply running a hair straightener over your mane.
Here, we've put together your complete product arsenal needed to achieve frizz-free straight hair.
