Get the Look: Straight Hair is Back!

03/13/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Judging by the long, pin-straight hair that ruled the Oscar red carpet — Reese, Gwyneth and Nicole — we’re all going to be spending a lot of time juggling our hairdryers and round brushes. To speed up the process and avoid arm fatigue, use a lightweight hairdryer that works in half the time, like the T3 Bespoke Labs Featherweight Dryer, $200. To achieve Nicole Kidman’s sleek ‘do, stylist Chris McMillan applied Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum, $34, before and after blow-drying to fight frizz and add shine. And to ensure her hair was perfectly straight, McMillan finished it up with a FHI flatiron, $110. He called the final look “simple and elegant, with clean lines to accent the silhouette of her dress.” If you plan on using dryers and irons on a regular basis and want to maintain the health of your hair, be sure to use products that protect hair from heat and apply a deep conditioning treatment or mask on a weekly basis.

If you can’t afford the same products the stars use, here are a few that are hair and wallet friendly.

1. T-Studio Collection by Remington Active Ion, Tourmaline & Ceramic Flat Iron, $40 at

2. Conair ION Shine Double Ionic Turbo Styler, $33 at

3. John Frieda Reinforce Strengthening Triple Creme Masque, $5.00 at

Straight hair is back? I didn’t know it was ever out!

Frab on

Seriously- when did straight hair EVER go out of style?

Heather S. on

Sad! I just decided to stop straightening my hair after almost two years. Straight hair looks better when it’s healthy, but a flat iron can really fry your hair!

Elda on

straight!!! but to be honest she looks great in any hair style, just look at those blue eyes!!

Haha I don’t need to spend any money on straight hair how cool.

Her hair does look great, but all I see when I look at that picture is EYEBROWS.

Can someone tell me why Nicole Kidman always has her eyebrows like a million shades darker than her hair??? It looks so silly, she has blonde blonde hair and dark redish brown eyebrows!! I have very dark brown hair naturally and I swear my eyebrows aren’t even that dark.

“Straight Hair is Back” Where did it go in the first place? Straight hair has always been here, same for curly, and wavy and all aren’t going anywhere.
