    perfectly straight hair, sans damage? it’s possible.

    by · January 24, 2013
    In middle school, everyone I knew straightened their hair (typically with a Hot Tools). But since then, most of us have turned our backs on the flat iron, with some looking down upon it like they would a spray tan. And then came the spring 2013 runway shows, and everyone from Rodarte to Michael Kors had us lusting for pin-straight hair and sleek, mess-free pony tails. Not wanting to bust out our decade-old iron or undergo any permanent straightening treatment, we went on a hunt for the latest and the greatest in flat irons. Here are our findings...
