The red carpet was once a place where updos ruled supreme, but this year’s laidback styles are all about loose hair with natural texture. Whether you have wavy, curly or pin-straight locks, you can achieve red carpet hair with CHI tools that perfect your natural beauty.
First Things First: Heat Protection
Before you use heat of any kind on your hair, it’s super important to start with a heat protectant. We like Alterna Caviar Repairx Multi-Vitamin Heat Protection Spray. This nourishing spray not only protects hair from heat up to 450 degrees, it restores hair with vitamins A, C and E, three powerful antioxidants.
For Added Volume
A boost of volume can take your style to the next level and really give it that glamourous, red carpet-worthy vibe. The CHI STYLE SERIES Ceramic Hair Dryer helps you achieve the perfect blowout by distributing heat evenly and guarding against frizz with Far Infrared technology. The included diffuser and concentrator attachments make this dryer suitable for all hair types—yes, even curly!
For Straight Hair
If you have straight hair, up its sleekness and shine with the CHI AIR EXPERT Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Hairstyling Iron 1” Extended Plate. Far Infrared heat distribution helps fight frizz at the root and keep static to a minimum so hair falls effortlessly in place. With its extra-long ceramic plates, this flat iron works especially well on long locks, and a quick, 30-second heat-up time means you can fit in an instant styling session.
For Wavy Hair
Add definition to those beautiful waves with the CHI AIR TEXTURE Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron 1.5”. This iron’s large barrel makes creating big, long-lasting waves quick and easy. Tourmaline Ceramic combines with Far Infrared technology to ensure a shiny, frizz- and static-free finish, and digital temperature control allows you to safely style thin, medium or coarse hair.
For Curly Hair
If you have curly hair, the CHI AIR TEXTURE Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron 1” is your best bet for creating face-framing spirals or shaping the occasional wayward curl into place. Since curly hair is often prone to dryness, this iron’s Far Infrared technology is a must—it keeps static, flyaways and frizz at bay and leaves hair with a shiny, silky finish.
