How to: Achieving the “Glass Hair” Look

Don’t worry, this isn’t some wild hair trend that actually incorporates glass into your style. The term “glass hair” simply describes a glass-like, shiny style. Due to the megawatt shine, this hairstyle nearly resembles a mirror.

So you want to try the trend? A new haircut is the first step. More geometric hair cuts, like the bob, will show off this style better. Also, let your Scottfree stylist know this is the effect you want so he or she can choose the appropriate hair tones and glosses. A clear gloss coat at the salon can help seal the cuticle and create shine.

If your hair is straight naturally with minimum frizz, rough dry it until it’s all the way dry. But if your hair is curly or prone to frizz, do a complete blow dry first to help smooth out hair.

After drying, smooth out locks with your flat iron and coat with a shine serum (try Sachajuan Shine Serum) to give a silky finish.
