In Iron Man 3, Gwyneth Paltrow dons full strawberry locks with fringe to please her iron man, but in real life, her signature sleek blonde hair lays close to her head. Sam Villa, Founding Partner of the Sam Villa brand and Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue, has this styling tip for smoothing hair right down to the scalp without creating extra volume at the base.
· Apply a heat styling product like Redken iron silk 07 and place a fine-toothed comb underneath at the scalp area, with the teeth facing up and toward the body.
· Position the outside of the Sam Villa Signature Series SLEEKR iron on top of the teeth of the comb and slowly comb through the section with the outside of the iron on top of the comb.
The emanating heat from the casing of the iron smoothes hair close to the scalp area and adds incredible shine. It’s all about the slow pass, not the compression.
