Get the Look: Pin Straight

When we spotted Rachel Bilson at the Brian Reyes show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Tuesday, we longed for shiny, pin straight hair, which managed to stay sleek and frizz-free despite temperatures in the 80s in NYC.

 As luck may have it, we caught up with our friends at Redken 5th Avenue later that same day who hooked us up with some straightening products. 

We tested out the new stuff today, and combined with my Paul Mitchell straightener, frizz and curls didn’t stand a chance!


Since I have coarse hair I applied Redken Power Tame 16 Intense Straightening Balm while it was still damp to protect it from heat damage. I blow dried my hair using these tips and fixed a few spots up with my flat iron. I followed with another product I’m addicted to, Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, to lock in shine. I acheived the skinny, straight look but my hair didn’t look weighed down or greasy.

If you have fine hair, Redken has a similar product that will work wonders for you: Sheer Straight 06 Lightweight Straightening Gel.
