Girls love to brush their hair until it shines. Yet with the zeitgeist for lived-in looks, disheveled textures, and trendy tousle it’s easy to forget the power of a straight styles to bring drama, brilliance, radiance and glister. Happily, Mila Kunis is holding the fort for the beauty of scintillating straight hairstyles. Notice how her part is very slightly off of center; this is a smart move because unless your profile is perfectly symmetrical, and that’s unlikely, a perfect center-parting splits the face right down the middle, which is too severe for almost all of us. There’s a lot more we can learn about creating straight styles like Mila’s; get some starters in the style notes.


Step: To recreate a similar style, towel dry hair to damp. Apply a little set & style spray at roots –– for lift and shine –– and apply shine luxe oil from mid-lengths to ends –– for a super sleek blowdry.

Step: Center-part hair just off of center. Blowdry roots to ends on high heat with boar bristle round brush, allowing the air flow of the dryer to follow the path of the brush.

Step: Use a straightening iron to iron-out any kinky bits. A good tip is to mist a little protective thickening lotion onto any kink, and then press flat with the iron.
