Believe it or not, stick straight hair is back in style. So get your dusty flat iron out of storage and make sure it is in working condition for Spring. We've already seen tons of straight hair on the Fall runways [1] and now again at the Oscars [1] from Gwyneth Paltrow [1], Nicole Kidman [1], Reese Witherspoon [1], Ellen Pompeo, Kelly Preston [1] and Zizi Zhang. Here are some new products that can help you achieve your own Oscar winning look.

Oscar Blandi Raffinata Pure Straight [2], $19, is a balm designed to smooth out any type of hair without weighing it down. It acts as a straightening agent by deeply penetrating into the cuticle of your hair as well as provides protection against heat damage caused from styling tools.

Simply rub a dime sized amount into your hands and rub evenly all over your towel-dried hair beginning from the ends and working your way up toward your roots. Then, blow dry hair straight. You will notice this product significantly reduces your drying time!

For one more straightening product,

Frédéric Fekkai Straight Away [3], $17.50, is a featherweight styling balm that helps to achieve straight hair when blow drying.

Even if your hair is naturally wavy or curly, it will help relax your hair instantly. It washes out - so it's perfectly safe for permed hair...and since it's made from pure botanicals, it smells delicious!
