For the past few years, K-Beauty has taken over the world with the "glass skin" look. This beauty trend prompted the comeback of glossy lip and eye make-up, which was prevalent during the '90s.
Now, this glass look is also fast becoming a popular hairstyle trend. Like the other K-Beauty looks, glass hair is all about high-shine finish that mimics glass and reflects light from every angle.
A lot of celebrities—from Hollywood A-listers to K-drama superstars—are opting for sharp cut, straight, and silky hairstyles with an ultra-shine finish.
It's quite easy to duplicate this look without having to resort to expensive salon treatments.
Here are four easy steps to get that "glass hair" look right in the comfort of your home.
STEP 1: CLEAN YOUR HAIR THOROUGHLY
Wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner before you begin styling it. Use hydrating products.
Since glass hair is all about the high-shine finish, it's impossible to achieve this if your hair is dull, frizzy, and dry.
STEP 2: BLOW DRY YOUR HAIR
Glass hair is all about super-straight strands that reflect light. To achieve this, you'll need to blow dry your hair before styling it.
Blow drying can also decrease the moisture content of your hair. Turn the heat down once your hair starts drying to minimize the damage on your hair.
STEP 3: FLAT IRON IN SMALL SECTIONS
After the blow dry, straighten your hair using a flat iron. You should do this in small, fine sections to get the smoothest finish possible.
STEP 4: USE THE RIGHT PRODUCTS
To achieve that megawatt shine, apply a pea-sized amount of hair serum (for those with fine hair) or a quarter-sized amount (for those with thicker hair) starting from your hair tips.
You can use Mise En Scene Perfect Serum Original, which is available at Watson's for PHP559.
Heat up the serum first by rubbing thoroughly through your palms before applying.
Also, it's important to distribute the serum evenly on your hair.
Applying the serum on the roots or the scalp can make your hair look oily.
Instead, focus on the tips because this portion of your hair is undernourished.
