Step into the world of glass hair, where sleek, shiny locks are the ultimate goal. This trend, popularized by celebs like Kim Kardashian and Lucy Hale, is all about achieving a mirror-like finish for your hair. To help you understand and master this trend, we’ve consulted with renowned hairstylist Linda Miller, who shares her expert advice on this glossy look.

Understanding Your Hair Type and Face Shape

When it comes to glass hair, Linda advises that the most crucial factor is your hair type. “The look can be achieved on all hair textures, but it’s essential to consider the amount of time and maintenance that goes into achieving the look,” she explains. If your hair is naturally straight, the process will be much easier. However, if your locks are wavy or curly, you may need to spend more time using hot tools to get that sleek finish. This is also true for those with thick hair, as it may take multiple passes with a flat iron to achieve the desired result.

Choosing the Right Products

Linda emphasizes that the right products are key to achieving glass hair. “It all starts with the shampoo and conditioner,” she says. “Opt for a moisturizing or smoothing shampoo and conditioner to help lay the cuticle down.” She also advises using a leave-in conditioner or a smoothing cream to achieve a sleek finish. If your hair is prone to frizz, a lightweight oil can be used to smooth the hair and add shine.
