Priyanka and Deepika are bringing back poker straight hair

Say hello to straightening irons and chafed fingers again

Forget all those curling tricks you painstakingly learned off those five-hour YouTube tutorial marathons; straight hair is back. It’s time to channel your inner Rachel Green and dig out your straightening iron from the very back of your closet. Bollywood’s best are going the poker straight way which, of course, means that soon everyone else will too.

Priyanka Chopra recently put in a glittery appearance at the Brady Bear Awards in a blingy Vivienne Westwood number paired with the lushest J Mendel jacket. However, it was her pin-straight tresses that had everyone talking. A little closer home, Deepika Padukone collected her International Star of the Year trophy at the Esquire Awards in a tuxedo-inspired Monsiha Jaising suit and an ironed-out do.

The good news? Straight hair isn’t high-maintenance in the winters, transforms into beautiful second day hair with a slight hint of wave and doesn’t require you to juggle five different types of serum and leave-in at the same time. For those constantly on the go, the Dafni Hair Straightening Brush should sort you out. It works its way through knots and tangled curls, heats up to 185 degrees in seconds and keeps the frizz in check.
