I have naturally wavy/curly hair that I often straighten using a blow dryer and/or a flat iron. While I think both hairstyles are appropriate for a professional context, keeping it straight works better for my time constraints. If I wear my hair natural I spend more time styling it daily.

I straighten my hair for interviews for a polished look. How about you?
My mom is a hairdresser so I have gone through my share of blow dryers and flat irons and I like trying new ones. Right now I am using a T3 Featherweight and I am hooked on my GHD, which I bought after learning (the hard way) that the Chi does not have universal voltage.

The GHD is great because the 1" barrel can get very close to your scalp and straighten the shortest of pieces. I did not use any of my usual heat protectant spray or anti-frizz and volume enhancing products but I found that the GHD alone was good for adding shine and eliminating frizz. Although the GHD hairstyling alone looks seemingly fine without an initial blowout I prefer to straighten my hair beforehand unless I want it to look that flat.
