A curly hairdo can be turned into a sleek straight style. Flat ironing or blow-drying flattens the hair shaft, giving it a sleek look. Your stylist can also add a protective product to the tresses before styling them. A smooth, sleek look is a great way to transform a curly haircut into a mother of the bride design. In addition to adding an elegant look, a chignon can also be styled with beads or other embellishments.
