Undone waves and barely-there bends are gracing the headlines as some of the top styles to wear this season. How to get the look? Put down the curling iron and reach for a straightening iron instead. Giving you the pro tools to create fashion-forward results, top stylist, Sam Villa, co-founder of Sam Villa® and Global Artistic Ambassador for Redken 5th Avenue, designed his Pro-Results Straightening and Shaping Iron for salon-quality smoothness and shiny waves and curls, created right at home!  Every detail from the snag-free plates to the color-treated temperature setting is designed to make heat styling easy, fun and fast! 

How to Create Flat Iron Curls: 

  • Apply heat protectant and comb through.
  • Grab a section of hair and twist iron 180 degrees away from the face.
  • Let curls cool.
  • Pull hair from the back forward.
  • Don’t get too close to the scalp on top.
  • Shake it out.


How to Create Ruffle Waves with a Flat Iron: 

  • Apply heat protectant and comb through.
  • Start a few inches away from the scalp.
  • Insert a section of hair and rock the curved plates forward and back.
  • Finish with the ends going under to avoid hair from sticking out.
  • Start further out on the top section.
  • Bend face-framing layers away from the face.


What to Look for in a Pro Straightening and Shaping Iron:

  • Snag-free plates to prevent breakage and a tourmaline coating for that added salon-quality shine and smoothness. 
  • A ceramic heating element for even heat distribution and a slightly longer body for controlled compression with less fatigue.
  • Targeted Temperature Technology to maintain consistent heat without spikes and geared for specific hair types; Low – 375º for fine hair; Color Treated – 392º and High - 410º for virgin or highly resistant hair.

Creating professional quality tools that are ergonomic and maintain the integrity of the hair has always been at the forefront of this brand and “this iron was designed so guests can create salon-quality results at home with minimum effort,” says Villa.
