On such occasions that we want to rock the stick-straight look, we depend on this hairdresser-approved flat iron to take us into Cher-circa-1972 territory. The ceramic plate iron heats up to five temperature settings and is suitable for use on all hair types, giving anyone who uses it seriously glossy, pin-straight locks.
