We know you’ve seen it. Impossibly glossy, almost wet-looking, tresses are dominating the timeline these days. With mirror-like shine, “liquid hair” is quickly becoming one of the most coveted aesthetics. From Kim Kardashian to Zendaya, all our faves are pulling it off. All of this mane perfection has us wondering: how can we get in on this glam?
While many celebrities rely on keratin treatments in-salon to get the glass hair look, we’re breaking down how to get it at home. Super smooth strands are actually so simple.
Use Shine-Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner
It’s best to start with a clean slate for this sleek af look. Start with a high-hydration shampoo and conditioner. We recommend something along the lines of Olaplex’s No. 4 and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner. These powerful products re-link broken provides and enhance the overall health of your hair. Sealed split ends helps achieve that fluid-like look.
Blow Dry Straight
The secret to this aesthetic is definitely a frizz-free blow dry. Before you begin styling your strands, opt for an all-over spritz of an anti-static heat protectant. Ouai’s classic Heat Protectant Spray is an excellent option, with thermal polymers and prickly pear extract to protect your tresses from up to 450 degrees of heat.
Once you’ve prepped your mane, you blowdry your strands straight.

Flat Iron and Brush Through
Glass hair is so much simpler than we ever imagined. To get that impossibly-smooth, ultra-straight style, you’re going to need a top of the line straightener (like ghd’s Platinum+ Styler) and your go-to bristle brush. Take 1″-inch sections of your hair and iron straight, starting from the top. Position your brush right below your iron, brushing through as you straighten for the smoothest results.
Finish with a Spritz
Once your locks are perfectly straight, finish them off with a high-shine spray. Color WOW Dream Coat Supernatural Spray is perfect for this part – the lightweight serum combats humidity, protects color, and adds a finishing gloss for that liquid hair look.
