Beauty trend: straight hair with Jessica Alba, Beyoncé, Nicole Kidman...

by Kathy Saunders - Thursday February 14, 2013 - 13h00

Jessica Alba is the latest in a long line of a-list celebrities to adopt a super straight hairstyle on the red carpet. For Jessica, it's just another great way to show off her ombre dye, but a lot of stars have been using their straighteners with all kinds of sleek, glamourous results!

Let's take a look at some of the best super-straight celeb hairstyles:

Beyoncé Knowles

Mrs. Carter showed off her almost waist-length hair in a chic low ponytail at the 2013 Grammys, adding the perfect finishing touch to her ultra-polished look. You can also see Queen Bey with her poker-straight locks hanging loose at the "Beyoncé: Life is but a Dream" premiere.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman accompanied Husband Keith Urban to the Grammys with a mid-length straight 'do. This geometric look was the epitome of casual chic, giving Nicole extra cool points... not that the Hollywood goddess really needs them.

Michelle Obama

The First Lady dazzled everyone with her new fringe ahead of Barack's second inauguration in January and we think her new 'do looks absolutely, positively fantastic when straight. It frames her face perfectly without being too harsh; could this be our favourite straight look yet?

Julianne Hough

The "Safe Haven" star went for a volumised straight bob for a party in Los Angeles recently, straightening the top layer of her hair and the sections around her face. This created what you might call an A-line hairstyle that matched her chic trouser suit brilliantly.

Other notable styles

Other super-sleek, super-glamourous stars include Will Smith's gorgeous other half Jada Pinkett-Smith, who rocked a super sleek, flowing hairstyle at New York Fashion Week. Also, Victoria's Secret angel Lily Aldridge went for a similar look to launch the lingerie brand's Valentine's line.

So, maybe it's time to get busy with the flat irons! Just don't forget your heat protection spray...
