there's this girl in my school and I really like her hair, I want my hair to kinda be like that, and because I want to impress my boyfriend because I know he talks to her and I just want to have perfect hair like that. when I straighten it it always looks really frizzy, dry and thick but when you feel it, it feels soft but it definitely doesn't look like it. so I'm gonna go to get my haircut sometime this week and I want my hair to look like that. it's kinda short, a little past the shoulders, she has layers but they go straight down so it blends in (I already have layers so maybe I shouldn't get anymore?) and its extremely shiny!. by the way she has dark brown hair. now my hair is blond and kinda long and its not straight or curly, it has no certain definition its different every time and its always static-y after I straighten it! please help me and give me some advice on what to say when I get it cut and what I can do to make it shiny without having to spend a lot of money. by the way I'm thinking about getting it thinned because I think that might help, is that a good idea or no?

On top of what catgirl said... make sure your straightener is ionic with ceramic plates... It gives super straight very shiny results..I don't have an expensive one (I got mine at CVS and its by Revlon...cost about $50 I think) but it does an amazing job. I rave about it.
Also, be sure to use a straightening balm when your hair is wet, before you blow dry and straighten...helps to protect your hair/keep it healthy and helps with straightening. And always start with clean hair...never try and straighten "dirty" hair..ie youve had it out and put product in it or havnt washed it within the last couple hours.
On top of all that..keep in mind that its probably something in this girls genes making her hair behave a certain way, so don't be disappointed if your hair isn't exactly like hers...the only way it woudl be is if she's your sister..and even that's not a garuntee! My daughter and I have completely different hair textures...its impossible for us to recreate each others hairstyles.0
