Straight, silky hair will forever be a timeless look. It is one of the most versatile hairstyles of all time. You can straighten your hair for something as casual as a lunch date with a friend, or do something as extravagant as KKW's sleek look at the 2017 Met Gala.

Of course, the best way to get your hair looking chic and smooth is to use the best hair straightener you can find. And as beauty fanatics, we Byrdie editors tend to get kind of (okay, extremely) picky when it comes to finding the best hair straightener. It needs to heat up quickly, have multiple temperature settings, not tug at the hair, and it should only require a minimal number of strokes until your hair is bone straight. We know, we know—it's hard to imagine that such a straightener even exists. Luckily, we put together a list of the most amazing hair straighteners we've had to honor to use.
