Step 2: Heat protect and straighten

Because we want our hair to look extra slick and glossy, we’re going to straighten our hair, but not before using some heat protecting spray.

Step 3: Go for a middle parting

Place a fine toothed comb at the bridge of your nose and point it upwards. That’s where your middle parting should be.

4th Hair Style Idea: The Slick Back Look

This is a perfect hair style for statement earrings or statement makeup as it completely uncovers your face and ears while remaining both glamourous and edgy. Here’s how to get the look:

The Slick Back Look

Step 1: Brush, brush, brush

To make hair easy to style it’s important to brush through your hair using a detangler.

The Slick Back Look

Step 2: Section off the front top bit of hair

To start, section off the front top bit of hair and clip it away. Take the hair from the front, all the way to the crown to ensure we have enough hair to conceal teased tresses underneath.

Step 3:  Smooth both sides and pin in place

Using a backcombing brush, smooth both side sections and pin them back placing the pins in an X shape. Spray both sides with hair spray for extra hold. If you want to rock a “wet” look, apply gel or serum to the sides.

Step 4: Part the top hair into two sections and tease

It’s time to work with the hair you had clipped away. Part it into two, clip the front one out of the way and tease the one that’s at the crown. Go back to the front one and part again and repeat the teasing process. You can do this three or four times. Brush through and neaten the hair that will be placed on the top of your backcombed tresses.

Step 5: Finish with hair spray

To make sure the finish of this look is smooth and neat, tidy up the top by brushing through with a backcombing brush and hairspray. Again, you can go for a toothbrush too (as long as you don’t use it for brushing teeth after!). Finish with a whole lot of hair spray.

And now for the… Earrings!

Stunning!

5th Hair Style Idea: Vintage Waves

Step 2: Apply heat protection and go for a deep side parting

Using a heat protection spray is really important to make sure your hair isn’t damaged because of the heat in electrical hair stylers. Go for a deep side parting and clip away the part of your hair you are not going to curl straight away.

Step 3: Time to curl

Using a wand, start curling away from the face. Count to 10, release and gently pull the strand. Repeat on all of your hair apart from  the top front on the other side – the side fringe area. Curl the fringe area last, making sure the hair is at the base of the wand for maximum volume.

Step 4: Brush though the curls gently and smooth the side

Brush though the curls away from the face using a wide toothed comb or brush. For extra volume, brush the fringe area up. Add serum to the side hair making it smoother and flatter. Tuck it behind the ear. Continue to add a bit of serum to all of the curls using your fingers.

Step 5: Hair spray time

Finish the look with hair spray. For maximum hold, go for a strong hold hair spray.
