Straight and sleek holiday hair by Mostly Megan
Wash your hair.
Before you start creating this retro hairstyle, wash your hair with the Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo and Conditioner to help nourish any dry and damaged strands, and make your hair appear healthier.
Prep your hair.
Apply hair serum.
Now smooth your strands with a small amount of the VO5 Heat Protect Serum.
Not only does this clever product help to safeguard your tresses from any heat damage caused by straightening, it will also help give your hair a lovely, glossy sheen.
Section your hair in half.
If you have long, thick hair like Mostly Megan, section it in half horizontally using a sectioning clip before you begin straightening.
Straighten your hair.
Working with small sections of hair at a time, use a slimline pair of straighteners to create the smooth and sleek aesthetic of your ’90s look.
If you have hot blunt bangs like Mostly Megan, straighten these last!
To ensure that your style isn’t cramped by any pesky flyaways – and to ensure it stays straight and smooth all night long – give your ‘do a once over with the TRESemmé Ultimate Hold Hairspray.
To complete your slick holiday hair look, you’ll want to decorate your mane with a hair accessory.
This could be a dazzling, embellished clip, or even a few simple bobby pins. Whatever you choose, just pull your strands behind one ear and fasten your accessory in place!
