How to create a sophisticated sleek wedding hairstyle


Wash your hair.

You’ll want to start with squeaky clean tresses, so begin by washing your hair with the new TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Marula Oil Shampoo and Conditioner.

This duo is formulated to nourish the hair, leaving it feeling smooth, tangle-free and ready for styling – ideal for this sleek wedding hairstyle!


Apply heat protectant and blow dry.

After you’ve towel-dried your mane, generously spray the Toni & Guy Heat Protection Mist all over your tresses to safeguard them against heated styling.

Then blowdry your mane while gently brushing through your hair using a paddle brush.


Section and tease.

Now separate the top section of your hair (preferably in a horseshoe shape!) and clip away the rest of the of your strands. Spray this section with the VO5 Dry Backcomb Spray to help give your tresses a plumped-up effect.

Next, using a comb, tease your hair at the roots to create body and height, before gently placing it foward for the moment.


Pin back and smooth.

Next, take a small section of hair from just below the horseshoe section and smooth it back. Mist the VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray while doing so, to help give your hair a glossy and super slick finish.

Once this section is completely smooth, secure it with a bobby pin and repeat the process on the other side.


Push back and set with hairspray.

Now that you’ve pinned back your hair, you’ll need to focus on your top section again! So gently push back over the pinned part of your hair, making sure not to flatten it.

Set the look with a healthy amount of hairspray, to ensure your mane lasts all day and night. A hairstyle that’s sleek and full of volume? Talk about a dreamy combo!


Final look.

And there you have it: an elegant, sleek wedding hairstyle that’ll have you shining bright throughout your vows!
