Try this super sleek style at home in under five minutes. 

One of the most common themes we’ve seen at New York Fashion Week this season is seeing stylists embracing the models’ natural texture. At Sally La Pointe’s Spring/Summer 2018 show, Holli Smith, TRESemmé NYFW stylist, did just the opposite. She created a futuristic sleek style using lots of shine and silver hair accessories. This sleek style makes a big statement on the runway while still remaining a totally wearable everyday style.

“We decided to put these silver bobby pins on each side so that there’s some sort of finished detail,” Smith says. “We’re using some of the shine serum in the hair to sort of lay it down and create a glossy, not-so-wet look. Every model has her own length so there’s a little bit of individuality with that. We’re finishing with the bobby pins by laying our hands on top and securing the pins. There’s something kind of futuristic about it. It’s a pretty simple detail but it makes this style completely achievable at home.”

“Use a product that feels like a conditioner but is really a styling product, something that has a hand lotion feel to it,” Smith advises. “You can seal the hair with a flat iron for a more polished look that stands up to the elements.”

How to Create this Futuristic Sleek Style at Home
