Step 1: Start with clean hair.

Wash hair with Dove Radiant Shine Shampoo and follow up with the Dove Radiant Shine Conditioner to cleanse, nourish and add shine to your hair before creating your sleek hair trend look.

Step 2: Blow-dry and flat iron.

Blow-dry your hair to speed up the drying process, apply S Factor by TIGI Flat Iron Shine Spray to your hair, then straighten with a flat iron.

Step 4: Apply some hair wax.

Use hair wax like S Factor by TIGI Creamy Molding Wax to define and mold your hair into place. Secure tightly with a hair elastic. (This style can also be done on short hair like pixie cuts, just skip the hair elastic.) Apply a dollop your your hands and use the palm of your hand to smooth the product onto your hair.

Step 5: Style hair lengths and set.

Wind your hair into a bun, leave it loose or add some curls to complete your look. Once you’ve got the look you desire, set it with a hairspray for hold. You’ve now got the sleek hair trend.
