How to Create A Modern Sophistication Style 11 Honore Style
This slicked-back style captures a modern sophistication, giving you a classic look with a slight bit of edge to it.
“The collection is quintessentially high fashion, so I wanted the hair to mimic that. I created a sleek, straight-hair look perfect for a high fashion runway–elevated but nothing that distracts too much from the designs themselves,” explains Nai’vasha.
Learn how to create the style below.
1. Apply Smooth Hair Cream
To start the look, begin by applying TRESemmé One Step Smooth from the roots through the ends. Next, blow-dry the hair straight down, brushing away from the hairline. To achieve an even smoother look, use a paddle brush to brush the hair back while blow-drying.
All of the nutrients, control, hold, manageability is all in this little bottle.
Nai’vasha shares how the TRESemmé One Step line has been her go-to throughout fashion week, “It shines, controls, and it has a little bit of hold in it. The One Step Smooth goes such a long way. After shampooing and conditioning, you apply this and everything is done for you. All of the nutrients, control, hold, manageability is all in this little bottle.” Products that have so many benefits in one are perfect for anyone who prefers a simple hair care routine or is often on the go.
2. Straighten Hair for Modern Sophisticated Style
You can’t have a sleek look without straight strands. First, apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protectant Spray all throughout your hair. It’s essential to use a heat protectant when using heat on your hair. We love this particular one because it uses African and Marula Oil and Keratin to calm frizz, detangle, and boost shine all while softening your hair too.
After applying the heat protectant, go in with your straightener and begin flat ironing your hair in small sections.
3. Add Gel
Now that the hair is smoothed and straightened, it’s time to enhance that slicked-back appearance. Using TRESemmé TRES Two Mega Control Gel, apply the gel throughout the roots, creating finger-spacing. To achieve the finger-spacing look, don’t comb your hair first, simply use just your fingertips to run the gel throughout the hair.
4. Finish with a Spray
You’ll want to make sure your modern sophisticated style stays in place all day, so finish with a spritz of TRES Two Freeze Hold Hair Spray. For this sophisticated modern look, you want to show off the natural movement and texture of the hair. To do this, only apply the hair spray near the roots and top of your head. Once you sprayed your hair, your look is set for the day!
