As the heat begins to dissipate and fall starts to creep in, sleek styles are making their comeback. Hot weather can make these looks difficult because you sweat out product and frizz joins the party, but with cooler weather, it’s go-go-go! We are loving a sleek street style look and have been highly inspired to give this a try ASAP. Keep reading to see which products we recommend for nailing this sleek, high-fashion style:
How to Create a Sleek Street Style Look
1. Create Your Part
The first step to creating this style is determining where you want your part. The part needs to be clean and straight to get that bold look on point. You can get a clean part by using a part comb to make sure no strands are flipped on the wrong side. We recommend creating either a strong middle part or a slight side part–anything too dramatic and gelling it down will be on the trickier side.
2. Add in Gel
Now that you have your part nice and crisp, it’s time to add in the gel. The shinier and sleeker you want the style, the more gel you’ll need. We love TRESemmé TRES Two Mega Firm Control Gel to create sleek styles. It’s what they use backstage at NYFW and we want only the best for our own styles! Cover your strands in gel from the roots to the ends. You don’t need to slather it on, but use enough to tame your frizz and get that high-shine factor.
3. Secure Your Style
It’s time to secure your style! Use a brush to smoothly gather all of your hair. Create a low bun or ponytail and tie it with an elastic. If you go for a ponytail, keep it stylish by wrapping a small section of hair around it to conceal your elastic and secure it with a bobby pin.
4. Don’t Forget Some Hairspray
The finishing touch for this sleek street style look is a lightweight hairspray that adds some shine! Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hairspray is our product of choice. Give your style a quick spray to add your shine and ensure no flyaways break out during the day.
