Buh-bye, beach waves. See ya, tousled texture. Even Tay’s
signature golden curls seem long gone. We’re so ready for the sleek strands of
fall—which seem to give whatever you’re wearing a hyper haute look. Why not
avoid the fussy updos and just go straight and smooth for Homecoming this year?
We’re spilling the secrets to going sleek.
First: To start off pour a small amount of shine
spray into your palm, rub together and apply evenly through damp hair, making
sure to work it all the way through to the ends. Warning: Don’t use too much or
the added weight will cause your hair to get greasy much faster.

Next: Dry your
hair and make sure to use the nozzle attachment that comes with the dryer. This
tool allows the air from the blow dryer to be more concentrated on one area of
your head, which means tons of added control. Put the dryer on a lower speed
and higher heat to dry the hair fast but to keep your hair from blowing
everywhere. Use a large round brush to help you keep everything straight.

Hint: Try drying
your hair in small sections to ensure super straightness.
Next: Create a
side part and use a flat iron to go over any unruly pieces to guarantee
sleekness and shine.
