Prep.

Start with hair that is not so clean and has some body to it… Ask any stylist and we’ll all tell you that we prefer working with a dirty mane when styling hair for a special event. That way, you get the most out of your hair products plus lasting structure. A sleek look (like the one we’re creating here) is always a great option for managing next day hair when you’ve got somewhere to be but no time for a salon visit. With the right style, you can really make hair shine by using days of product and natural hair oil to your advantage.
