This look might seem difficult to achieve but can actually be flawlessly executed in a matter of minutes, making it one to add to your repertoire now! So, what are you waiting for? Get started with our step by step guide...
This style works best on day old hair, as your hair's natural oils offer extra grip. However, if you want to start with freshly washed hair, simply spritz it throughout with a heat protect spray for straight hair.
Although your hair will be up, this style requires it to be smooth and shiny from root to tip, so the right styling tools are essential. Choose a quality blow dryer to reduce frizz. The higher the wattage, the more powerful the dryer -upwards of 1800 watts is ideal. For a sleek, red carpet ready style like Sarah's, use a large round brush.
Create a deep side part. The most flattering place to create a side part is just above the arch of your eyebrow.
Comb your hair back off your face, keep it lying as close to the scalp as possible. Take a small section of hair from behind one ear, twist the hair and pin it towards the back of your head. Repeat this twisting process on the other side of your hair until the two meet. Conceal the ends of your hair and secure with a spritz of strong hold hairspray.
