2017 has been all about tousled loose beach waves, but let’s take a break from that and try something a little more…sleek. Straight, sleek hair parted down the middle has been a rising trend this year being seen on runways and red carpets alike. This style pairs excellently with feminine dresses like seen below on Gwenyth Paltrow for an all over lady like look. Also with classic outfits like Selena Gomez who paired it with a timeless black turtleneck. It can also simplify an extravagant dress like seen on Kylie Jenner in the photo below. Whether you’re wearing this style on a short bob or longer locks you’ll look elegant either way. This look isn’t hard to achieve but it has to be done the right way for the full effect. Keep reading to see how.
Gwenyth Paltrow has been rocking this look since the 90’s.
Selena Gomez pairs her straight locks with a dark lip and sweater for a vampy look.
Kylie Jenner is a perfect example of how you can still wear this look with short hair
Your hair has to be absolutely pin straight in order to perfect this look so here’s how to get it there. If you have curly or frizzy hair you’ll want to make sure to use a smoothing shampoo to start taming your hair from the get go. If your hair is naturally straight try a shampoo with some ingredients that’ll add a bit of shine. First off, part your wet hair straight down the middle using a comb to make your part as precise as possible. Apply an oil or serum onto wet hair to ensure the glossiest finish. The best thing to do next is blow dry your hair to seal the cuticle. Sealing the cuticle of the hair using heat makes for the smoothest look. Use a ceramic round brush and make sure to apply heat protectant prior to blow drying. Blow dry the hair as straight as possible and follow up with a flat iron to ensure the strands are stick straight. If your ends have any type of bend you’ll want to make sure they end up perfectly straight. After all these steps are done run a finishing oil or spray through the ends of the hair avoiding the roots so they don’t end up looking greasy. Don’t be afraid to use high shine products for this look as the glossy finish is key.

It’s the end of the week, your hair hasn’t been washed since Sunday, you’ve already worn a hat, already done a messy bun, what now? I’ve got two words for you, high pony. Thats right, a high ponytail. Sounds like something you were forced to wear when you were on the cheer team in high school, right? Think again, high pony’s are back and chicer than ever. Celebrities have been sporting this style everywhere from the grocery store to the Met Gala, and you be should too!

Wearing your hair up instantly makes your entire look dressier and more put together. Pair a pony with a t-shirt and jeans for a simple yet stylish look. Another advantage to wearing this style is that it’s great for days when you’re in a rush and don’t have time to fully style or even wash your hair. No one will ever know you’ve got day seven hair piled on top of your head when you look that good.

Hailey Baldwin likes her high pony’s with a bit of added texture.
Here’s how to get the look and the things you’ll need…
Style your hair. If you want your pony to have some added texture try wrapping a few pieces of hair loosely around a curling wand. If you’re opting for a sleeker look run a straightener over your strands to smooth them out.
Next take a boar bristle brush, flip your head upside down and start to gather your ponytail on the top of your head. Using the brush to smooth out any bumps.
Turn your head right side up and secure the hair with an elastic as tight as you can handle! (Bonus with this hairstyle is the instant face lift)
Final steps, for a casual look pull some pieces out to frame your face or for a more refined look tame your fly aways with a little hairspray or hair gel.
Viola! A quick classic hairstyle that anyone can pull off.
