As fun and edgy messy looks can be, certain occasions and outfits demand you to look sophisticated, chic and oh-so-pretty. We know you always resort to that flat iron, even though you know the damage it will do to your hair. What better than achieving all the glam without almost no damage? Straight off the runway, we pulled out the best sleek, no-heat hairstyles for you.
Yeah, all the class girl! Sock buns are a great updo for every hair type and will add more volume if you’re lacking any, that is. For this look, you will need a market-bought sock bun or a doughnut bun. All the huns who are struggling with the bun, let’s get to it, shall we?
Prep: Begin prepping your hair with a mild cleansing(clarifying) shampoo and a good conditioner to moisturise your hair. The more moisturised your hair is, the easier it will be to detangle it and achieve a sleeker look. Comb your hair and gather it into a ponytail.
Style: Add a sock bun from the base of your ponytail sliding it downwards, two inches before you reach the end of your ponytail. Now split the remaining ends of your ponytail into four sections and wrap them around the bun. Start twisting your hair upwards, right to the base of the ponytail. Secure the bun with an elastic and neatly tuck in any loose strands with bobby pins.
Complete The Look: Apply some gel to keep any nappy hair in place. This no-heat sleek hairstyle will protect your hair from damage.
When all fails, the ponytail saves. Easy to do and glam to flaunt, the added pump to the basic ponytail will definitely make you look edgier, yet super sleek. We don’t want to be all talk and no action, so, shall we?
Prep: Shampoo and condition your hair using products best suited to your hair type. We swear by MegaGrowth Deep Conditioner. Blow-dry your hair and follow it up with a good serum for nourishment.
Style: Spritz some hairspray to your roots to infuse some volume at the front. Begin by combing your hair and gathering it to make a high ponytail using an elastic. To get that sleek sheen at the crown without the frizz, like Zendaya, use the African Pride Olive Miracle Braid Sheen Spray and you’re ready to roll!
Complete The Look: Finish the look with a sheen hairspray and you are good to go! This classic and sleek hairstyle is appropriate for every occasion!
Braids will save the day. Popularized by celebs and quirkier than your usual braid, this style will definitely up your mane game sister. If you have short hair you can try creating this look by braiding with the Darling Easy Braid Plus.
Intimidated already? No stress, we’re here to make this style easy for you
Prep: For best results, we suggest you prep your hair with a good shampoo and conditioner. Dry your hair and detangle it with your fingers to get rid of the knots. Divide your hair into two sections.
Style: Begin by plaiting the right section into classic 3 strand braids and stop 2-3 inches before the bottom. Repeat this for the left section. Secure the braids across the head with bobby pins. People with longer hair, whose braids don’t end at the centre, should try bringing them down behind your ears and then secure them.
Complete The Look: To make this look more chic, pull out a few strands to frame your face. Set the look and make it stay longer with a hairspray. This braided sleek hairstyle is a must try!
