The outlook for the autumn season? As always, between constant drizzle, intermittent lightening and downpours! But on our heads it's all sunshine, because the Sleek Look for hair is showing its best side this season. And what has already been seen at the fashion shows in Paris, London or New York has now also arrived at home - the hair styling that goes with us through wind and weather!
Sleek is chic!
Sleek hair always looks a bit unusual, shiny and super sleek. But styling it is not that easy if you don't want it to look greasy or unkempt. A few tips and tricks help to achieve the sexy straight look: If you want your straight mane to look like it's fresh out of the shower, style it with a wet look. To achieve this, the hair is treated with styling gel and then, usually lying close to the head, brought into the desired shape. The cool thing about it: the hair looks shiny, wet and "undone". And this hair style has not only won its fans in summer, but also scores top marks in autumn and winter: Because although the hair looks like it's been freshly washed, it's dry and no one catches a cold because of it! Especially for the party season and the big celebrations at the end of the year, the wet look is a super evening styling tip: extravagant, unusual - and yet with durability guaranteed for the whole night!The Sleek Look always fits
The Sleek Look is a classic for long hair. But even those who wear a bob, medium-length hair or a long bob don't have to do without this hairstyling trend. With the Sleek Look, as with the Wet Look, the length of the hair is relatively unimportant. On the contrary, styling short or layered hair into the appropriate shape is easier and much quicker than with long hair. The most important thing is to straighten the hair skilfully! There are a few things you should definitely keep in mind here:
Tips and tricks
The straightening iron or a hairdryer with the appropriate attachment are the best friends of hair in the Sleek Look. But to prevent the hair from becoming split or brittle, reliable heat protection is essential! They are available as sprays, mousses or fluids that act like a kind of buffer around the hair and prevent the temperature from rising too much. As a general rule, strong hair copes better than fine hair, so fine, thin hair should not be straightened more than two or three times a week. The temperature should also not exceed about 120 degrees. The choice of the right straightening iron also plays an important role: if they are coated with ceramic or Teflon, the heat is distributed evenly. Be careful with metal plates - they quickly make the hair brittle and split.
For straightening, individual sections of washed, semi-dry hair are separated and processed one after the other. Straighten strand by strand - never start at the roots! - Pull the straightening iron through to the tips. If possible, always work at the same speed to avoid overheating in places. While the plates of the iron should be as wide as possible for long hair, a narrower model will suffice for short hair. And if you want to protect your hair, you should use a hairdryer and a round brush or straightening attachment instead of a straightening iron and then apply gel or anti-frizz lotion to the lengths!
