“The preparation for this sleek look is the most important part of the style. To ensure that the look would last all night, it was imperative that the hair didn’t have any crimps or curls, and prep included blowing out Taylor’s hair and then straightening it.“
“After the look was complete, to make sure that there were no fly-aways or frizz, I used a toothbrush covered in amika Headstrong Hairspray to brush along the hairline.“
Get the Look:
Step 1. Starting with damp hair, apply amika Bombshell Blowout Spray throughout the hair.
Step 2. Next, using the amika Power Cloud Force Dryer blow out the hair using a flat brush.
Step 3. Once dry, straighten the hair using with amika Digital Titanium Glide Styler to ensure the hair is sleek and smooth.
Step 4. After the hair is fully straightened, brush into a high ponytail and twist the hair around itself into a tight bun.
Step 5. Using a hairspray-coated toothbrush, brush along the hairline to secure any fly-aways near the face. Seal the look with amika Headstrong Hairspray.
