Whether you're growing out a short pixie haircut or just figuring out how to style a longer version of the look, we have the perfect hairstyle tutorial for you! This simple, slicked-back 'do can be achieved in no time, and it makes for a great party look.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout, then blow-dry it all back off your face. Keep the airflow moving from front to back as the hair will set in the position it dries in, which will make the following steps even easier.

Step 2
When your locks are almost dry, turn the dryer off and run a brush from front to back.

Step 3
Warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty in your hands and smooth it back through your hair. You really don't need much to get the job done, so start with a tiny amount and add more as needed to avoid overloading your strands.

Step 4
Flatten the sides against your head and shape the top with your hands. The putty won't dry hard or crunchy like a gel, so you can take your time and reshape whenever you want while on the go.

Step 5
Complete the look with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray and you're all set!
