Sometimes you just don't have any time to do your hair but you do have somewhere to be and there's no way that a bed head bird's nest is going to cut it. So, what do you do? Well, first of all you don't panic. Secondly, you calmly follow the easy tutorial below to get a slick side sweep in mere minutes that will make you look pulled-together and hide any greasy roots you didn't wake up in time to wash.


Step one

Brush your hair through then flip it all over to one side in a quick, unceremonious fashion. It doesn't matter which side you choose but we advise you to go for the one that showcases your 'best side' to make sure you feel your best – or as good as you can when starting the day in a big stressful rush.

Step two

Warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands then run it through your hair, working from the part outward. Add more as you go until you have a slight sheen and a reasonable amount of hold without your hair looking gunky.

Step three

On the side with less hair, smooth everything flat against your head then pin at the nape of your neck, allowing the loose hair on the other side to fall over the pins. If you have the time, French braid the hair on this side of your head before you pin it to add some extra detail.

Step four

Shape, scrunch and muss the rest of your hair as desired, double-check the back, and you're all set!
