When you get a new haircut, or are thinking about getting one, it's important to know how you want it to look and how you're going to achieve that. This is especially true of any cut with a geometric feel and/or bangs like a long bob for example.

Long bobs and bangs make a great team, especially when styled with an ultra-sleek finish. The thing is, achieving a glossy sheen can seem like the hairstyle equivalent of Mount Everest if your hair isn't as well-behaved as you would like... unless you have the right products and styling tricks to help things go smoothly.

Fight frizz

When you wash your hair, make sure you're using a moisturizing conditioner to rehydrate and nourish your hair. Regular heat styling can cause the hair to dry out, causing damage and – you guessed it – unwanted frizz. After that, protect your hair by applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream before you blow-dry the hair. While acting as a heat protectant, it smooths the cuticle as the hair dries, encouraging a straight, sleek finish sans frizz!


Use a flat iron for any touch-ups post blow-dry, just make sure you apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray first. It seals in shine, calms any remaining frizz and can keep your hair sleek for up to three days. Talk about multi-tasking...

Finishing touches

Once you're done drying and straightening, finish with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray. This will add extra shine and tame flyaways, giving you a cashmere-soft finish. Finally, if humidity is an issue, use Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray to prevent frizz without dampening your style.

You may not need to do all of these things every time you wash your hair but it's good to know what your best options are. Happy styling!
