If you have naturally unkempt or curly hair, styling it for formal occasions can sometimes seem a little tricky. Fear not, slicked back, greasy-looking curls (or no styling at all) isn't your only option. With the right product, and styling technique, you might be surprised at how sophisticated your hair can look.

There's absolutely no reason not to make your natural hair texture the main focus of your chosen style, you just want to make sure any chaos appears totally controlled. This is especially true if you are expected to look a certain way for work or want to rock some formal attire without unbalancing or overwhelming your look.

The kind of hairstyle that works best with natural curls is a deconstructed look that isn't slicked and combed into rigid submission, but isn't left entirely to its own devices either.

What you need:

Your hands

Step one: Start by warming a little Deconstructing Gum in your hands. Place a small amount on your fingertips and then rub your hands together to emulsify the product. This will make it really easy to apply.

Step two: Run your fingers through your hair, starting with the top and then working the gum down the sides and back of your head in sections. Add more gum if you need it but be careful not to overload your hair.

Step three: Twist and tousle small sections of hair, and then finger-comb and scrunch.

Step four: Shape with your hands, making sure there are no strands that have gone awry. Double check the back with a hand mirror and you're good to go. If you want to reshape your style during the day, you can because Deconstructing Gum stays flexible and doesn't dry hard.

Happy styling!
