Do you need a simple hairstyle for work that won't raise any eyebrows but still look laid back enough for happy hour? If so, we suggest you try this swept back style for medium-length hair. It looks completely effortless and with a suprisingly simple styling technique, it pretty much is!

To get the look, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with clean, slightly damp hair, smooth a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty throughout. Start at the hairline and work your way back, adding more gum as needed. Use only the bare minimum for a really natural-looking finish.

Step 2
To get more volume in front, use a comb to gently lift the hair, then blow-dry it from the root upward for a few seconds to set.

Step 3
When you're happy with the volume, fix the rest of your style with the blow-dryer, running the airflow from front to back in smooth strokes.

Step 4
Warm a little more putty on your fingertips and use it for any final touch-ups, then smooth down the sides and back of your style to finish.

1/ The slick alternative

If you want a slicker look, use Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel to sweep your hair back. To boost volume when using a gel, massage the hair at the root before the it sets.

What do you think? Could this become your new signature look for both work and play?
