If you have particularly thick, unruly hair, you might be wondering what the best way to tame it is, especially if you have any formal events on the horizon. A natural, disheveled look is all very well and good but sometimes, you're left with no choice but to polish your style a little, for a job interview, say, or a wedding.

The thing is, sometimes hair just doesn't want to be polished. In fact, it would be happy to go out and about just as it is, splayed out in about 15 different directions without so much as a second thought for how it looks next to a white shirt or suit jacket.

Fear not, just because your hair doesn't care, doesn't mean you have to let it take control. With the right products and some careful styling, you can get a formal look in minutes that can be worn for all kinds of different occasions!

Play by your rules

Firstly, you'll need to get your hands on a jar of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum. Warm a little in your hands then run it back evenly through your hair, adding more as you go. Keep going until you have a good amount of hold but take care not to overload the strands.

Use your hands to shape the top of your hair, sweeping it back off your face, then firmly smooth down the sides and back. This will give your look a more polished feel and the gum won't set hard so you're totally free to shape and reshape to your heart's content.

Top tip – For anyone with especially stubborn hair, use a comb to part your hair on one side then run it through the rest of your hair after applying the gum. This will force the hair into shape and give your style a seriously dapper feel.

Happy styling!
