If you're looking for a formal hairstyle for a job interview or, well, any polished occasion really, you're in the right place. A well-groomed side sweep is always a great go-to option and one that's surprisingly easy to style, too.

Whether you're headed to a wedding, the boardroom, meeting the in-laws or even just going a party and you want to look kind of fancy, this style is a good bet. Keep reading to find out just want you need to do to get it...

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty
Tail comb
Your hands (y'know, in case you forget...)

Step one: Scoop a small amount of Hyper Fix Putty out of the jar with your fingertips and warm it by rubbing your hands together. This will emulsify the product and make it really easy to work through your hair.

Step two: Use a tail comb to part your hair. Then, working in quick, sweeping motions, run the putty through the top section, working down the sides and back.

Step three: Add more putty as needed, but be careful not to overload your hair. Less is more and, if you want this style to look as natural as possible, the bare minimum is really all you need.

Step four: Use a blow-dryer to help fix the front and give the hair some light movement. Use the part as your starting point and direct the airflow diagonally as you run it across your head.

Step five: Shape your hair with your hands then comb it through to make sure it looks as polished as possible. That's it!

Happy styling!
