Classic hairstyles are, generally speaking, classic for a reason. The advantages of a well-groomed, voluminous side part, for example, are twofold; it's a look that appears totally pulled-together for a formal occasion but can also be dressed down for something more casual. The thing is, it's hardly an original look. Sure, it's graced the heads of silver screen heroes over the years – not to mention Benedict Cumberbatch – but it isn't unique. The good news is that putting your own spin on this style is actually pretty easy. Simply team it with an on-trend wet-look finish to create a really clean look that can work wonders on longer cuts.
Easy to style, perfect for taming unruly hair and a look that is more or less guaranteed to stay put all day long, it might just be the modern classic you didn't know you were looking for. To get the look, just follow the tutorial below.
What you need:
Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum
Step one: Start by warming some Deconstructing Gum in your hands then work it back through all of your hair. Add more gum as needed until you have built up a noticeable sheen from front to back.
Step two: Part your hair on one side then comb the hair through to smooth it into place.
Step three: Use your hands to shape the longer hair on top as desired. The gum won't set hard like a wet-effect gel so you can reshape during the day if you want to. Flatten the back and sides and you're good to go!
FYI - For a smoother matte-look finish, use TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty and a fine-tooth comb instead.
