Short hair and slick wet-look textures go together like birds of a feather, especially if this effortlessly cool style is anything to go by. It's the ultimate in easy styling and it just so happens to be the perfect dirty hair solution (apart from shampoo that is...)

This look is perfect for a night out as the side-sweep creates a great frame for your face, allowing you to go all–out with the smoky eyes. To get the look, all you have to do is follow the tutorial below!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum
Wide-tooth comb

Step one: Before you start, take a minute to brush your hair through, removing any knots. This will make the whole styling process smooth and simple.

Step two: Scoop a small amount of Deconstructing Gum out of the jar and warm it by rubbing your hands together. Then, sweep it back through your hair, starting on top and working through the rest. Add more as you go but be careful not to overload your locks. You want a good amount of hold and a visible low-shine finish, but nothing gunky.

Step three: Use a wide-tooth comb to rake the hair over to one side. It doesn't matter which, just go with whatever looks best and feels the most comfortable. Translation: choose your best side.

Step four: Use your hands to shape the hair, guiding the front section up and then sculpting it around into something resembling a wave.

Step five: Pin back everything on the side with less hair and you're good to go!

What do you think, could you rock this look?
