Hairstyle inspiration doesn't always have to be super 'out there'. In fact, some of the best and most enduring styles out aren't very complicated at all. Take this long wavy street style hairstyle, for example. It's a very chic look and one that can be worn anywhere. The reason this haircut works so well is the sheer simplicity of it. With a side part, sleek texture and a few subtle waves, the style doesn't overwhelm this girl's look. What's more, it doesn't go unnoticed either.

If your hair looks kind of like this in its natural state, great for you! If not, with a few quick styling tricks, you can get a similar hairstyle in less time than you might think. It's all about letting the length do most of the work with a little extra body and movement, and a sleek finish thrown in for good measure.

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream
Tail comb
Medium-barrel curling iron
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray

Step one: Starting with damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream. Use a tail comb to define a straight side part and then blow-dry. Direct the airflow from your part down toward the ground – this will give a controlled finish and help to fix your part into place.

Step two: Take a medium-barrel curling iron, 1 ¼" or the next size up, and curl the lengths of your hair. Don't go any higher than your ears to keep the style looking relaxed. It can be a good idea to leave some random sections of hair uncurled if you only want some very subtle movement.

Step three: Finger-comb your hair to relax the waves a little. If they still seem a little too curly, brush them through with a bristle brush and finger-comb again. This will smooth the waves down and make them appear more natural.

Step four: Mist with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to tame flyaways and give your locks a super sleek finish. That's it!
