Hair 101: Sleek Chic to Messy Waves

All throughout Fashion Week I saw sleek hair, messy hair, braids, buns, everything! However sleek hair and messy hair have always struck my interest and I love going back and forth between the two styles. Vanessa Hudgens knows exactly how to switch it up and look amazing! Plus Vanessa has the wavy hair down pat for the short/medium length hair girls. Keep on reading for tips on getting sleek and wavy hair.

Sleek hair gives off a look of chicness. The best way to get your hair super straight is with the use of a good flatiron, but make sure you keep the heat low so you don't burn any hair off. Now, to get the ultimate sleek look you do want to use a serum so your hair will all brush in the direction you want while staying together and very sleek. Be sure you don't apply too much to the ends of your hair or else your hair will lose its movement and appear weighed down. The sleek look can also be transformed into a bun or ponytail because the hair is straight and together. 

Messy wavy hair does need a little product to hold the curls which is perfect after wearing your hair in a sleek look. My favorite way to create wavy hair with minimum to know heat is by braiding my hair. The closer to your root you braid, the more hair will be wavy and the smaller and tighter the braid, then wavier and bigger your hair will be. Leave the braids in for a couple hours or overnight for the waves to form and take them out one by one afterwards. Never brush the waves, use your fingers or a very wide tooth comb. If you need to, use a wide barrel curling iron to perfect some of the waves.

Do you prefer sleek or wavy hair?
