Shiny, SMOOTH & Sleek
STEP 1: Prep is the most important part of your routine; use a sleek styling product like the Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother on damp hair. It’s great for heat protection and creating a new, smooth surface to work on. STEP 2: If you want to regularly create straight and sleek styles but have a natural wave or curl to your hair, then Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight is perfect as it progressively loosens curls or kinks over time – making glossy, sleek styles much more accessible. STEP 3: Your blow-drying technique can make or break your look; use the nozzle on the hair dryer to help control the air flow and direct the flow from root to tip, blowing in sections starting with the lower areas and working your way up. It’s pivotal that you wet down sections if they’ve already dried before you get to them – you don’t want flicks and curls in all the wrong places. STEP 4: Use a round brush for a sleek, voluminous appearance, or a paddle brush for smoother, straight styles. STEP 5: To complete your look, spritz a shine product all over for a high sheen finish and spray a misting of hairspray to set your style.
