An ultimate hairstyle is one that is wearable and is very simple which can easily compliment your whole look. We spend so much time trying to learn how to recreate sexy wavy hairstyles that it's easy to forget to pay some attention to the sleek, smooth and natural looking styles. The hair look at DKNY's spring 2013 show was created by Eugene Souleiman, the global creative director for Wella Professionals.

According to him, the hair reflects the DKNY girl's lifestyle. The hairstyle is very relaxed and subtle and a multi textured effect was created. It is time to give your hair curlers a rest and try out this smooth and cleanly finished hair with a side parting.

DKNY's Sleek And Natural Parted Hair

  1. Your hair will be easier to manage if it is clean and freshly washed and conditioned. Eugene Souleiman suggests using Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner. After, roughly dry your hair using your hands and create a low side parting, sectioning the hair from the parting to the crown.

  2. Blow dry your hair in sections, using a round brush as this creates a sleek and smooth finish. While blow drying, apply tension with the brush at the roots and loosen the tension as you get to the ends of the hair.

  3. Once the section near the forehead is dry and smooth, sweep the hair down low over your forehead and secure it behind your ear with a hair pin. Next pull some hair forward over the ear to hide the hairpin and give the whole look a little less polish.

  4. Pull and twist the hair (like a rope) on both sides towards the back of the head and spray it hairspray or a seasalt spray. Backstage at DKNY the team used Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray. Hold the twisted rope hair and apply heat with a diffuser til it is completely dry.

  5. For a natural tousled effect, pin the twisted rope hair up for a little while. Once the rope of hair is released, you will instantly have natural looking tousled hair!

  6. If you want a textured fly away feel, push the hair upwards against its natural grain around the crown of the head.
