Here's why super-shiny glass hair is trending

When a hairstyle goes Insta-viral, you know it's worth a try. Popularised by Kim Kardashian, Lucy Hale and Hailey Bieber, the glass hair look is best described as modern, sleek and tidy. It's essentially a blunt bob, styled dead straight, with a high-shine finish.

This type of style will satisfy your inner perfectionist and the result is so shiny you can virtually see your reflection in it. It all boils down to the straight-edged cut, of course. If you're well overdue for a trim, you'll need a fresh cut to even things out and give you that blunt base. Typically, the look is just below the shoulder, but any length hair works so long as the cut is on point. Frizz and uneven lengths are an absolute no-no.

 

Once your hair stylist has nailed the cut, your work lies in the blow-dry and choosing the right products. To kick off, wash your hair using and Conditioner, which will render coloured hair instantly soft and purified.

 

Next comes the blow dry. Attach the nozzle to your hair dryer. As you raise it to your head, direct it down the hair shaft to remove all moisture and really make your locks glisten. As always, blow-dry your hair in sections with the help of a round bristle brush. This will condition your hair by distributing its natural oils and therefore boosting the shine factor.

 

To nail the glass look, run a small amount of an oil-based hair formula like through the hair, focusing on the lengths and ends. Just a few drops of this luxurious oil will enhance this look ten-fold. To fight the humidity that threatens to derail your glassy 'do, finish with a spritz of Messy Cliché French Girl Hair hairspray . It'll also fix up any rogue baby hairs if that's an issue for you.

 

While it may seem like an effort, this look is simple enough once you get the hang of it. We're confident you'll be sporting it on the regular.
