Pulled back or pulled forward

Today we investigate two styles which have the power to transform your look, depending on which way you flip your hair, forward or back! So which is your pick? Sleek and slicked back or beautifully brushed forward? Vote now in match the look.

Slicked Back

The slicked back style suits a more formal or sophisticated occasion, and has the effect of making its wearer look instantly more pulled together. Brush your hair back tightly for a completely clean and striking look, or loosen the 'do slightly around your bun or ponytail to soften the style slightly. Either way, make sure you spritz your hair softly with when you have it the way you want, so the slicked back style stays that way! With no hair to hide behind, it's also the perfect time to show off some new bling, creative makeup style or jazzy outfit... but perhaps not all at once.

Pulled forward

We'll be straight with you, pulled forward = party time. This sexy style is the perfect for the cool-girl (or boy!) who is down to have a good time. To achieve tousled perfection, we recommend incorporating a texturizing product like through damp hair before drying. Once styled the way you want, use a straightener to enhance and create movement through certain sections of hair around your face. Apply a little lightweight spray like to your fingers here and use them to define the sections without weighing your hair down.

So which of these styles will you be showing off next? Vote now in Match The Look!
