We love ogling the runways as much as the next fashion-obsessive, but knowing Resort 2015 ready-to-wear won’t hit shelves in the foreseeable future does put a damper on the festivities. Conveniently, the ultra sleek hairdos — ideal for combating the season’s unforgiving humidity levels — are light on technique, and with the right tools, attainable pretty much immediately. How’s that for instant gratification?
Runway To Real-Way In 5 Simple 'Dos
Get The Look: Severe Side Part
Using a paddle brush, blow-dry while manipulating your hair forward. Once completely dry, lightly spray roots with dry shampoo -- this provides staying power without weighing locks down with loads of hair spray. Finish by parting hair to one side to create the desired depth.
Get The Look: Headscarves
Those cursed with frizz-prone strands will appreciate this humidity-taming trick: simply tie a long, skinny scarf around the crown of the head, leaving the ends to float freely. Voila!
Get The Look: Partial Pastel
Even commitment-phobes can take part in Louis Vuitton's sweet take on punk by way of semi-permanent dyes. Those looking to have a one night stand with color will fall in love with hair chalk: apply a lot or a little, it all washes out with water.
Get The Look: Low-Set Pony
Creating silkiness is the key to nailing this look. Go over dry locks with a flat iron to achieve next-level smoothness, then pull hair back into a ponytail so it sits a little above the nape of the neck (hint: use hair ties that match your hair color for a barely-there effect). Seal the deal with a few drops of shine enhancing serum.
Get The Look: No-Nonsense Middle Part
Starting at the hairline, use a fine tooth comb to part straightened hair right down the middle. For extra sleekness, work some smoothing serum through the ends. The beauty of this look is in its simplicity.
