NYFW Inspired Hairstyle Tutorial by Tony Odisho

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) showcased a lot of gorgeous hairstyles, but we noticed one common trend among them: sleek middle parts. So we decided to try out this gorgeous trend for ourselves and show you exactly how to achieve the look.

So without further ado, here’s our NYFW inspired hairstyle tutorial.

First, gather your tools. For this tutorial, we used Smoothing SerumFlexible Hold Hairspray, a Tony Odisho Infrared Curling Iron, and 3-in-1 Mist.

Part the hair right down the middle.

Then, use a small pump of Smoothing Serum to add a sleek shine.

Clip up all the hair except for the front pieces.

Then, secure those pieces at the base of the neck with a rubber band.

Coat the hair in a light layer of Flexible Hold Hairspray and curl it with the Infrared Curling Iron. Brush out curls to break them up a bit.

And, that’s it! A gorgeous sleek NYFW Inspired Hairstyle!

You can leave this as is or add a little pizzazz with a side braid.

Secure the end of the braid with a rubber band and wrap it with a piece of hair to hide it.

Gently pull on this sides of the braid to widen it.

Finish with 3-in-1 Mist for added shine and UV ray protection.

And, voila! Another gorgeous NYFW inspired hairstyle! Try it yourself and let us know how it works for you.
