Bumble and bumble The Polished Two-Step, a gift set including Straight Blow Dry and Thickening Hairspray, makes party-ready hair easy. “These products are incredibly user-friendly,” says Bumble and bumble Editorial Stylist Sabrina Michals. “Straight Blow Dry defrizzes and makes way for long-lasting styles, and Thickening Hairspray is my go-to, whether lightly sprayed or layered on.” Start with the spray on damp hair at the roots and apply the styling balm from the middle to ends. Here, Michals gives some tips on what to do next.
THE BUMP: Blow-dry, then backcomb and smooth with a large detangling brush. “This is a classic look made new,” says Michals. “Thickening Hairspray creates structure so the backcombing stays and Straight Blow Dry lets you wear it for two more days.”
THE SWOOP: Part hair with the same flat brush and blow-dry to one side. This “soft and effortless” style is best kept polished and sleek, Michals says. Worried about hat hair with such a strong side part? “Add Bumble and bumble Dry Spun Finish to the roots where your hair is flattened by your hat.”
THE FLIP: Blow-dry with a large round brush, away from the face. “For a holiday party, try leaving the flip in front and bringing the hair to the side, securing in a low ponytail or braid,” says Michals. “Adding some Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode will up the look’s staying power.”
