“From there, Mason Pearson or a similar boar bristle brush is really good for smoothing your hair into these really sleek styles. Make sure you’re wrapping your hair band really tight.”
Katie suggested using a wax similar to Fat Boy Water Wax to get those really nice, tiny spiky ends, specifically for a spiky bun. Then spray hairspray all over to make sure the hair is nicely slicked back, there aren’t any flyaways, and nothing will move.
“So layering products in that way and making sure it’s properly prepped, I would say is the best way to ensure success for your styled slicked back look,” she concluded.
