The guide to a perfect sleek hairstyle!

Sometimes we just need a quick hairstyle for those days we don’t have time to wash, blow-dry and style, right? Well, here are some of our top tips for creating the perfect sleek look with our brushwork’s products.

Prepping the hair

The best way to begin is by prepping your hair. If your hair is freshly washed, start by giving it some texture! We recommend adding a small amount of hairspray or gel to the roots of your hair just making it a lot easier to work with.

Next, we suggest starting with the brushwork’s professional oval detangling hair brush. This will get out any knots leaving the hair silky, sleek and tangle free.

Next, scoop all your hair up into the position you want it, begin brushing from front to back to your placement point, doing one side at a time keeping your parting.

Brushwork’s edges brush and comb

Now you have all your hair in the correct placement, using the edges brush and comb repeat the same process of going from front to back making sure to get every hair in the same direction on each side.

The purpose of this brush will be to secure all those fly aways or baby hairs which we all know can be very stubborn.

Top tip: by directing the hairs in an upwards motion it will give the illusion of a facelift making the face look more sharp and giving that cat eye look!


To finalise and secure your perfect sleek ponytail we suggest using our brushworks wonder bobbles. This will hold your hair together all day keeping the ponytail tight without giving the headache!

The last step to keep all the hairs in place is going over lightly with some hairspray or gel depending on your preference. This will really finalise and give you the ultimate sleek look.
