SIDE PARTING ESSENTIALS

This ultimate style-saving trio will get your side parting on point, ASAP...

STEP 1

STAY SLEEK

Squeeze Shockwaves Styling Steel Gel directly down the center of a hard-bristled brush. The fast-fixing gel formula will ensure your side parting is locked in tight for up to 24 hours, lending a mirror-like shine to hair. Wherever your day takes you, we promise it will not budge.

SMOOTH IT OVER

Sweep the gel-loaded brush through dry hair to evenly distribute product, creating a wet look finish while adding grip and hold ahead of styling.

STEP 3

TAKE IT TO ONE SIDE

Use a fine-toothed comb to separate hair into a deep side parting on one side, roughly in line with the arch of your eyebrow. One you’ve created the side parting, use a brush to smooth hair over to the other side. For a super-sleek finish, squeeze a little extra gel into hands to smooth over any stray hairs. Done.
