Instagram has replaced the fashion magazines that we spent hours sifting through in our teenage years, and anything that is trending on Instagram today is essentially what’s trending in the fashion world. Instagram has become synonymous with fashion, and one celebrity that is all over everyone’s Insta feeds is Kim Kardashian.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan is known for a lot of things – from Kylie’s uber-successful makeup line to Kim’s SKIMS; from Kendall’s modelling career to Khloe’s history of cheating exes – but one thing they are most known for is their fashion sense. Every cut, colour, or style that is donned by the Kardashian-Jenner clan makes headlines, and Kim is always on top of this pyramid.
Recently, Kim has been in news for her ultra-long and sleek hairstyles featuring both long flowy hair and her half-up hairdos. Kim is the maestro of setting red carpet trends, and this article will break down in detail how you can mimic her ever-so-popular straight, long and flowy hairstyle.
How to Master Kim’s long and sleek flowy hair
This look from Kim is a no-brainer: it features extensions like there is no tomorrow which wouldn’t be that difficult to replicate. So, you should already have long and flowy nano ring hair extensions to match Kim’s hair length. The key here is to use a combination of quality hair products that will help your natural hair and extensions stay frizz-free and sleek all day long.
Step 1: Start with clean hair
The very first step to creating this look is to wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo and deep condition them to lock in its moisture. This hairstyle can only work with fresh and clean hair, which is why this step is necessary.
Step 2: Prep your hair while damp
Once your hair is squeaky clean, the next step is to pay attention to how you dry them. Be sure to brush your hair when they are slightly damp and create a centre part. You can use a fine-toothed or a rat-tail comb to do so, and if you have trouble locating the centre of your scalp, simply place the comb right above your nose and follow up towards the crown.
Step 3: Dry your locks
The very obvious next step here is to blow dry your hair. Before you begin, be sure to use a heat protectant on your locks to keep your natural hair and extensions protected from the heat coming from the blow dryer. You should use a round drying brush and have the nozzle of your blow dryer pointing downwards to reduce the number of flyaways and smooth hair cuticles.
Step 4: Straighten them like there’s no tomorrow
Now that your hair is all dry, use a straightener to further smooth out any bumps or irregularities in your hair. Once again, be sure to apply a heat protectant to prevent your hair from losing its shine and appearing dull.
Step 5: Make sure they are sleek
Now that your hair is all straight, long, and flowy, what’s left to do is to make sure that they are sleek. Use a soothing balm or stow away any loose flyaways and create a sleek and shiny look. Also, use the same balm to tuck a small section of your front hair behind your ears to get Kim’s signature look.
Recreating and mimicking red carpet trends is much easier than you think, only if you know the right way to do so. The above-mentioned steps and tricks will help you recreate Kim’s signature look in no time.
