Step away from the curling iron—it’s time to switch things up. Trade those bouncing curls for a chic, slicked-back hairdo this week. Bonus: It takes way less time than curling all that gorgeous hair and requires absolutely no heat.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Run a bit of shine crème through your strands while brushing them back. 

Step 2: Pin the top third of your hair into a temporary topknot.

Step 3: Use a styling mousse to slick back the sides of your hair. Use a brush to flatten any strays before securing each side with crisscrossed bobby pins.

Step 4: Take down the topknot and smooth your hair down and back for a sleek, humidity-proof hairdo.
