How to do smart hair: video

Proms, graduation, summer parties and festivals – this time of year is littered with major dos at varying levels of swank. But one theme runs throughout: you want your hair to look good. Obviously standards might slip when you're at a festival (that's what hats and snapbacks are for), but that doesn't mean you can't turn up on day one looking like the Wolf of Wall Street. And if you are going to the kind of party that would make the Made in Chelsea crowd jealous, then you need to bring your A-game.

Step 1: For this particular style, you need a bit of length, but we'll be tackling different dos for different lengths in future How To videos. First, wet your hair and then towel it off – straight after the shower works or just spritz it if you don't have time.

Step 2: Get some quality product, like this Featherweight Wax from Uppercut Deluxe. Warm it up in your hands, but not too much, before evenly running it through your hair so it's slicked back and you look a bit like an assassin.

Step 3: Get yourself a half-decent pocket comb with different levels of teeth, then carefully part your hair at the side and comb out until there's a clean line. Finally, dry it all off with a hairdryer, making sure you comb throughout, and then give it a bit of hairspray so it doesn't come apart as soon as you break a sweat.
