or fromneartofar.files.wordpress.com/201…000

when i try and style it this way for work or something it either doesn't stay even with hair spray or doesn't look natural like stuck back but doesn't look like products have been used..

which hair gels or products can I use to get this affect. I've tried slikhaar but it's expensive and only available in denmark.

Thanks

Search for Schwarzkopf OSiS+. This is professional-grade and very popular with many hair stylists. Get the sprays for those type of hairstyles.

Hair spray or wax also would you apply to damp hair or dry the brush back?

I'd recommend Fish Fibre by Fish Soho, costs around £6 from Boots. Either that or their Superfish matt products are excellent too, they hold all day but don't leave your hair feeling overloaded, they can be found in Boots too. Or you can use their site

For the styles you're trying to achieve:
1. Dry with hairdryer, blowing the hair outwards, up and back. Use a flat concentrator nozzle. Warm setting on hairdryer.
2. Apply (a little) wax or cream-based styling product. You can skip this step but it helps add texture.
3. Apply spray on hair to set. Use quick short bursts of cold setting on hairdryer.

Most wax will not hold the hair back like that for the whole day. Or, you end up using too much wax to keep it there which doesn't look good.

As I said, it's okay to skip the wax/cream as it's there to add texture, not set. Just using hair spray is okay too - that's to set the hair and hold it there for the day.

You will need a stronger spray for a comb back style. However, moouse, comb, leave to dry can also work. It can be dependent on the texture of your hair, thickness, length and exact style you're going for. Hope this helps.

Wax: depends how smooth or textured you want your hair to be. Usually cream for finer and clay for more textured.
Spray: usually the shorter cans and ones with trigger-type sprays are (MUCH) stronger. The taller cans are probably what you're looking for. If your hair is very soft and light, go for a weaker spray; if it's thick and heavy, go for a medium-strong spray.
Comb: a normal comb like this will suffice sallybeauty.com/cut…tml
