Red carpet prom hairstyle: Gwyneth Paltrow

If you want a modern sleek look, then steal Gwyneth Paltrow’s hairstyle. Sunshine-Antonioni tells you how:

1. Begin by using a smoothing styler like TIGI Bed Head After-Party Smoothing Cream, $14.95 throughout your damp hair.

2. Blow dry hair to 90 percent dry.

3. Begin in the nape, taking one-inch thick sections (1/2 inch for very thick hair). Spray each section with a shine spray before ironing with a flat iron to lock in extra shine. (Starting in the back helps you to get the hardest part finished first before your arms get too tired.)

4. Continue like this until your entire head is complete.
