Sometimes when you wake up in the morning, you just don't have any time to do your hair but you do have somewhere to be where a bed head bird's nest just isn't something you can get away with. So, what do you do? Well, first of all you don't panic. After that, you calmly follow the easy tutorial below to get a slick side sweep in mere minutes.

It's a style that will make you look pulled-together and hide any greasy roots you didn't wake up in time to wash!

Step one: Start by brushing your hair through then flip it all over to one side. It doesn't matter which side you choose but we advise you to go for the one that showcases your 'best side' to make sure you feel your best – or as good as you can when starting the day in a big stressful rush.

Step two: Next, you need to warm a small amount of wax in your hands then run it through your hair, working from the part outward. Add more as you go until you have a slight sheen and a reasonable amount of hold without your hair looking gunky.

Step three: On the side of your part with less hair, flatten everything against your head then pin at the nape of your neck, allowing the loose hair on the other side to fall over the pins. If you have the time, French braid the hair on this side of your head before you pin it to add some extra detail.

Step four: Shape, scrunch and muss the rest of your hair as desired, double-check the back, and you're good to go!
