As a mom of two children under the age of 3, my life gets pretty chaotic. So every second I to spend with my kids is extremely valuable. To make the most of my time with them, I’m always looking for ways to be more time-efficient in other areas. That includes hair maintenance and styling. I don’t have room on my schedule anymore to spend 45 minutes at home fixing my hair, let alone rushing to Drybar for a blowout.

I cut my hair super short recently because I was getting tired of spending so much time styling it. I was exhausted by the maintenance longer hair calls for. Also, I just really love the way my hair looks when it’s short! It’s crazy because I used to think I looked sexier with longer hair. Now it’s the complete opposite. I feel more chic and sexy with my short hairdo.

When I cut my hair recently, stylist to the stars Ruslan Nureev helped me achieve the perfect look. Some of my Instagram followers have asked how my hair is so straight and slick. So I asked Ruslan how he did it. Here are his tips!

STEP 1
While it’s damp, prep your hair with Oribe moisturizing creme.

STEP 2
Blow-dry the hair using a Dyson dryer and a YS Park round brush.

STEP 3
Spray Bed Head Shine spray to all the hair.

STEP 4
Using a good flat iron, like one from Harry Josh Pro Tools, iron each small section of hair, focusing on the ends.

STEP 5
Press hard when you’re going toward the ends, and apply more Shine spray.
