Preppy Hair Gets A Too-Cool Makeover

So, we don't want to say that R29 is anti-preppiness. But, you know, you might notice that there aren't a ton of polo shirts and Bermuda shorts around these parts. What we do love? A super cool, Buddy Holly spin on classic '50s greaser style. Which, obviously, is a look that our main hair man, Michael Dueñas, knows a thing or two about. (Could he be any more adorable?)
So, to help our producer Jem get in touch with her inner slickster, Dueñas gave her the step-by-step on giving her curly pixie a totally sleek makeover. Using just a blow dryer, a comb, and a couple of key products, you too can rock this look in a snap. (We think John Travolta would approve, natch.) Tune in to learn how to totally transform your short 'do!
