Stylish Slicked Back Hair

Whether you have a lob, or if you’re rocking mermaid hair – one of the most stylish celebrity hair trends to try this year is the slicked back style.

Seen on celebs like Gigi Hadid and Kim Kardashian, this trend looks similar to a slicked back ponytail. But instead of having to tie your hair up and having to deal with a potential headache (we’ve all been there!), you simply slick the front part of your hair back and leave the rest down.

These are some of the Hollywood starlets who have perfected the look.

“The slick back hairstyle portrays sophistication and confidence, as the hair is off the face. You have to be bold to be able to wear something like this,” says Kardashian hair guru Jen Atkin.

Well, not only is this look super stylish, but it’s also the perfect way to see you through until your next hair wash day.

So How Can You Get The Look?

Step one: Spray your hair with a texture spray before you blow-dry it.

Step two: Blow-dry your hair up at the roots to add volume. (Add more texture spray if necessary).

Step three: Blow-dry the sides smooth, or if you’re opting for Gigi Hadid’s look you can tousle it up a bit.

Step four: Pin your hair at the sides, keeping the top of your hair volumised.

Step five: Straighten the sides if necessary.

Step six: Add a texture paste to get the desired height to your hair.

Step seven: Finish with hairspray. You don’t want the wind to ruin your beautiful hairdo!

So, what do you say? Will you be rocking this effortless look this season?
