8 Looks That Will Change How You Feel About Slicked-Back Hair
Volume, texture, body—all the hallmarks of enviable hair. Sleek—dare we say slick—hair has traditionally been a less popular option. A recent rush of celebrities sporting the slicked-back look, however, may be changing all that.
Scroll through to see if celebs like Gigi Hadid, Rita Ora, and more make you re-think super-sleek tresses!
Slick, but not severe, Gigi Hadid’s style is easy to copy. The key to making it work? Applying a voluminizing mousse at the roots for hold and a high-shine styling balm (like Oribe’s Balm d'Or Heat Styling Shield, $43) mid-shaft to ends to smooth out the lengths.
If you want try Kristen Stewart’s almost wet-looking style, we recommend a generous dose or gel or pomade, like Layrite’s Super Shine Hair Pomade ($16).
