There's no doubt that the slicked back hairstyle is super sexy. First of all, you get to put your gorgeous face front and center! It works best when you focus your heaviest makeup on one specific feature of your face, whether its bold lips, smokey eyes, or perfectly highlighted cheekbones. It also adds a sleek, edgy look to a tailored suit or plunging neckline. Here's all you need to know to achieve the look!
1. Begin with damp to wet hair that is freshly washed and combed. Add a dollop of mousse, we like Oribe Surfcomber Mousse, into your hands and work it through the front of your hair to the ends to add texture and stability as you start to brush your hair back.
2. Play around to create your perfect slicked back look that works with your face shape. Then, use a blowdryer to blow hair up from the crown of the hair if you want more volume up top, while working your brush to sculpt your hair to what works for you.
3. Once you have the look, begin by putting a small amount of Steam hair oil in the palm of your hands, rub your hands together and run your fingers through your hair from root to ends. The oil will help keep your hair looking sleek and "wet" yet stay soft as it dries.
4. Now it's time to apply the gel, we like to use R&Co Motorcycle since it’s a soft gel that holds yet doesn’t stay too stiff. Blow dry as you brush the sides of your hair tight behind your ears. Add a shine inducing hairspray like Oribe Apres Beach and you're all set!
