Wet look hair is back, and here’s how you can rock it…
What you’ll need
A firm favourite of good hair heroines Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid, the slicked-back look is the perfect party hairstyle. Why? Not only does it look utterly cool and modern, but it’s an ideal way to keep hair off your face while still reaping all the glam rewards of having your hair down. Not a pro at styling night out hairstyles? Don’t fret: you don’t need to make a trip to the hairdressers to pull off this look, because we’re going to show you how to achieve it yourself. So get your gel at the ready, and follow our simple step-by-step tutorial below.
Easy night out hairstyles: The slicked-back look
If you have naturally curly or frizzy hair, don’t worry: you can still rock this look! Wash your hair with products that’ll help smooth and control frizz, like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Restoring Shampoo and Conditioner.
To tease, lift the section of hair up in front of your face, and use your teasing comb to lightly brush the back of the hair downwards towards your scalp.
Repeat this teasing motion until you have achieved the desired amount of volume (if you ask us: the bigger the better!).
Remember: you don’t want to reverse all of the teasing you’ve just done by brushing too hard, so a gentle hand is key here!
Start by working the gel through one side of your hair, smoothing the strands backwards as you go. The best thing about this gel? It has a long lasting hold, but it’s non-sticky and non-greasy, making it the perfect styling product for women.
Once you’ve finished smoothing one side of your hair, repeat the same smoothing process on the other side and on the top teased portion.
Top tip: You can use your hands to smooth the gel, but for a smoother finish take your teasing comb and lightly brush it over the surface of your hair. Optional: for extra security, spray a light mist of the TRESemmé Get Sleek Creation Hairspray over your locks to help hold the look.
See? Night out hairstyles can be simple, stylish and stress-free. Win-win!
