Slicked Hair How To: The A-List Approved Style

Fancy making a statement with your hairstyle? Then it’s time to try slicked-back hair.

The edgy do’ has been a regular on the catwalk but now it’s storming celeb land. Just last night we saw Made In Chelsea girl, Rosie Fortescue join the super-sleek crew when she headed out to celebrate Millie Mackintosh’s new fashion range.

Over the past few weeks we’ve seen the likes of Kim Kardashian, Rita Ora, Mollie King and Taylor Swift all rocking the style, so it’s clearly a winner in the beauty stakes.


For a super-clean finish a la Taylor Swift use a fine-tooth comb to work a blob of VO5’s Extreme Style Freeze Gel, £4.19, through your roots. Don’t take the gel any further back than your crown, and keep the rest of your hair tucked behind your ears.


Or, follow in Mollie King’s footsteps and give the style a relaxed twist by using Label M’s Matt Paste, £23.50 and M&S Wide Tooth Comb, £2.


We reckon this is the perfect look for big night out and it takes only seconds to perfect (yay!), pair it with killer smoky eyes and a LBD for a winning style combo.
