Get the Look: Slicked Back Hair

Vivienne Tam ss16 hairstyle

Did you know that one of the quickest (and seemingly effortless) ways to dramatically change your look is to change the way you part your hair? Even though I understand this simple rule, most of the times I simply part my hair to the side. When I saw Vivienne Tam’s NYFW show where models were wearing their sleeked back hair, I thought it could be a fun hairstyle to repeat. Today, I share with you a tutorial on how to replicate this awesome ‘cool school-girl’ look created by Leon Gorman, the lead hair stylist for Red Door Spa.

Step #1: Start with clean hair. Apply Kérastase Smoothing Oil to give your hair shine and vigorous look.

Step #2: Using a comb, apply Kérastase Mousse Bouffante starting from the front of the hair and moving towards the mid-length (learn my trick on how to apply mousse hair products).

Step #3: Wrap the top section of the hair using a head wrap (it should be a see-though one).

Step #4: Apply Kérastase Blow Dry Control Cream on top of the hair secured by the hair wrap and blow dry your hair through it using a diffuser.

Step #5: Once completely dry, remove the hair wrap and apply Kérastase Hairspray for a maximum hold.

    Especially the first picture here with a fantastic slick back hair shows, how wonderful this trend is. You should try it for you. Not only for a special evening or celebrating day, more days. So it could happen, that you also will not be asked more for your russian background. You could post pictures of your experiences. You have the personality for this hair style, absolutely
