9 Ways to Rock Slicked Back Hair like a Celeb
From the runway to the red carpet, it seems like everywhere we turn, we’re spotting slicked back ‘dos. Whether it’s a result of last season’s ode to wet (often draped across the forehead) hair on the runway, or a much needed diversion from the current cult-like obsession with the lob, celebs are embracing the trend in full force. See how these nine celebs rocked this super sleek style.
1. Alexa Chung: For Alexa, slicked back doesn’t mean ditching her signature waves. A sleek boyish side part gives way to lightly coiffed curls that keep with her flirty, feminine style. (Photo via Ian Gavan/Getty)
2. Rihanna: The 57th Grammy Awards was like a showcase for Rihanna’s always-on-point style. While her over-the-top Giambattista Valli dress was the talk of the night, we love her second, more toned-down look too. Her slicked back hairstyle and oversized suit riffed on a classic Wall Street-esque image. (Photo via Larry Busacca/Getty)
3. Taylor Swift: Taylor went sleek and sultry for the Elle Style Awards, ditching her go-to flirty, feminine look for a gutsy side part and tucked back ‘do. (Photo via Ian Gavan/Getty)
4. Kim Kardashian: Besides debuting a show-stopping new look at Balmain’s fall/winter 2015 runway show — the platinum blonde locks, if you were unsure — Kim opted for a slicked back style for a high-fashion look. (Photo via Pascal Le Segretain/Getty)
