VIDEO | Slicked Back Hair



This I-just-stepped-out-of-a-swimming pool-hairdo isn't anything new. Every season there is at least one designer that chooses slicked back hair for his models, we've seen it any other editorial, on the red carpet and on a 14 year old Kate Moss in the 1990s. Though it seems that it has never made it to the streets. I've never seen anyone wear a ton of gel in their hair like this on their way to work. The reason might be that if you do it too often your hair will probably start to fall out at the front and you'll end up with a mullet. But disregarding all that I thought I'd give it a try; it involved lots of combing and lots, lots of gel but the result was well worth it. I will defenitely be doing this slick coif more often.

Jo said...

well that's very cool! you're kind of... impressive on video.
I think it hasn't really taken to the streets because it's kind of a hard look to pull off. I know I wouldn't have the guts to try it, but on you it actually works.

I'm not sure what I loved most - the finished hairstyle which is quite exquisite or the process by which you created it, which was mesmerizing.

Thank you so much for sharing and, at the risk of being redundant to other comments on this site, you do have very beautiful eyes.

By the way, if you decided to do anything else with a slicked back look, you would make an admirer very, very happy.
