The slicked back look - how to nail it like Kristen Stewart

Slicked back hair is big on the red carpet – Kristen Stewart, Eva Longoria, Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lawrence have all nailed this look.

So how’s it done without looking oily, or like you’ve just been caught in the rain? We’ve been wondering. Fortunately, Handbag.com has been talking to hair genius Charles Worthington to get the low-down.

He told the website: “It's a clean, fresh and very simple look, but yes, you need to be careful of it looking greased back, rather than slick.

"It's best to start by combing your hair back while it's still damp, then spray lots of hairspray over it, until it's almost wet with hairspray.” We like Lavera Volume and Shine Hair Spray for this.

Charles goes on to say: “Then when it's dry, you'll be left with that slicked back look plus a little volume thanks to the spray, rather than a waxy greased effect.”

He also recommends putting a few hair clips behind the ears, to help hold it back.
