Award season may be over but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t rock red carpet hair whenever you want. Slicked back hair is a classic hairstyle that never goes out of style so we’ve got a great tutorial to help you out. Whether you’re out on a date or a girls night out, you’ll love this easy hairstyle that takes minimal effort.


You’ll need these styling products:

1. Straightening iron

2. Straightening spray

3. Weightless oil spray

4. Hairspray

5. A comb

Now, follow these steps:

1. Part your hair. This hairstyle looks better with a deep side part but you can part wherever it feels most natural to you.

2. Prep the hair with straightening spray. You can skip this step if your hair is already somewhat straight but for wavy and curly haired girls, spray away.

3. Straighten the hair. Do this as you would normally. Pay special attention to baby hairs as they tend to escape the straightening iron.

4. Spray with the weightless oil. This will give the hair a glossier effect while taming any little flyaways as well.

5. Comb the hair behind the ears. You need a tightly closed comb to make the hair look extra sleek and polished. Comb as much as you need to get that perfect look with no flyaways.

6. Finish with hair spray.
