A slicked back hairstyle can look equally as neat and sophisticated on long hair as it does on short hair. Even better than that, it's really easy to achieve when you have the right products and a few minutes to spare!

This style reminds us of the way hair falls when you've just come up from being underwater. It's naturally relaxed and a bit seductive, making it perfect for an evening look, and is a big favorite of Kim Kardashian. While it might look subtle in terms of a runway look, it's not one we see every day when we're out and about, so expect to make a splash anywhere you go!

We've created a tutorial for you to recreate this minimalist and sleek style yourself. Happy styling!

1/ You need:


Styling putty

2/ Step one

Rub a dime sized amount of styling putty between your palms to warm it up. Then, use your hands to smooth the hair at the top of the head back.

3/ Step two

Comb through your hair, sweeping the hair away from the face, and then let it fall naturally down your back.

4/ Step three

To create some volume at the top, use your fingers to gently massage your scalp. Then use your hands to gently push the hair forward.

Top tip:For extra volume, you could also use the comb to tease sections of hair at the top of the head before you add your styling putty.

5/ Step four

Use the palms of your hands to smooth the hair out, getting rid of any leftover ridges in the hair from the comb.

6/ Step five

Spray your hair all over with hairspray to lock it in.

As for the rest of your hair, you can style it straight and smooth or curl the ends. Enjoy!
