Looking to add a dramatic vibe to your party hairstyle? Go for the slicked back look!

Wet, slicked back hairstyles are in vogue this season, and boy do they look good! While you can create this hairstyle with short, medium-length or long hair, it works best with straight to wavy tresses.

Here's a step-by-step tutorial on how you can create this sleek, runway-inspired hairstyle:

You'll need:

- A frizz remover hair cream

- A strand-smoother serum spray

- A strong hold hairstyling gel

- A strong hold hair spray

- A tail comb

Get the look

Step one

Smooth-in a small amount of frizz remover cream through your hair to detangle knots.

Step two

Spritz some strand-smoother serum spray to make your tresses smooth and glossy.

Step three

Work in a coin-sized amount of strong hold hair gel through your hair. This will lend a good hold and extra shine to your strands and prep them for the slicked back look.

Step four

Using your tail comb, create two straight side parts, brush back the hair sections and secure them with bobby pins at the back of your head as tightly as possible to create a smooth, pulled-back finish. (Refer to the image above)

Step five

Comb back the remaining front hair to cover the pinned-up side sections and create a slicked back look.

Step six

Finally, spritz a generous amount of strong hold hairspray to set your hairstyle.

This is a classic example of a slicked back party hairstyle. You can create your own variations too! Here are a few other options that you can try:

- Pin-up just one side of your hair

- Create a middle part and wear your hair loose

- Gather all your sleek tresses in a ponytail

- Make a smooth and shiny French twist

No matter which slicked back hairstyle you choose, remember to team it up with smoky eye make-up to complete your party look!
