Some wet look hairstyles can only really work when teamed with a sultry night out look and Barbara Palvin's slicked back updo is one of them and boy does it work! While we would never wear it to the office, we just love the clean yet dramatic vibe of this party-ready hairstyle.
To find out how to recreate Barbara's slick style from the Cannes Film Festival for a bold night out look of your own, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below.
Get the look
Due to the wet-look finish, you don't need to wash your hair before styling. Just make sure you detangle it first to make the following steps go as smoothly as possible.
Part your hair deep on your favorite side with a tail comb to get a straight, accurate line, then brush your hair on eaither side to fix the part in place.
Smooth some regular strength hair gel from your hairline to the back of your head, using a comb to get even coverage. Leave the ends loose and totally 'dry' for now.
At the back, gather your hair and secure it into a smooth French twist. Add more gel as you go to help hold the hair in place and secure with as many bobby pins as needed - the exact amount depends on how long and thick your hair is.
To create an all-over wet look, apply some more gel to the twist after pinning it in place.
