Slick and sleek
AS SEEN AT: At Erdem, hair stylist Anthony Turner created a strong centre parting and then greased the hair back into a low ponytail. He did a similar look for J.W. Anderson but this time the parting was taken to the side, as was the pony. However, the hair was equally slicked. At Oscar de la Renta, the hair was tied back into high ponytails with the front covered in gloss and serum – no frizz in sight. WHAT TO ASK FOR: Whether you’re doing it yourself or going to a stylist, the key to getting your hair look slicked and sleek, and not greasy, is to start with clean hair. The other trick is to not slick the entire length of your hair. Do as Anthony did and focus around the hairline so that the rest of your hair has its natural texture. That way, you will get the obvious contrast between sleek and smooth.
TOP TIP: The product combo you need for this look is a mix of a gel-based cream applied first and a wet look hairspray to fix into place. We love Bumble and Bumble Grooming Creme, Dh100, and Oribe Superfine Hairspray, Dh145.
