Slick and sleek

Friday - - Fashion -

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.
