Beauty trends are cyclical, so every few years retro trends come back and are suddenly the talk of the town again. This year that beauty trend is slicked-back hair. Dating all the way back to the ’80s, gelled hair is one of those styles that (when done right) can look so cool and take whatever you’re wearing to the next level. The gelled look was all over the spring 2020 shows, popping up on the runways of designers like Prabal Gurung and Sally LaPointe.
A slicked-back style is the perfect answer for second-day hair or when you just don’t have time to wash it, since the gelled look will cover up any oil at the roots. It’s also a chic way to show off your accessories, by pulling your hair back and out of the way it gives your earrings or statement necklace a chance to shine.

Achieving a slicked-back style is easier than it looks, you’ll just need some kind of hair gel or molding compound to keep your strands in place and give it that subtle wet look.
