How many times have you gotten ready to go out and were so frustrated with your hair, just wanted to put it up, and not deal with it, but you couldn’t figure out how to and still look cute? Being that it happens to me hmm maybe twice a weekend, I decided to follow a common Hollywood trend of slicking my hair back. Here are a few different ways it’s being done:
SLICKED BACK AND DOWN: Megan Fox at the MTV Movie Awards looking greasy fab
SLICKED BACK PONYTAIL: Beyonce on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK (P.S How AMAZING is her navy blue eye shadow?! Watch the behind the scenes footage of this shoot here)
SLICKED BACK BUN: Kim Kardashian on virtually every red carpet event these days from her endorsement launches to the Teen Choice Awards (notice how you can go from elegant to fun with this look just by the height placement of the bun)
For starters, NOT a fan of the way Megan Fox did the slicked back look. It looks like she hasn’t showered in days or decided to put oil randomly on the top of her head, but I must say props to her- she is probably the only woman in America who can wear her hair like that and still look stunning. #notfair
If you decide to rock this look, stick to the bottom two. Beyonce and Kim are just two of many who have been slicking their hair back these days. My favorite part about this is how much it brings out your face. By slicking your hair back, you’re bringing a lot more attention to your face, in a good way of course, but here’s a tip:
- For those of you who aren’t a fan of the hair line on your forehead, you can still wear this look! Just wear your hair the way Beyonce has it in the Harper’s Bazaar picture. By parting your hair down the middle and tightly pulling it back, your disguising your hair line by covering up all those little hairs that just won’t stay down.
- For those of you who have a more defined hair line on your forehead, I definitely recommend wearing it like Kim. It’s the best way to accentuate your BEST facial features.
P.S I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this, but who else loves Kim K’s hair line? Are celebs just born without baby hairs? #poweroflaserhairremoval
