There are some hairstyles that only really work with a glamorous night out look, and Barbara Palvin 's slicked back updo is one of them. While we would never wear it to the office, we just love the clean yet dramatic vibe of this party hairstyle!

If you would like to try it for a night out of your own, follow the tutorial below. What do you think? Are you feeling bold enough?

How to style it

Step 1

Thanks to the wet-look finish, there's no need to wash your hair before styling. Just make sure you detangle it first.

Step 2

Part your hair deep on your favorite side with a tail comb.This will help you to create an accurate, straight line from the front to the back of your head.

Step 3

Smooth some Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel from your hairline to the back of your head, using a comb to get even coverage. Leave the ends loose and 'dry' at this point.

Step 4

At the back, gather your hair and secure it into a French twist. Add more gel as you go to help hold the hair in place.

Step 5

For an all-over wet look, smooth some more gel over the twist after pinning it in place.

That's it!
