Slicked back hair

Sometimes, the simplest hairstyles are the best and this short slicked back style for men is a prime example of how true that can be. It's a smooth look that keeps the hair totally under control, making it a really versatile 'do.

To find out how to recreate it on your own hair, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with towel dried hair, sweep it all back off your face and leave it to air dry until it's only slightly damp. If you don't have much time to spare, use a blow-dryer to speed things up. Start at your hairline and run the dryer from front to back.

Step 2
Warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty in your hands to emulsify it, then work it through all of your hair.

Step 3
Add more gum as needed until you have a good amount of hold, but take care not to overload your strands.

Step 4
To add volume, massage the roots on top with your fingertips after applying the putty.

Step 5
Gently smooth your hair over with a comb for a neat finish. Go lightly to avoid crushing the volume you just created.

Whether you need a sharp hairstyle for a night out, a pulled-together look for a special occasion, or you just want to keep your hair right where you want it, this style has you covered!
