It’s sleek, it’s smart, and it looks just as good paired with a tuxedo as it does with your everyday jeans and shirt. Well, almost. This season, we’re welcoming back slicked back hair for men in a big way. With its classic yet bad-boy appeal, this uber-cool wet look hair style is clearly back with a bang, adorning the barnets of our favourite male models, it-boys and A-listers alike.
And it couldn’t be easier to achieve – if you’ve got the length it requires (3+ inches will suffice), all you need is some hard holding hair wax or gel and a fine toothed comb; carefully slick it back and you’ll be looking like a dapper gent in no time. But take note, side-fades and man-buns aren’t the greatest when paired with this vintage-inspired look, and can often make the whole thing feel a bit contrived. It’s all about old Hollywood glamour, so try to keep things simple. Combining it with a cool off-duty outfit is all you’ll need to put a contemporary twist on this most classic of cuts.
And if you want to pull off this season’s slicked back hair with total sophistication then your hair should be slightly grown out but of equal length all around. Why not give it a go? Don Draper eat your heart out…Book hair now
