7 Slicked Back Styles for Short Hair

I cut my hair way too short earlier this year but I found that a few slicked back looks really worked with it. Here we go!

HOW TO:

First things first, spray down your hair so it's damp. Then rub a bit of water-based pomade in your fingers and spread it through your damp hair.


Here are some suggested supplies. This Layrite pomade is excellent!























1. Side Part Slick

Part with the pointed end of a comb then comb down the sides and pin behind your ears with bobby pins.

2. Straight Back Headband

Comb straight back, add a headband, and fluff up the back with your fingers.

3. Classic Slick

You'll need a little extra pomade for this one. Add the pomade throughout your hair and then comb straight back. Use a straightening iron before slicking back if you're looking for an even sleeker look. Pin at the back of your neck until the hair dries and hardens a bit. Spray with hairspray.



4. Feminine Double Swoop

Side part with the pointed end of a comb then comb. Then swoop it back on each side and pin it up with bobby pins.
