21 Slicked-Back Hairstyles You Can Rock Anytime
Slick Low Pony
Gather up all your hair and pull it back, slicking back any stray hair to avoid frizz, flyaways, and bumps. This sleek ponytail will last all day long.
Neat Bun
Use gel or pomade to slick your hair back, then place the bun as high or low as you’d like. Leave out a few side tendrils for added visual interest.
High Pigtails
High pigtails are a fun and stylish option. Tie back your ponytails with some scrunchies for a playful twist.
Slicked Pixie
For a sleek and modern pixie, slick back your hair. This also gets the hair out of your face, allowing you to go about your day-to-day activities.
Messy Bun
If you don’t want a perfectly sleek look, opt for a sleek messy bun. Pile your hair on top of your head to form a messy bun, then slick back the top and sides.
