Hi, everyone. I'm hairstylist, Amanda Shackleton from, and I'm here today to talk to you about slicked back hair. I get a lot of questions people asking me is it in style, is it out of style, I think that sliced back hair is one of those classic looks that if you do it correctly, it's going to look great all the time. So what I've done is I've taken a little bit of wax, it's a very very light wax and I've put a little bit into the palm of my hands, gone ahead and worked it in and I've decided to put a part on the model and with the part I'm going to go ahead and slick the sides back. I'm keeping the ends of her hair curled and I'm going to do this kind of slicked back hairstyle in a very vintage kind of feel. I'm going to take a small bobby pin and I'm just going to secure the hair down at the back of the head just like that. We'll go ahead and we'll do the other side, kind of direction the hair the way you want it to go, make sure you hold it down very tightly and then take one more bobby pin and go ahead and just keep that down. And there you go, that's how I would suggest wearing your hair if you decide you want to do it slicked back. It's a very modern yet retro kind of look. I'm Amanda Shackleton and I'm a hairstylist.
