The slicked back hair do has been popping up all over the red carpet. So how can we all pull of the trend—Jennifer Yepez for ghd explains.  “I wanted to create hair that was simple yet glamorous to help show off her gorgeous dress.”

“First I dried Gigi’s hair using the ghd air™ hairdryer and ghd ceramic vented radial brush size 3. I started by blowing Gigi’s hair, beginning from the nape of her neck and working towards the front. Once I got to the section surrounding her ears, I applied moose and thickening spray near roots and teased the hair to create a glamorous look straight from the 70s. The secret to her sleek, slicked back look was the new ghd platinum™ styler, that straightened the hair with ghd’s tri-zone technology™, styling at the optimal temperature of 365 degrees which ensures styles last longer and gives added shine.”

Products used: ghd air™ hairdryer ($225); ghd platinum™ styler ($249); ghd paddle brush ($55), ghd ceramic vented radial brush size 3 ($53). Available at  Sephora,,
FYI: Dress by Emilia Wickstead
