Off the Runway: Acqua Girl
From Giorgio Armani to Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren, slicked-back tresses dominated the runway for Spring '09. And, given the ease and practicality of a "wet" updo, it's a look that's sure to be seen on the street (red carpet, and at a social event near you) this season, too.
The key to this look is in the product used to style. For slicked-back strands that don't flake or fall apart, be sure to use a strong-hold formulation and brush through a small amount of gel (again) once your hair is dry. This will give your locks that sexy, lacquered look.
If you have....
Short hair, try AG hardjel.
Medium to long locks, use Bumble & bumble gellac.
Wavy, tousled tresses, try Avon Advance Techniques Shaping Gel.
Course, curly hair, use MIZANI Silk Finishing Gel.
