Hi my name is Teri Lynne and I'm here with David O'Donnell. And we're here on behalf
of Expert Village and in this segment I'm going to show you how to slick back your hair.
So you want to start with very damp hair. So his is a little damp, and we want it a
little wetter than this. You don't want it completely soaking wet. This is just a spray
bottle of water. It's good to have one of these on hand when you're doing your hair.
And if it dries and you don't like the way it looks, you can just dampen it and fix it.
OK, so you want to take either a brush or a comb, whatever moves more freely through
your hair, and you want to just start at the crown, or at the, yes you can start at the
crown and start slicking back and then work forward towards your hair line. And then if
you want to choose you can either go straight back, I'm not really a big fan of that look.
I like to choose a part so you pick a side that you want to slick more over to. I'm just
choosing the right side.
Just comb it and you really want to make sure these sides are back. Those you don't want
falling back in. If you want to use a bit of product for something like this, I recommend
a styling cream to put over top of it just to hold your hair like this. A little bit
of hairspray works as well. You can use gel. This is a bit more of a formal look. If you've
got somewhere where you're trying to look a bit more professional and not so shaggy,
you might want to want to have your hair nicely slicked back like this and there we have it.
