Rita Ora is the latest stylish celeb to jump on the slicked back hair trend, sporting the look at the Elle Style Awards, although we've seen her rock this look before.

Last night hair stylist to the stars Chris Appleton gave her the ultimate slick back style.

But she is not alone. Nicole Scherzinger did it on the X Factor, Jennifer Lawrence did it at the BAFTAs, while Kim Kardashian, Kristen Stewart and Eva Longoria have all nailed the fierce slicked-back hairstyle on the red carpet too.

How to do slicked back hair


Hair genius Charles Worthington shared his expert advice...

"It's a clean, fresh and very simple look, but yes, you need to be careful of it looking greased back, rather than slick.

"It's best to start by combing your hair back while it's still damp, then spray lots of hairspray over it, until it's almost wet with hairspray.

"Then when it's dry, you'll be left with that slicked back look plus a little volume thanks to the spray, rather than a waxy greased effect."

TOP TIP: "I tend to put a few clips behind the ears too to help hold it back!"

So what do you think? Will you be trying this on a night out?
