BEAUTY BAR: Sleek and Chic

Don’t get me wrong, I am a girly girl by all means. Lately, however, curls and neon nail polish just aren’t going to cut it. For seasons on end, celebrities have sported classic up-do’s with evening gowns and beach waves with cocktail dresses to red carpet events. Just like clothing trends, beauty trends are in one day and out the other. After all, fashion never sleeps so neither do we. The Balenciaga spring/summer 2015 collection, Rosie Huntington and Jessica Alba all have one thing in common (besides defining the word fierce) and that is: the slicked hair trend. It is a polar opposite of the delicate hairstyles that have dominated the beauty world in past seasons, however, it is spreading like wildfire from red carpets to college campuses across the globe.

I spotted this Fashionista rocking her middle part with slicked hair on both sides and a killer outfit to go along with it. Her look was very edgy which made this sleek hairstyle the cherry on top. The slicked hair trend is a lot more simple than curls, braids and up-do’s which is what makes it all the more perfect. The simplicity leaves room for eccentric pants, trendy shoes and glam accessories—just like this Fashionista wore. Try slicked hair with a high neck top for a couture, Style Guru approved summer look.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To nail your own slicked hair look you will need a hair straightener, gel, flyaway serum, hairspray and heat protectant. It important that you keep your hair feeling as fab as it looks. Be sure to use deep conditioning treatments throughout the year, especially during pool season since chlorine is so damaging to our luscious locks.
