Nothing says “I’m sexy and I know it” quite like a slicked back hairdo! Kanye West’s wifey Kim Kardashian got all glammed up in a completely different way than normal for an appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” earlier this year. Instead of rocking a sexy, curve hugging dress and perfectly curled locks like she’s accustomed to, the reality star sported a grey menswear-inspired suit with a sleek androgynous hairstyle to match.
“This look works so well on Kim because it shows off her beautiful face,” explains Dominick Pucciarello, celebrity hairstylist at Mizu New York Salon. Plus, she’s fully confident in how she looks so she totally pulls it off with ease. Luckily, according to him, it’s a very easy look to recreate at home and only takes a few simple steps, which you can follow below.
The Slicked Back Kim Kardashian Hairstyle Tutorial:
Step 1: Start by blow drying your hair straight with a deep side part. Use a Mason Pearson brush and a great anti-frizz serum, like Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax, to achieve stick straight strands like Kim’s.
Step 2: Next, grab Gel Serum by Oribe and mix it with a glossy hair cream, like Kiehl’s Crème With Silk Groom, and evenly distribute throughout your hair from roots to ends. This will hold your mane in place and give it that sleek, wet look you’re seeking.
Step 3: Finally, brush your hair back and behind your ears, making sure to maintain the deep side part and keep it off your shoulders and on your back instead. All done!
Whether you’ve got an upcoming wedding to attend or a Sunday rooftop brunch with girlfriends, Kim’s slicked back ‘do is a definite no-brainer for any occasion, really. “It’s a pretty bold style since you don’t have your hair framing and hiding your face, so you absolutely need to be sure of yourself like Kardashian to make it work,” advises Pucciarello.
