The Sleek Look is a go-to everyday look for many gentlemen. It's not just suited to the older gent, but increasingly embraced by younger men. What makes the modern trend look: Sleekly styled hair no longer looks cemented, like it did back in the day, but more natural and lively. To be able to style a trendy Sleek Look, your covering hair needs to have a certain length, ideally about six to eight centimeters.
How to style the modern Sleek Look
For a modern Sleek Look, the following styling hints are important: Don't add product to wet, but to blowdried hair. That way, the finish doesn't look too shiny or stiff. In a first styling step, comb hair back. Follow with a lightly textured pomade or hair gel and slick covering hair towards the back of your head. If you want a very accurate look, use a comb, but you can also apply product using your hands.
Tip: Men with slightly wavy hair can also wear the Sleek Look in a few easy steps. Simply use straighteners before styling (don't forget to use heat protectant spray) and finish with gel, wax or pomade.
These 3 features make the Sleek Look Trend
- Men with distinctive features wear the trend style particularly well, as it really draws attention to the face.
- Sleek Look + tuxedo = High Performance. But it also looks amazing in a deliberate clash with jeans and leather jacket, for everyday wear.
- Designer stubble or a full beard? No thanks. The Sleek Look is on point, with a cleanly shaved, beardless face.
