Looking for a hairstyle that’s both trendy and professional? Slicked back hair is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only is it the perfect hairstyle for work, but if you style it correctly, your slicked back locks will stay firmly in place as you party into the night.
Whether you want to create a stylish new look or tame your curls into submission once and for all, a slicked-back hairstyle is a way to go.
So, without further ado, here’s how to slick back your hair:
- Wash your hair, then towel-dry so it’s still a bit damp.
- Apply Da’Dude Da’Wax and distribute evenly through the longer
- Comb your hair towards the back of your head, smoothing it over with your hand.
- Allow your hair to air dry if you prefer a natural, looser style, or blow dry your locks into place to make sure the "slick" holds.
- Once your hair is completely dry, you can apply extra product for a super firm hold. If you prefer to keep some of the natural texture in your hair, you can leave it as it is.

Commonly asked questions about slicked back hair
Slicked back hair has become incredibly fashionable in recent years. So if you want to jump aboard the style train, there are a few things you need to know.
To comb or not to comb?
Whether to style using a comb or your fingers is entirely your choice. Using your fingers is certainly the easiest way to move your hair around and distribute the product evenly, but it can be messy. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty, you can use a comb to style your hair instead, bear in mind that the finer the teeth, the neater your hairstyle will appear.
Clay, wax, or pomade?
Wax is generally the best product to use when slicking back your hair, as it’s so versatile and easy to apply. Clay should be used sparingly, as it dries out your hair and makes it more difficult to style, whereas pomade can be challenging to work with, and oil-based varieties are notoriously hard to wash out. With our Da’Wax Styling Wax, there is no risk of flattening your natural waves or curls, and you won’t lose that all-important volume.
Can you slick back curly hair?
Yes, absolutely. Slicked back hair is perfect for those with unruly curls, and it brings a unique twist to the style. It’s best to slick the hair back when it’s still slightly wet after the shower and work the product through with your hands. Afterward, you’ll want to blow dry the hair backwards to create a smooth surface. Avoid using a comb or brushing too hard with your fingers, as this could flatten those beachy waves.
Voila! Now you can rock a super slick style that will hold all day long, whatever the weather. Slicked back hair creates a timeless look that will always be in fashion, so don’t forget to pick up your Da'Dude Da'Wax Extra Strong Hold Hair Styling Wax from our site, and join our VIP club for freebies and exclusive discounts.
