Rita Ora shows that even if you have a bob, you don't have to buck the trend - the sassy style works with any length locks. It's also a great excuse to go bold with your beauty and try a hot red lip to compliment the edgy look.

Kim's ultra-glitzy locks are down to a parted slicked back style.

Use a fine comb to create the sleekest style possible then don't forget to spray with hair lacquer!
Another supermodel sporting the slick hair trend is the gorgeous Jourdan Dunn. Textured and afro hair can be trickier to get super-sleek though, so try extra strong gel and mousse products to ensure a more precise finish.

Jessica Alba's sleek updo is one way to embrace the slick trend. Just comb through mousse or gel depending on how wet you want your hair to look and tighten with a hair band, pins and grips. Voilà!
Jennifer Lopez opts for a slick bun on the red carpet in keeping with 2015's hot hair trend. Brushing her honey brown locks into a tight ballet style bun, the actress tames her wild A-list tresses. To copy her look try bulking out your bun with some padding and use gel products to scrape your hair into the crown of your head.
Beyoncé's sleek ponytail is all about precision. To recreate this slick updo, time, care and attention needs to be spent combing all your hair into one tight point at the back of your head. Use mousse to tame your tresses before attempting to put it up and comb through gel whilst working with your locks.
Alicia Keys goes for slick glamour on the red carpet by sweeping her chocolate locks all the way back to her crown for a vintage twist. Rather than focusing just on the fringe, she's combed product down through the lengths for a smouldering finish.
