Confession: Summer is our favorite season, only because it’s socially acceptable to work that just-emerged-from-the-pool-like-Phoebe-Cates look at any day or time. Whether you’ve been hitting the waves or sitting poolside, Danielle Cirilli has a slick look to keep you pool cool all summer long.
For a wet and wild look, start with a comb and create a deep side part in your hair. Work a gel (try Bumble and Bumble Bb. Gel) into large sections of your hair, coming through to distribute product, and set hair as desired. The trick to this look is using a flexible gel to ensure you don’t end up with a helmet of hair.
Slicked back hair is perfect for disguising unwashed hair or braving the summer heat. It can easily be altered to fit your look too: add bobby pins or barrettes, pull hair back into a half-updo or bun, the possibilities are endless! Keep makeup simple to enhance your slick hair: Apply a tinted moisturizer, a bit of mascara, and a peach lip stain, for a beach bronzed summer look.
