Heidi Klum's Wet, Slicked-Back Look: FAIL
It takes a lot to make Heidi Klum look bad, but this hairstyle isn't doing much for the supermodel. "Heidi has the 'just got out of the shower' look," says Riccardo Maggiore, celebrity stylist and owner of the Riccardo Maggiore Salon in New York City. "It's very wet and crunchy. This type of look is only good at the beach."
To avoid looking like you ran out of time to blow-dry your hair, Maggiore suggests using a small amount of texturizer or hair balm on dry hair to add definition. Continue by smoothing and styling the hair straight back with a comb. Add more texture to the front section only and comb again, stopping in the middle of the head. Allow the rest of your hair to flow straight down, which will create a slicked-back look on top. Maggiore also suggests using a bobby pin behind the ear to secure if needed.
