Hair trend at the Baftas – The wet look

Jennifer Lawrence and Alicia Vikander stepped out on the red carpet for the Baftas on Sunday evening, both sporting a very on-trend hairstyle, the wet look.

The beauty look was also seen on the SS13 catwalks of Alexander Wang and Rag + Bone.

Sleek, slicked back hair is THE hair trend this spring. Worn poker straight and slicked back away from the face, the look is perfect for exposing beautiful gowns and jewels.

With the help of the experts at Nicky Clarke, you can get the look at home with these tips and using the Nicky Clarke Pro Salon Straightener with Comb.

Using the very latest in technology, innovation and design, the Mayfair Collection is at the cutting edge of hair styling and represents the philosophy of Nicky Clarke’s Mayfair salon: beautifully styled hair for every individual.

This is NOT your ordinary straightener. The Salon Pro Straightener features wide ceramic plates for a smooth shiny finish and a built in comb for salon-style straightening. This unique feature offers optimum styling control.

The straightener is also versatile, with 6 variable heat settings to suit all hair types and tourmaline coated plates to lock in your hair’s natural moisture.

The Salon Pro Straightener With Comb is your own portable hair stylist.

International Creative Director at Nicky Clarke, Warren Holmes gives his expert tips on how to recreate this look…

1. Dry the hair until 90% dry – don’t toss your head upside down, do it in a controlled manner to keep the parting in place and avoid any frizz made by rough drying. Use the dryer in a downwards direction, making sure the roots are flat and away from your forehead.
2. Take two inch sections of hair starting from the front hair line and working backwards.
3. Using a Nicky Clarke Salon Pro Straightener With Comb, straighten the hair from the roots to ends.
4. Straighten in one single motion in order to close the hair cuticle and create sleek hair. The secret to creating that mirrored effect.
