The sleek hair look has taken the beauty world by storm with celebs rocking it at various events. With the festive season around the corner, we thought we would round up a few of our favourite celeb hair looks that we think you should definitely try through this season!
The golden goddess herself rocked the no-part sleek hair look with panache. To get this look, make sure you blow dry your hair straight and then iron it if needed for that poker straight look. After that, divide your hair into 2 horizontal sections - the top half and bottom half, and set the lower section straight down your back with hairspray. For the top section, divide it into smaller sections and tease the roots while setting them to the back. Finish with a shine spray or gel.
Alia’s subtle yet chic hairdo is perfect for the next wedding function you attend. This is a fairly easy look to achieve. Just brush all of your hair back smoothly and tie a ponytail at mid-height. Make sure you spray your crown and hair around the ponytail with a strong hold hairspray to rid them of flyaways. Now take the ponytail and wrap it around itself to create a knot and secure with bobby pins.

Sleek doesn’t always mean straight. Try this hairstyle with beachy waves to give your sleek hair a little bit of an understated vibe. With a half-inch curling iron, curl your hair into tight curls. Be sure to leave a 3-inch section on either side of your part. Once you are done curling the rest of your hair, brush through the curls to loosen them up. Flat iron the front sections and secure them behind your ears with bobby pins.

Aditi here shows you how to do an understated sleek and low ponytail, without it being too poker straight. This hairstyle would be ideal if you have greasy roots or 3rd-day hair and wouldn’t even need too much styling. Just part your hair in the middle and brush through it thoroughly. Gather all your hair at the nape, leaving the parting intact and secure with a hair elastic. Tame flyaways with a mild hairspray and you’re done!
Prachi’s low bun is the ideal look that you can go for with your Indian ensembles. Divide your hair into 2 sections, the first section should be at your crown of about 3 inches and the rest of your hair should be the second section. Take the second section first and tease the crown to give it a slight pouf. Gather all the hair and tie it into a low bun. Divide the first section in a middle part and pull it back into the bun. Embellish the bun with hair accessories or flowers.

This is the most effortlessly chic way you can wear your sleek hair. Start with straight hair and part the hair in the middle. Take 2-inch sections in the front, flatten it and pin it behind your ears. Finally, smooth down your entire mane with a mild hairspray.

Esha’s sleek top knot is definitely something that you should be looking at trying. It is super simple and gives your look such a chic vibe. Just gather all of your hair into a high ponytail at the top of your head. Then wrap the ponytail around itself in a knot and secure with bobby pins. Finally, spray your hair with hairspray to tame flyaways. Alternatively, instead of a top knot, you could also try a sock/donut bun for a ballerina vibe.
