Hair Trend Report: Slicked-Back Strands(Source: Bryan Bedder/Getty Images North America) Normally, we try to avoid leaving the house looking like we just got out of the shower, but this celebrity hair trend might have us converted. The slicked-back, wet-hair look has been the go-to style for a number of famous faces recently. From shellacked short hair to precisely gelled updos, looking like your hair is still damp is slowly become one of the slickest looks of the summer.

Chrissy Teigen went for the slicked look and a deep center part.
