Get the Look: Helen Mirren's Slicked, Wet Bob

Get the Look: Helen Mirren's Slicked, Wet Bob(Art by Tanya Leigh Washington)Get that powerful wet look just like the ageless Helen Mirren. Follow Michelle Dittrich’s expert advice to copy the style without looking greasy or sticky.

Steps (starting with the top left image and working down)
1. Comb hair back while still damp and add L’Oreal Boost It High lift Creation Spray to roots.

2. Generously spray L'Oreal Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Strand-Smoother Serum Spray over the ends, until hair almost appears wet again (but pliable).

3. Give hair a quick shot with the blowdryer to maintain the general shape of hair. Do not dry too much or overspray—just a simple air blast to maintain direction. Smooth back hair.

4. Backcomb hair where volume is desired. In this style, you might want to create volume behind your earline and at the crown.

5. Apply low temperature and soft wind via a blow dryer to areas that need to maintain volume. Give a final mist with L'Oreal Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and smooth down ends behind ears. Once hair is all dry, be gentle not to over dry or over comb as crumble and deflation can be created.

6. You've got that “slicked-back look” plus a little volume sans wax or grease!
