Hair Trend Spotting Sleeked Back Styles

Recently, stars have been going for understated fierceness by sleeking their hair straight back and away from their hairline.

Emmy Rossum made her mark on the trend at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration with a tight, high, sleeked back pony that let her sexy red gown and bright lips take center stage. And Naya Rivera rocked the look at the same event, only slightly lowering the ponytail. Selena Gomez also recently went for the sleek, high ponytail.

Last week, Camilla Belle slicked back her chin-length bob into a super-sleek ‘do that beautifully complimented her romantic look, and Lea Michele followed suite last night by slicking her long tresses back and down.

At the 2013 Environmental Media Awards, Malin Akerman wore her hair back and tied into a large bun in the middle of her head, while Hayden Panetteire opted for a similar style, only fastening the length of her hair into a high topknot.

So how do you like the sleeked back style best: Down, fastened into a ponytail or fastened into a bun?
