Slicked Back Hair Trend 2010-05-17 12:00:00

Trend Alert: Up and Away Hair

The pompadour may be making a comeback, but this voluminous style is not limited to just updo form. In fact, its close relative, a slicked-back pouffy coiffure, has also made lots of appearances on the red carpet as of late. Over the weekend at the Cannes Film Festival, Carey Mulligan styled her blond locks back into this up and away look as she snuggled up close to her boyfriend, while just a few weeks ago, Hayden Panettiere had heads turning after debuting this shorter, swept-away haircut. And let's not forget Kristen Stewart, who wore it punky-style at a screening for The Runaways. (For a similar look, check out this tutorial.) What say you on this take of the pompadour? Is it something you'd wear, or do you think it's best suited for the red carpet?

I hate it!It looks like they got out of the pool, and just slicked back their hair.

It is a good look when growing out shorter hair (with bangs at all).I personally believe that Hayden does look better with shorter hair since the longer hair did make her short neck look even shorter....

Carey looks cute! But I don't like Hayden or Kristen in these slick styles. (Bad pun, I know.) Personally I have a phobia of these crunchy kinda gels from having to wear them when I was little. (Dance preformances, ugh!)

I don't like it at all. Hayden is gorgeous, but this hairstyle (and her new hair color) have aged her 10 years.

this doesn't look good maybe on Carey, but the others, not so much Hayden should have never cut her hair...and Kristen, well don't even get me started on how gross her hair is
