Model Olivia Culpo is a big fan of the slicked-back hairdo. She frequently sports the look for both casual afternoon obligations and high-profile evening events. From New York Fashion Week to family vacations, the gelled-back up-do is certainly the 31-year-old’s go-to hairstyle of late.

While opinions regarding the best hair and beauty products are bound to differ, when it comes to a slicked-back look, we trust Culpo’s judgement regarding which product to use. In a “get ready with me” TikTok that the model shared on Sept. 27, she revealed the key to her trademark style.

She uses

Oribe’s Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream

($44.07) to achieve her characteristically smooth, shiny style. Culpo takes a handful of the product and smooths the hair around the crown of her head back before tying it up—in either a half-up look or a bun—with a hair tie.

With a cream texture and hydrating properties, this leave-in product de-frizzes, shines and softens hair.

Unlike others used to achieve slicked-back looks—which are often gel-based and make for coarse-feeling hair—Culpo’s pick makes her hair “shiny and not too sticky,” while moisturizing at the same time. Additionally, it successfully “holds everything in place,” according to the model, making for a good product for an afternoon or evening of activities.

Rather than picking up a typical gel product, try Culpo’s recommendation the next time you want to sport the in-vogue “wet hair” look.
