Rita Ora isn't shy in switching up her look. Last month the Masked Singer judge looked unrecognisable after she chopped off her waist-length locks before debuting a chin-grazing caramel bob and now, she's fully embracing her new 'do. 

Sporting an androgynous undone, crisp white shirt and smart tailored trousers, the 33-year-old showcased how she's wearing her new cropped cut to her 16.1 million Instagram followers while she enjoyed a weekend in New York.

In the short clip, Rita showed how she applied conditioner to her hair, saturating from root to tip before slicking it back into place. A genius way of getting some intense hydration into your hair - kudos Rita.

Talking to fans and running her fingers through her hair, Rita explained, "I've just slicked my hair back, I've just literally put in some conditioner really and a bit of hairspray."

While we were admiring the singer's versatility and love of changing up her style, we couldn't help but notice a new hair trend starting to form as wearing her hair in a very, very similar style over the weekend was actress Sydney Sweeney. Could this be the start of the slick-back bob spring trend? We think so.

Attending the premier of her new horror film Immaculate, the Euphoria star ditched her trademark old-Hollywood blowout for a more androgynous look by slicking her hair back and allowing a cute kiss curl to fall over one eye. The actress, like Rita, also teamed the look with a monochrome outfit.

Want to try this memorable, Elvis-esque look? It's easy to achieve and takes a fraction of a second but while wet-look gel might be the product you automatically reach for, it can turn the hair crispy so take a leaf out of Rita's book and opt for conditioner. It will keep the hair soft and supple.
