Hollywood A-listers have been rocking the not-yet-dry look with such panache that it’s not even funny! From Kim K. to Gigi Hadid, celebrities are setting red carpets on fire with the wet hair look. Believe it or not, mastering the all-day-long wet hairstyle isn’t a ten-step routine requiring multiple layers of gooey gel. All you need is a bunch of products and ten minutes! Buh-bye unwashed lengths and dry shampoos; we’re switching over to wet hair that stays that way all day.
First off, consider yourself lucky if you wake up with greasy locks on a lazy Monday morning; the wet hair look is best obtained on unwashed hair! Begin by spritzing a bottle of water on your locks. However, remember the mantra – Damp, Not Dripping!
Now if you aren’t blessed with a poker-straight mane, bring out your friendly straightener right away. The Corioliss Pro-V Jet Black Hair Straightener will come straight to the rescue!
The trickiest part of using a hair gel or wax is that you can’t afford to go overboard. Time to play smart! Mix equal quantities of The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil and L'oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil. Finger-comb it through your strands. This concoction is the secret behind the wet-not-greasy texture. Now you know!
Concentrate primarily on the crown area. If it ends up looking too flat, consider backcombing for added volume. The Bronson Professional Termax Back Combing Teasing Brush is perfect for this.
Let Pantene Open Hair Miracle take care of the finishing touches for those beautiful tresses. And those pesky flyaways, of course!
