Wavy, wet hair that looks like you've just wandered straight out of the ocean is undeniably sexy. And as a result, it's becoming one of the season's most prevalent hair trends. That being said, there's a time and place for everything, like wet hair on the beach, for example. But wet hair on the red carpet? That's a little more difficult to achieve.
But after watching Kim Kardashian and Ashley Graham parade effortlessly in front of the cameras in 'dos that were equal parts wet rat and bombshell at the 2016 MTV VMAs, we're wondering how this look can be achieved for a sophisticated evening out.
WET HAIR: HOW TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK
You may be thinking, why can't I just wet my hair to achieve the 'wet-looking' hair trend? The answer is, you can! But that's only one tiny step when creating a wet hair look that lasts. There are multiple products that need to be used to keep strands looking shiny and moist for the entire evening.

LEAVE-IN HAIR MASK
When beginning this look, the first thing you'll want to do is shampoo and condition your hair as usual. When you get out of the shower, simply towel dry your hair leaving it slightly damp. Next, you'll want to grab a leave-in hair mask, place it in your hands, then scrunch it into your hair. This will create that tousled, messy, wet look.
Next, you'll need a hair oil or serum to apply onto your fingers, then strand by strand, take your hair and wrap small pieces one at a time around your finger to create that wavy, separated look.
If you'd rather shop at home, use coconut oil to do this! It will give you a serious amount of moisture that will stay put.
Last but not least, you'll need a diffuser (if you're not familiar, a diffuser is that funky looking add-on that attaches to the front of most hair dryers, and helps with that semi-curled look) to run through your hair.
Simply run the diffuser as you scrunch your hair thoroughly once more (with oil for added texture) for those lazy Kim Kardashian waves.
