On the hunt for a new way to style your hair this season? Look no further! The runways of Paris Fashion Week gave us all the wet look hairstyle inspiration we'll need this year and next.
The wet effect hit runways last year and it wasn't long until this simple, striking look appeared on the red carpet... but is it actually wearable? For many, wet look is less "just stepped out of the shower" than it is "it's been days since I even looked at a shower" as the hair can almost look greasy. But let's not mix apples and oranges: the wet look is a timeless, sexy, and stylish hairstyle!
At Fashion Week, designers and stylists have done their best to popularize the trend, from Miu Miu to Acne Studios, Giabmattista Valli to Dries Van Noten and even Paco Rabanne. So, want to try it? Here are our top tips...
Wet look can be worn on all hair lengths: it's as flirty and fashion-forward on short hair as it is on long hair. And we can see from the photos of Fashion Week that is also suits any hair texture or face shape, proving its versatility once again!
In summer, this look will be your best ally. It's chic, easy to achieve, and the gel will provide a barrier between your precious locks and the chlorine, UV rays, sand, and salt that are simply unavoidable!
To get the look: Brush through your hair to remove any tangles, then smooth hair oil or gel between your palms. Run the product through your roots, and then either let the hair settle for a messy effect, or comb through it again for a super sleek look.
