Wet hair look is a red-carpet hit! Though it’s a risky move, celebrities don’t bat an eyelid before wearing this look, that too with so much panache. We’ve always been in awe of this edgy way of wearing your hair. Precisely why, we are here to give you a step-by-step tutorial on how you can wear the wet-hair look with aplomb.
The gorgeous Janhvi Kapoor was recently seen sporting the wet-hair look at the Hello! Hall of Fame Awards, 2019 and that’s what gave us the hair-spiration to show you how to ace the look yourself. Follow this step-by-step guide and you’ll be red-carpet ready in a jiffy...
Step 1: Start with damp hair
Just because it’s called the “wet” hair look does not mean your hair needs to be dripping wet. In fact, you can pull off this style only on damp hair. That’s because if your hair is wet, the hair gel you use in the following step won’t stick, and you won’t be able to sculpt your hair into perfection.
Step 2: Apply hair gel to the roots
It is important to pick the right hair gel, one that is non-sticky and leaves your hair looking shiny. We suggest you use the TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling to achieve the wet hair look as it promises to give your hair a pliable texture and hold. Now take a generous helping of the gel and work it through your locks, starting at your roots. Start with a dollop of hair gel but go ahead and add more so as to amp up your “wet” hair look. Remember that the more gel you add, the wetter your hair will look.
Step 3: Comb your hair back
To replicate Janhvi’s look, you’ll need to pull back all your hair. For this, consider opting for a fine-tooth comb. After applying the hair gel, take the comb and work it through your hair from root to tip. If you want a sculpted look, opt for a boar bristle brush. This brush will help smooth back your hair and at the same time evenly distribute the gel without creating any bumps.
Step 4: Set hair in place with a spray
Finish off any hairstyle with a hair spray. You can use the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray that’ll not just hold your look together but also, allow your tresses to enjoy long-lasting smoothness.
