Stay Beautiful With Lrt—Wet Hair Is Bollywood’s Latest Hair Trend

Written by Fleur Xavier and Nethra RaghuramanSep 13, 2016
Bollywood stars have always worked on making statements with their hairstyles. Right from yesteryears actresses like Hema Malini and Sharmila Tagore (with their big hair dos), Saira Banu and Babita (with their blunt hair wigs), Dimple Kapadia and Madhuri Dixit (with their blow dried hair) to today’s young stars, the hairdos they sport in their movies become a rage with the masses.

Recently we have noticed a new hair trend which was also seen on the Fall/Winter runways of several international designers that has now become popular with the ladies of Bollywood. This is the wet look or slick back hair look.

How does it look? Sleek, smooth and pinned back at the top (or even tucked behind the ears) and left open at the bottom.

This is a great look especially for an evening out.

The wet hair look can also be done with a ponytail or a neat bun. We noticed Deepika Padukone, Aditi Rao Hydari, Waluscha DeSousa, and others opting for this look at the happening events of the year.

During the H&M launch party model Preeti Dhata looked chic with slicked back hair and minimal makeup. Alternatively try a bold lip (or smokey eyes, but not both together!) with this hairstyle.

This is a great trend for the winter months and was seen on runways such as Christian Dior, Kenzo, Hermes and Gucci.

If you are looking to pamper your hair while trying out this look, try combing in a deep conditioning mask and wearing it during the day. Couldn't be easier!
