Step 1 To Recreate The Wet Hair Look: Dampen Your Hair
So it’s the “wet hair” look, you should start off with soaking wet hair, right? No. Actually, if you start with your hair straight outta the shower or after a quick rinse, it won’t work. Plus, starting any styling process with soaking wet hair is really bad for your hair and we have an entire post about bad hair habits to roast that. The reason for this is because when your hair is dripping wet, the hair gel you use in the following step won’t stick. And if the gel won’t stick then your hair can’t be sculpted into perfection.
This hairstyle actually best starts with damp hair. There are many ways you can dampen your hair. You can wash your hair about half an hour prior to when you decided to do the look and wait for your hair to dry off, or you can take a spray bottle filled with water and give your hair a few spritzes. Run your fingers through your hair to make sure every part is dampened evenly.
Step 2 To Recreate The Wet Hair Look: Get Your Hair Gel Ready
So you’ve done getting your hair damp, time to move on to the next step, which is to have a good hair gel. Yes, this is essential. You cannot skip this if you want to recreate this hairstyle, it’s what gives the look its wetness! But we totally understand if you don’t want your hair to feel greasy and sticky all day though, especially if you have an oily scalp.
That’s why you shouldn’t just pick any hair gel. Pick a good hair gel that is non-sticky and high shine. The stronghold hair gel will keep hair in place, even defying gravity, all day (or night) long. Get your hair gel ready before you start any of this.
Step 3 To Recreate The Wet Hair Look: Apply The Hair Gel To Your Roots
Enough for the preparations, now it’s time for the main course. If you want the perfect wet hair look, then don’t skimp out on the hair gel. Just applying a tiny itsy bitsy amount of hair gel isn’t gonna work. You want a quite decent amount of the hair gel for this look to be truly the wet hair look. Go a little crazy with it, if you will, but don’t overdo it if you don’t want your hair to feel overly heavy later on.
Take a generous helping of hair gel and work it through your locks, starting at your roots. Start with a dollop of hair gel, and gradually add more if you feel that you need to really amp up your “wet” look. In this way, you won’t overuse your hair styling products and risk damaging your hair. Feel it out to see what you like the best, but keep this in mind: Essentially, the more gel you add, the wetter your hair will look.
Step 4 To Recreate The Wet Hair Look: Brush Your Hair Back
Now it’s time for preferences. If you want an ultra-smooth, slicked-back look then bust out your fine-tooth comb. If you want something more tousled and sexy, then use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers. For an even more sculpted look, you can also use a boar bristle brush. The world’s your oyster, play around and have fun!
Once you’ve applied a generous amount of hair gel, take the comb and work it through your hair from root to tip. The hair gel and the comb will shape your hair into the wet locks that you saw after a shower, and keep them there. Depending on what brush you used, the end result will be different. The more fine the comb is, the more put together the look will be. For instance, if you choose a boar bristle brush, the soft bristles on a boar bristle brush can help smooth back your hair and evenly distribute the hair gel without creating any bumps.
Step 5 To Recreate The Wet Hair Look: Add On A Touch Of Glossing Spray
So now we have shaped the hair into the shape that we want, time for a nice glossy finish. You can’t really apply the hair gel to the rest of your hair, as it can make your hair look quite… lifeless to be honest. But, you still need a little bit of shine to make everything blend together perfectly.
Using a glossing spray can help. Hold the bottle 6-8 inches away from your hair and spray it evenly throughout your lengths, avoiding the roots. By doing this you will give your hair the ultimate wet look that is shiny and beautiful just like a siren under the sea.
Step 6 To Recreate The Wet Hair Look: Finished It Off With Hairspray
And last but not least, to make the magic last all day, all you have to do is use some good old hairspray to secure every bit and strand. Using a hair spray at the end of the process can help to hold everything together. Pick a shine-enhancing hair spray, and spray it all over your mane. By doing this you will lessen the chance that you have to run for the bathroom to do some touch-ups and miss the fun.
Make sure to use the hair spray before the hair gel has dried. Take the can of hairspray and spritz some onto your wet hairdo from about 10-12 inches away from your head. You can use your hair dryer to blow dry the hairspray a little bit after that so it can set up and keep your hair in check all day. Just make sure you won’t fry your hair, as dry hair can cause a myriad of problems later on.
