The coming of age of the wet look
We already warned you; the wet look is becoming the go-to look for any event or party worth its salt. What are the keys to the look? And what has it got that makes us love it so much? We reveal all below!
Although the Oscars (and the after parties) were some days ago now, they’re always a good place to start when spotting the latest trends in hairstyles, cuts and colors and finding out what we’re likely to see throughout the coming year. This year didn’t disappoint and the wet look was a clear winner. A myriad of wet-look styled manes paraded down the red carpet, all achieving a fresh and casually glamorous style.
If you like to wear the wet look just like a Hollywood star, then we suggest you check out our top picks as seen here below. So here we go!
The it girl choose to wear a stunning slick high ponytail with wet look finish. The trick to getting this look right is drying the wet hair off your face for added volume. Then take some Wet Gel + from the Pro·Line range and rub it between your fingertips then smooth onto the roots. Then take a comb and comb through the roots and to about half way through the hair. Lastly pull your hair up into a high ponytail. If you wish, you can hide the hair elastic with a lock of hair tied around the band. You’ll look amazing!
The actress is one of the latest to try out the short bob trend. How can you get such an elegant look from this haircut? Selma has given hers the wet-look and combed the central section back into a quiff.
If your hair is very fine, we recommend creating your wet look with Wet Gel Rock from our Pro·Line styling range, this gel offers extra-strong hold thanks to its synergistic resins, which make sure your style lasts ages, and it also contains energizing caffeine and antioxidants.
The model wore an incredible wet look with a vintage feel that suited her down to the ground. The gel was applied from root to mid-length, and worn with a side part and some added body at the roots around the forehead. The rest of the hair was worn loose with some beautiful old-Hollywood waves. Without a doubt one of the winning looks of the evening.
If you want your hairstyle to last all night then we recommend applying a little Nature Lac as a finishing touch. It’ll give your hair natural-looking sheen and won’t leave it sticky or stiff.
Just like Adriana Lima, the model went for a loose look. To get this look you’ll need a little Wet gel + on the roots to keep the strong side part in place and, at the same time create a super-slick and sophisticated look.
This actress always looks incredibly polished whenever she appears on the red carpet. She’s the perfect example of how a simple low bun can be worn with such style. The star has very fine hair, which is one of the reasons she always opts for simple and discreet hairstyles. In this case she wore a low bun with a center part and wet-look effect that made the look really pop. She was glowing!
A variation on the look worn by Kate Bosworth, was the look chosen by Nina Dobrev. In this case, the actress chose a more subtle wet look with the hair combed tightly back into a ballerina bun with a pronounced side part.
The singer and actress opted to leave her curly hair down to get a natural and shiny finish and we are totally enchanted with the results.
If you want to recreate her look you just need some Curl Mousse 04 from Pro·Line, the curly hair mousse with extra-strong hold. Apply to wet hair and shape to get curls full of body and definition.
