Wet Hair Effect: The Summer Look

A couple of weeks ago I posted on my Instagram a picture with a new look and many friends asked me for advice to archive the wet hair look …

So, I immediately thought of making a blog post about it:

 

WET EFFECT FOR SHORT HAIR

If you have short hair, the wet effect is a great idea for a change of look (or to handle an indomitable head of hair).

Pulled back or side part, smoothed or (falsely) messy: it is your choice!

 

WET EFFECT FOR LONG HAIR

On spring-summer catwalks it is practically an evergreen.

With long hair, style is far grittier: you better choose a natural makeup.

From catwalks to red carpets, celebrities draw inspiration for a super sexy and vaguely 80s look.

 

WET EFFECT FOR CURLED UP HAIR

Hair gel, if well used, is great for perfecting any hairstyle. Especially if the hair is rebellious and frizzy.

Obviously, the chignon can also be artificial, why not? 😏

 

WET EFFECT WITH TAIL

First create the front style: parted, with tuft or combed backwards.

Then proceed with the tail or the braid. You will not have any hair out of place …

 

VINTAGE STYLE

Do you know the Hollywood-diva look?

The hair gel is a great ally to reproduce that “plastic” and ultrafeminine effect.

 

 

ANDROGYNOUS STYLE

I have often told you about my passion for the androgynous style.

To complete the look, you can take inspiration from the masculine beauty look and create the “brillantine” effect. I love it! 😍

Kristen Stewart is th queen of this style: androgynous, chameleonic and always irresistible …

 

FACE SHAPES

Of course, pulled back hair is not easy to wear and does not enhance all faces.

To make an oval face thinner, it is best to pull the hair on the sides of the face and leave more volume over your head.

 

THE SIDE LINE

The great classic remains the side part. Comb it very deep: it’s more sensual.

The wet effect is also an awesome escamotage to hide your bang from time to time. 😉

 

HOW TO CREATE THE WET EFFECT

Before you start, pull the hair back with a comb and part it in a clear and precise way.

Apply the gel gradually and distribute it homogeneously with your hands and a comb.

Do the last and definitive combs with the back of the comb and with your fingers, to give the hair a more natural wet effect.

If you prefer the shiny effect, especially with curled up hair, your better use hairspray.

 

I love this look: it’s my favourite for summer!

Try it yourself and then tell me … 😉
