The Wet Look For Long Hair: Diving Into This Hairstyle Trend!

For a long time, the proud owners of voluminous hair have been told that the only way to stay on trend was to blow-dry. Now with the wet-look, you can make a splash, looking like you've just stepped out of the ocean.

A look to jump right into

Despite being on the fashion and beauty scene for a few seasons, the wet-look has been known to scare some women off. Which is not a bad thing! A little bit of wariness ensures that too much gel, or some of the other traps this look may hold, can be avoided. Far more sophisticated than it first seems, particularly on long hair, it's a style that you really need to own.

A bad-hair day lifesaver

Delphine Courteille, hairstylist for L'Oréal Professionnel, assures that getting the wet-look right can start with clean or unwashed hair. It's a look to stylishly save you from a bad hair day, so you don't have to reach for your shampoo or, worse, a hat!

The key: just a touch of gel

One of the dangers of the wet-look is getting a little too 'wet', with locks that look like they've been greased back or dripping with sweat. To avoid the soggy look, ask an expert, who will advise the exact amount of product to use and how to apply it, so you keep your volume and balance it with sleekness.
