Hair Trends : The Wet Look

So this hair style may have taken a little getting used to, but it’s a definitely grown on us, and many celebrities too! Whether it be LFW, the Oscars, the BAFTAs or the Grammys, this new style has been all over Instagram and the press.

The wet look pulls your hair away from the face, accentuating not only your facial features, but the volume of your hair too – and everyone loves a bit of lift! To help you achieve this celeb style, we’ve worked together with L’Oreal Professionnel to give you 5 easy steps, so you can walk the catwalk too!

Step 1. Wash your hair and dry before applying L’Oreal Professionnel Protective Smoothing Serum. It’s enriched with avocado oil and apricot kernel oil to keep it protected while you style!

Step 2. Dry your locks and straighten them with the iconic L’Oreal Professionnel Steampod, this is the perfect first step towards getting a strong, powerful wet look

Step 3. Separate the first third of your hair from the back and tie it in a bun to keep it separated. Then backcomb the back two-thirds of your hair to add volume and create the lift that you need for this look

Step 4. Release the front of your hair and brush it backwards. Use a strong-hold, wet look gel and comb it back carefully, keeping your hair close to the side of your face and tucked behind your ears.

Step 5. Make sure not to pull your hair too close to your scalp, be gentle to maintain the volume and lift you need for this catwalk must-have!
