Red Carpet-Approved: 4 Easy Steps To The Wet-Hair Look
, red carpet
The latest wet-hair looks have evolved to feature sleek updos and styles highlighting your hair's natural texture. The wet-hair look in 2024 is also influenced by the ‘mermaid core’ trend, making soft waves and curls the norm instead of the crunchy and stiff feel.

The wet-hair look lends a sultry appeal with its ‘just out of shower’ appearance. It is also great for curly-haired girls who love their wet hair but hate that it loses its definition when dry. If you, too, wish to recreate the glossy wet hairstyle seen on celebs, read this guide, which breaks down the process into four easy steps and must-have products to master the look.

What Is The Wet-Hair Look

Wet hair just out of the shower or right after coming out of the pool has a natural shine and texture that adds a sultry appeal. The wet-hair look resembles that and highlights the root-to-tip wet aesthetic, just like Kylie Jenner and many other celebs who have tried this hairstyle. Let’s dive into how you can achieve this wet hair aesthetic, the products you need, and celeb-inspired looks you can recreate for the weekend.

Step 1: Make The Hair Damp

To get the look, you need to start with wet hair—but not too much! If you're starting with dry hair, use a spray bottle like the bestselling option from Bronson. It is refillable and allows a continuous flow of ultra-fine mist, perfect for many hairstyles. If your hair is dripping wet after a shower, use a gentle hair dryer like the top-rated Philips HP, which protects your hair from overheating. Ensure your hair is evenly damp and there is no excess water left.

Step 2: Apply Products

You can pick from a hair gel, mousse, or serum for the glossy look and hold. The right product for you will depend on the level of hold you want and the hair volume. While serums will simply add shine, a mousse will provide minimal hold, and gels will lock in the style. We recommend the Arata hair gel, which provides a medium-to-strong hold for 12 hours, or the Wella Professionals mousse, which profiles a volumizing solid hold. When ready to apply, start small in sections and use the product from root to tip. Start with small amounts and take more to get the desired look.

Step 3: Start Styling

Once you’ve ensured even the product application, it’s time to start the fun styling process. If you want a sleek look, comb back your hair with a comb or a multi-use tool like the Majestique Tail Comb, which is heat resistant for styling, has a fine tooth for teasing, and can be used to part the hair into sections. For curly hair girls, we recommend the Alan Truman DT-01 Detangling Brush, which is gentle on the hair and maintains the texture of your hair. While you can simply use the finger-coiling method for a more defined curl pattern, a brush will disperse the products evenly and lock them all in.

Step 4: The Finishing Touch

We must begin this step with a fair warning to avoid overdoing it. While hair sprays enhance the wet-hair look and out-of-this-world shine, start with light mists over your hair to prevent the excessively crunchy texture. Try the BBLUNT Hotshot Hold Spray, which provides an instant firm and hold for party-ready hairstyles, or the TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece hair spray that adds an extra strong hold and glossy finish.
