SLEEK AND CHIC: HOW TO WEAR WET-LOOK HAIR FOR WINTER

Trends Styling

We’ve had beachy wet look hair. Now, the sleek and sexy style is going elegant for autumn, with deep side parts giving the usually-tousled ‘do a polished feel. And, the trend has arrived just in time: while Margot Robbie and Selena Gomez are wearing it on the red carpet, we’re gearing up for party season with ultra-glossy locks.

Autumn/winter’s wet look is less stepped-out-of-the-ocean and more about adding slick, subtle shine - best paired with a matte red lipstick and this season’s oversized earrings.

To create this look, start with wet hair and comb it into an exaggerated side parting. Keep the part super-neat and straight by tidying it up with a pin-tail comb. Then, with a large-toothed comb, tame the rest of the hair into a sleeker shape, and use the palm of your hand to smooth out any unwanted teeth marks.

Set the look with a few spritzes of our gloss-boosting Wella Professionals EIMI Glam Mist, then sweep EIMI Just Brilliant Shine Pomade through the lengths, before gently combing hair back into place.

Wet-Look Hair Trend

Switch a hairdryer onto a slow, cool setting to gently dry in place, or leave locks to air dry with clips in place to ensure the parting doesn’t move. Top tip: placing some tissue between the clips and the hair will prevent any dents from forming. Simply remove the tissue and clip once hair is dry.

High-shine hair doesn’t have to be a fleeting style, though. If you love the gloss it gives, you can book in for a Wella Professionals Illumina Color Glossing Service to boast a healthy sheen for longer. The perfect pre-party season treatment, this in-salon service will also refresh your color. Use our Salon Finder to track down your nearest salon, and get booking…
