How to make wet-look hair: the best techniques and products
The wet look hair or wet hair look they are extremely simple and quick to style, as long as you know which techniques are best suited to obtain a specific result.
Giulia De Lellis, for example, has opted for a very natural and rather voluminous look. This means that the hair was worked mainly near the roots to make sure they kept a rather controlled volume.
The hair lengths have been slightly dried, so that they remained more fluffy and discreetly wavy.
To achieve this effect it will be necessary work initially on wet but not dripping hair. The ideal will be to start styling them after having dabbed them very well with a towel.
After you have removed most of the water from your hair you will have to apply a small amount of wet look gel on the roots. At this point you will have to comb them carefully so that they take the desired shape.
To do this, you can use:
- a wide-toothed comb to create pretty soft waves
- a fine-toothed comb to create a much more composed and structured look
- fingers for a more natural effect.
At this point the hair must be dried with a hairdryer, because we must absolutely remember that it is only a wet “effect”, not to wear wet hair for the whole evening risking a disease!
For avoid puckering your hair two techniques can be adopted: the first, simpler, is that of use a diffuser by setting the hair dryer to moderate power; there second is that of use a hair net in order to completely prevent the hair from swelling.
Once the drying is finished you will have to spray a gloss hairspray over the entire length of the hair, taking particular care not to spray the product too close to the head to prevent residues from forming on the hair.
If, on the other hand, the goal is to create a sculpted and super flat effect the ideal product is the mousse, to be applied over the entire length of the hair and dry with the diffuser. To keep the roots as flat and structured as possible, the advice is to apply a small amount of gel on top of the mousse, comb and dry lightly with a blow of a hairdryer.
Also in the case of mousse, especially on the lengths, the use of one lacquer with a shine finish is essential to keep the hairstyle in perfect style for many hours.
