There you are during the holidays – visiting with relatives you haven’t seen in days, months or more. Sure your everyday hairstyle is great. But why not elevate your look for the holidays and treat yourself to a sleeker style beyond your usual fishtail braid or bun.
Modern Salon® recently wrote about “dressy wet-look” hair, and we think it’s just perfect for any holiday event – dinners and dances included. The wet look is no stranger to both the red carpet and runway. It’s often celebrated for its ease of execution as well as its nod to classic Hollywood glamour.
It’s simple to achieve the style. Gel the top part of the hair and comb back. Then follow your fancy; the options are endless. If the remaining hair is short, simply slick it and tuck it behind the ears. If it’s longer, braid it, pull it into a low chignon or even leave it natural and long. The look can be worn with a side, middle or even no part, where the hair is gelled and combed straight back.
For a less severe version, don’t be afraid to run your hands through the gel at the crown of the head to loosen the strands.
The style evokes the feeling of futurism and confidence fully opening the face. It has been worn on celebs like Rita Ora and has been popular in runway shows this fall worn by models for Kenneth Cole® and Gucci® among others.
Individualism is the staple of great fashion and hair, but it’s impossible not to jump on the band wagon of a trend so stylish and modern.
Bonus points for the ample gel included in the style, sure to withstand encounters with young nieces, nephews and cousins who have a tendency to grab loose hair.
