Want to try out a new style? Wet look hairstyles have been hot on the fashion runways over the past 12 months or so and the popularity of this style shows no signs of slowing down just yet.

The great thing about the wet look style is despite the cool, contemporary look it is quite easy to achieve and very easy to maintain – plus there are some added benefits of wearing this style in the summer months.

Styling this look on a hot summers day can be a breeze. The look doesn't require you to wash your hair as often (you can get away with washing every 3rd or 4th day) plus if you have long hair the 20 minutes needed to blow dry you locks under hot heat (not ideal for warm days in August) is also unnecessary. If your hair is slightly on the greasy side this look will naturally work well for you.



Generally the key to styling wet hair is keeping things simple as the wet look adds enough interest on its own without an intricate style. Keeping hair away from and off the face is also important.

A loose, messy bun is one style that can achieve both these key styling elements and enhance the wet look. To create this style start with wet hair and apply a styling product such as Alfaparf S4U Ocean Texturizing Spray that can help you achieve the beach or Surfer look with natural movement, and tousled locks.

A popular look on the runways is a wet look with slighter dryer ends that form into loose waves.  To get the best from this look you will need a firm hold styling product to keep the hair away from your face. A product such as American Crew d:fi d:extreme which is used for strong hold, texture, definition and shine on dry or wet hair is ideal.
