“Reminiscent of last springs ‘Boy Bob’ this style is an androgynous and editorial look that is drenched in gloss and moisture and incredibly practical to achieve,” says Smith. The wet-look hairstyle is officially back for Spring, and Smith says that this one that suits everyone.
“The shape can be tailored to the individual, working with their features to create a length that sits between lips and the mid-neck and then the use of styling product to give definition and hold makes it a great haircut for those who like their hair to feel controlled and refined,” he says. “Tucked behind one or both ears this can be combined with spring’s popular side partings or single strands.”
The wet-look is a great option for evening when you want to make a statement, and another plus is that it’s so easy to achieve. Before you go rushing out to buy hair gel, Smith says that you recreate the look with hydrating hair products that you have already.
“While nourishing leave-in creams such as Olaplex No.6 Bond Smoother are ideal for the definition and hydration this style requires, a great trick for those who don’t find the time to do weekly masks or treatments is to simply style the hair with your favourite moisture mask,” he says. “This will give the semi-wet-look effect and allow your hair to soak in goodness at the same time.”
