A wet-look effect on long hair: take the big hairstyle plunge

The proud owners of voluminous hair have been insisting that, in order to stay top of the trends, we need to blow-dry our hair. At least, that's what it looks like. The wet-look is today's talk of the town, and we love it a little bit wild, as if we've just emerged from the ocean.

A look to jump right in to

Even though the wet-look has now been on the fashion and beauty scene for a few seasons, it still scares a lot of ladies off. And that's a good thing: this way, beauty faux pas by over-applying gel, or other traps this look is known for, can be avoided. The wet-look is far more sophisticated that it might seem, especially on long hair. It's a style that you need to own.

A life preserver for bad hair days

Delphine Courteille, hairstylist for L'Oréal Professionnel, assures us that, in order to create a wet-look, you can start with either clean or unwashed hair. It's a look that can save a bad hair day with style, so you don't have to reach for your shampoo or, worse, hat!

A delicate dose of gel is essential

From dripping locks to grease or sweat, sometimes there can be just a little too much 'wet' in a wet-look. To achieve a wet-look without it looking soggy, it's best to ask an expert who will know the exact amount of product to use, as well as how to apply it, without losing out on volume.
