What's done cannot be undone... Except the wet look!

The wet look is a catwalk favorite, not just because of its high shine and beachy vibe, but thanks to its re-workable, malleable nature. Try it for yourself IRL!

Why work the wet look?

Summer isn't *too* far away now, so why not give the world a tantalizing teaser of sun, sea, and sandy vacations with a flirty, summery hairstyle this spring? The added bonus about a wet look is that you don't need naturally sleek hair; a few curls actually add some enjoyable texture to the look. Plus, it's a go-to option if you're in-between washes and your hair is looking a little limp and/or greasy.

How to style the perfect wet look

After washing and blow-drying, take a nut-sized amount of Wet Domination Extreme Splash styling gel by Tecni.ART and rub between your palms. Then, working from the hairline to the back, run your hands through the hair to distribute the gel. Continue all the way down the lengths, twisting small 1 cm sections around your finger to create piecey faux-dreads/braids. Tie hair into a half-up ponytail and you're all set!

Change your mind? No sweat - all wet

You enjoyed your surfer girl look, but now want to try something different? No problem, you can restyle the look! Remove the half-up ponytail, and use your fingers to break up the twisted lengths and discover natural-looking voluminous waves with a textures, beachy gloss.

Add an element of surprise

The perfect accompaniment to a shiny, re-workable wet hair look? A pop of color! The new Color Addict Shimmer in dark or light silver adds a glistening glow to your wet look style. A shimmer of multi-hued color down the lengths gives you a totally unique look inspired by make-up trends, and personalized by your hair stylist so that no two looks are the same!
