Considering that a lot of us look towards the runway for inspiration, all you fashion savvy readers would have already tapped in into the wet-look trend. Nothing new? Well, it is not the first time that sleek, shiny and a damp-looking mane has caught our style scanner, but the ladies on the ramp and the celeb world is acing the look like never before.
As we tap trends of Paris, Milan, London (and await our own Delhi edition), the surfer-babe cum water baby cum rock n’ roll mermaid look has us bowled over! While the British Capital saw label Felder Felder do the straight from the beach wet-hair-don’t-care look, the rulers of the bandage dress, label Herve Leger, went for sleeker, pulled back hair, with a shiny, wet mane in New York. This season, even 3.1 Phillip Lim kept the hair wet, and went very very messy! Celebs like artist Rita Ora, Megan Fox, Jennifer Lawrence have also been since sporting the trend. If you are game, remember, it’s for the foxy and feisty woman in you, so leave the coy, brunch-ready lady at home when getting your hair wet!
What you can use
Last season, Prada aced wet hair using oil. An odourless oil works for the look, with random strands treated with the product.
Use a good quality hair gel to get the sleek front
Mousse and creams work when applied on damp hair
Keep that hair gel handy, but too much of it will make your hair stiff and stringy
