The fascination of the wet hair look: the best styling tips and products...
Hair trend prospects say shiny rain showers - beautiful hair with a wet look is the trend in 2022.
Who cares about my hairstyling? The wet hair look pays homage to rainy weather, but at the same time bears witness to a long night of partying or – very seductively – makes you look like you’ve just had a shower! The styling with seemingly wet hair is therefore diverse and goes well with both the blazer and the summer top. The main thing is the self-confident attitude of the wearer:
Wet hair, don't care!
The wet hair look is styled slick in 2022. As if we had stepped straight out of a swimming pool, slipped into the floor-length silk dress, and are now on our way to a cocktail party. The effect of the styling: sophisticated! The slick effect is used to make the hair look stylish. Slick is the over-the-top sleek. The hair is not only smooth but dripping wet! The hair expert Guido Palau once created the perfection of such a wet hair look with extreme slick appeal for Givenchy: "A kind of futuristic helmet" is this hairstyle. The grandiose styling motto could not be simpler. Hairstyling is particularly suitable for the evening.
Wet hair with curls? A good idea. The styling for the hairstyle can be staged in a way that is rich in contrast. The top hair is styled extremely smooth and is only treated with gel at certain points towards the tips. The effect: fitness meets disco! Wet hair curls conjure up freshness in any style in a very uncomplicated way and take the austerity out of many a red carpet outfit.
Wet hair gel looks for the day: If you want to wear the wet hair look during the day, you can de-dramatize it a bit and only emphasize the side hair with gel and leave out the tips. Janina Ehrenberg from Wella recommends styling the hairstyle: "The wet effect on the top of the head is a popular styling. The hair is wetted with a wet gel such as the "Eimi Pearl Styler" or a spray on the front of the head. The lengths and tips remain dry and are either smooth or wavy." A coarse comb is used here, which distributes the gel in a well-dosed manner.
Brush the hair upside down and fluff up the hair with spray. The effect is like a cushion under the gel layer and prevents the hair from looking flat on the scalp and untidy. Again, the best hairbrush for styling with gel is a wide comb. He distributes the gel evenly. Hair clips also fix and optically ensure order. To get the gel out of the hair again: Rinse the hair with water before the hair is shampooed. This prevents the hair from sticking together unnecessarily.
