How to Achieve the Wet Look

Hey there, my seesters! Today, we’re delving into the realm of sleek, wet hairstyles, exploring how to rock that chic, glossy look even on the dryest of days. So, buckle up and get ready for some hair magic!

Step 1: Prep The Hair

  • Start on slightly damp hair, as opposed to freshly washed hair, to allow for better product absorption.
  • Consider using a deep conditioner to hydrate and moisturize the hair, promoting smoother, more manageable curls.
  • Apply a moisturizing product, such as the EVA NYC 10 in 1 Magic Shine Mask, to enhance hydration and elasticity.

Step 2: Towel Drying and Sectioning

  • Towel dry the hair gently to remove excess moisture, ensuring it is still damp but not dripping wet.
  • Section the hair using clips or hair ties to facilitate easier styling and ensure even product distribution.

Step 3: Apply Products

Step 4: Styling Techniques

  • Part the hair according to preference, ensuring the gel is evenly distributed throughout each section.
  • Use clips or pins to secure any sections of hair that you wish to keep separate or create volume.
  • Utilize techniques such as finger coiling or twisting to encourage curl formation and enhance the overall texture of the hair.

Step 5: Drying the Hair

  • Use a diffuser attachment on a blow dryer to dry the hair, focusing on low heat and airflow settings to minimize frizz and maintain definition.
  • Avoid touching or disturbing the hair while drying to preserve the gel cast and prevent disruption of the style.
  • Consider using a scarf or bonnet to protect the hair overnight and maintain the wet look until the next day.

Step 6: Day Two Refresh

  • On the second day, refresh the style by applying a small amount of serum or hair oil to add shine and moisture to the hair.
  • Use a wide-tooth comb or fingers to gently fluff out the curls and redefine the shape of the hairstyle.
  • Incorporate accessories such as headbands or scarves to add flair and versatility to the look.

Step 7: Day Three Maintenance

  • On the third day, assess the hair’s condition and consider shampooing if necessary to maintain scalp health.
  • Refresh the style as needed with additional product application and styling techniques to revive the wet look.
  • Experiment with different accessories and styling options to prolong the longevity of the hairstyle while expressing personal style.

By following these steps and utilizing the recommended products and techniques, you can achieve a stunning wet look hairstyle that exudes confidence and sophistication.
