…It’s Officially A Thing

It’s late summer, so this coif trend doesn’t really surprise us. After all, when it comes to mane moves for warm-weather days the easier the better always gets our vote—and that includes the wet-look hair trend! But there is more to crafting the effect of saturated strands than just stepping out of the shower and going with it. You do have to make a bit of an effort. Create that glossy, “wet look” by priming mane with glossing pomade, a light hair wax or conditioning, leave-in hair lotion. A little tousling kicks up casual waves and you’re good to go. Check out how these celebrity sisters are rocking the look…
