If you were wavering as to whether wet look hair was a wearable trend then here is the proof. Behold Rachael Taylor.
My jaw dropped when I saw Rachael Taylor at the AACTA awards in Sydney on Tuesday night. She was interviewed on the news and I couldn’t believe how well she was wearing wet, shiny hair. I love her amazing custom Dion Lee dress. Credit where credit’s due – Rachael was styled by Trevor Stones, with make-up by Sarah Tammer and hair by Sophie Roberts.
I will have to add my caveat that this look is not for everyone, but what fun look suits everyone?
I think the trick to making this wet look hair work is to be deliberate, and to make the rest of your look clean and modern. Minimalism is key.
How to achieve wet look hair
Everyone has their own method but here are some tips from top stylists:
- Oribe uses Rock Hard Gel or Original Pomade to achieve sleek, wet-looking locks and says Gel Serum on dry hair will also do the trick.
- Guido Palau recommends Redken Shine Flash 02 and Argan-6 oil for wet look hair he created for the S/S12 runways.
- Smitten Hair loves Kevin Murphy Hair Resort finished with Session Spray for a slicked look.
