1. Slick Wet Look:

Meet the cleanest and coolest bob the world has ever seen. Recording artist Rita’s loud swept back wet look frames her face beautifully, drawing one’s attention down past her eyes and bright lips.

To recreate this easy-peasy wet look hairstyle, begin by applying some strong gel to your hair and brush it back by using a wide-tooth comb. Voila! Such a simple hairstyle yet such a statement!

2. Barely Wet:

Hayden Panettiere proves just how slick a bob can look. The actress looks fabulous with her barely wet and slightly dirty hairstyle. Effortless but entirely doable, to duplicate Hayden’s perfectly-imperfect style, begin by blow drying your hair with a light mousse. Then sweep it back with a bristle brush for that slicked back look. Perfect for a night out, Hayden shows how short-haired girls can wear the look too – double thumps up!

American television sensation and fashionista, Kim Kardashian has us green with envy with her simple yet androgynous hairstyle. Paired with smoky eyes and a soft, glossy nude lip, the key to getting this look right is to start combing your hair back, with the help of a wide-comb tooth, while it’s still damp. Next spray lots of strong hairspray over it, way until it’s almost wet with spray – simply stunning!

4. Volumizing Wet Look:

American music sensation Jennifer Lopez shows how bold slicked-back hair doesn’t have to be perfect. An understated and super-flattering hairstyle on any face shape, JLo softens her deconstructed look with refined and subtle makeup and super-feminine nude lip. For sleek hair like Jennifer’s, invest in some anti-frizz serum, volumizing mousse and few bobby pins behind the ears to help hold it back.

5. Slicked Back:

One of our favourite looks from actress Megan Fox was this brushed-back, wet look that proved to be a style statement.

To copy this fresh and beachy hairstyle, start with damping your tresses. Then, roughly blow dry it. Next to hold it in place and give it a shine all over, mist with a super strength hairspray. Pair the look with red lip colour, and you will get a perfect hairstyle for black-tie social events.

Here’s an edgy style by singer Iggy Azalea that will work with hair of all lengths. To copy this blonde hairstyle, start by smoothing your hair back. Hold the top section of hair, and push it forward to create the pompadour. Mist a moisturizing hairspray and slide a pin behind to hold the hair in place.

7. Slicked Back Top:

Another strong argument for half-wet, half dry slicked-back, is the fact that actress Jennifer Lawrence looks fresh-faced and radiant in it. The multi-textured look of deconstructed hair is pretty and playful, and we love Jenni’s dull, two-toned hair colour. It’s a winning formula.

8. Half Wet, Half Dry:

Glee actress Lea Michele looks striking with her half wet, half dry hairstyle. The chic and unfussy hairstyle is our go-to look for easy, summer season. With just a little spray through the sides and a bit of teasing though the crown, the not-so-wet-ends give this type of style a more deliberate feel.

Actress Jessica Biel’s wet hair is all about precision. DIY this feminine look, comb all your hair into one tight point at the back of your head. Spritz all over with a volumizing spray for the hair shaft as it dries and makes hair look thicker. To get the wet look on top, slick the front section of hair with a firm-holding gel and blow-dry your hair just behind the ears.

10. Slicked Bun:

Actress and hottie Jessica Alba’s sleek updo is our favourite way to embrace the wet hairstyle trend. Just comb through mousse, and then with your head upright, blow dry with the help of a large round brush to keep the hair smooth and polished. Next add some grip to your hair with a good styling spray and tighten the updo with pins to give the look some real drama.
