Iridescent, shiny curls with the effect of wet hair were at their peak in the eighties of the last century. Back then, disco-style parties, fashionable at that time, were not complete without hair with wet curls. In this article we’ll discuss how to create a wet hair effect?
Today, such hairstyles are still relevant, and it will not be difficult for any fashionista to make such styling on your own hair. So, how to make the effect of wet hair at home?
Wet Hair Effect Products
Additional cosmetics to create the effect of wet hair is indispensable. Therefore, you will have to stock up on all kinds of foams, styling varnishes and such a special tool as a textureizer (gel).
It is the textureizer that gives the strands a special shine, it is easy to apply and you don’t have to adjust anything with a hair dryer, as is the case with varnish and foam. But this is a professional tool and the textureizer is quite expensive.
All cosmetics for the effect of wet hair are divided into categories according to the degree of fixation.
If you have curly hair, then light hold products are the way to go. But for girls with straight hair, it is better to purchase varnishes from the category of medium and strong fixation.
Lovers of natural cosmetics can try products such as sugar and gelatin. One or the other is diluted in warm water, applied to the hair and given the desired shape to the hairstyle, after which you need to wait for the composition to dry.
Wet Hair Effect for Curls
Apply the product for creating the effect of wet hair to the hair (it is better just on separate strands that will differ) and shape the hair with a comb with rare teeth. You can decorate your hairstyle with an interesting hairpin, hoop or ribbons.
Wet Effect for Short Hair
The styling product should be applied not to the hair, but to the hands, then tousle the hair, smoothing the strands at the temples. You can also model “feathers” with your hands, and to fix the hairstyle several times, gather your hair into fists and squeeze it tightly for 2-3 seconds. A hairdryer is not useful in this case.
Wet Effect for Straight and Long Strands
For wet strands with beautiful curls, apply gel to your hands and curl small strands of hair into buns. Then fix the bundles for 30-40 minutes with elastic bands at the hair roots. After the time has passed, remove the elastic bands, shake (but do not comb) your hair, and then use the hair dryer to finish styling.
