How to Master the Wet Hair Look

By  December 14, 2010

We’re always in awe of girls who can step outside with wet hair that looks more sexy and sleek than slimy and sopping. (Allow actress Megan Fox and model-mogul Heidi Klum to help you visualize the girls we’re thinking of!) Lucky for us, backstage during Spring/Summer 2011 Paris Fashion Week, Redken’s Creative Consultant Guido Palau showed us how to pull off the ‘sexy & slick tresses trick’ with one little tube.

It’s Redken Hardwear 16 Super Strong Sculpting Gel (available at Redken salons for $13). For the easy, DIY looks created at Lanvin and Bottega Veneta, Guido says he constructed laissez-faire lacquered-up locks because he was inspired by a woman “rushing out of her apartment on her way to work—she’s on the go and letting her hair dry naturally.”

Sound like you? Should you be so inclined, create a glossy, wet-look finish in 1-minute flat. After you shampoo and condition, generously palm Hardwear 16 through your strands from root-to-tip, comb into desired style, and allow to air dry. The result? A perfectly molded style that’s shiny (not greasy!) and gently held in place (not rock hard!). Plus it can be easily washed out.

Could going for ‘fresh-out-of-the-water’ sexy be any easier?
