So, What Is the Wet Hair Look?
While the name is pretty self explanatory, it does have quite a wide variety of styles it can describe. The Wet Hair style is generally any hairstyle that makes use of hair gels, creams, or even just water (for a temporary style), to keeps hair looking wet. For some men, wet hair can look amazing and be an easily-achieved and versatile style. Retaining moisture in your hair makes it more malleable, formable, and easier to style in general. To maintain the wet look, you’ll definitely need to include some product in your routine. A hair gel or mousse, combined with a hairspray works best.
How Do I Achieve The Wet Hair Look?
You’ll want to start out your styling session with visibly damp hair (not soaking wet, and not dry). After you shower or wet your hair, leave enough moisture in your hair that you can still see that it’s damp. Once you’ve achieved that, start working a gel or mousse into your hair with your fingers. You’ll want to cover your fingers with a thin layer of it. At this point, you can begin shaping your hair the way that you’d like it to be styled – and pull out the hairspray. With your hair generally styled the way you’d like it to look, spray sections of your hair with the hairspray for 2-3 seconds each. Make sure you spray at least 12 inches away from your head and be careful to not get it into your eyes.
What Are Some Ways I Can Style My Hair With The Wet Look?

There are many choices here, so we’ve attached a few more pictures with some of the options.
