What's done cannot be undone... Except the wet look!

The wet look is a catwalk favorite, not just because of its high shine and beachy vibe, but thanks to its re-workable, malleable nature. Try it for yourself IRL!

Why work the wet look?

We're missing summer already here in Oz, so why not give the world thrifty throwback to sun, sea and sandy vacations with a flirty summery hairstyle? The added bonus about a wet look is that you don't need naturally sleek hair; a few curls actually add some texture to the look. Plus, it's a go-to option if you're in-between washes and your hair is looking a little limp and/or greasy.

How to style the perfect wet look

After washing and blow-drying, take a nut-sized amount of the and rub between your palms. Then, working from the hairline to the back, run your hands through the hair to distribute the gel. Continue all the way down the lengths, twisting small 1cm sections around your finger to create piecey faux-dreads/braids. Tie hair into a half-up ponytail and finish with a healthy spritz of Shower Shine hairspray to really secure the wet look.

Change your mind? No sweat – all wet.

You enjoyed your surfer girl look, but now want to try something different? No problem, you can restyle the look! Remove the half-up ponytail, and use your fingers to break up the twisted lengths and discover natural-looking voluminous waves with a textured, beachy gloss.

Add an element of surprise

The perfect accompaniment to a shiny, re-workable wet hair look? A pop of colour! The Majirel Metals range can add a glistening glow to your wet look style. A shimmer of multi-hued metallic colour down the lengths gives you a totally unique look inspired by make-up trends, and personalised by your hair stylist so that no two looks are the same!
