Not only is wet look hair on-trend this season, it also happens to be the easiest way to look chic on the beach.
If you have scary images of Backstreet Boys circa 1996, worry not. The updated version of wet look hair involves new formulas and soft, manageable locks. No nasty spikes in sight, promise.
The trick is to mix wet look gel with leave-in conditioner. This will ensure that the hair will not dry hard (and will acts as a treatment too!) If you have very dry or damaged hair, you could switch the leave-in conditioner for a mask for an extra-intense treatment.
You can either scrape the hair back and wear loose, or you can run a few drops of hair oil through the ends and twist up into an easy bun.
