Wet Hair Look Step-by-Step

Simple? Tick. Glam? Tick. So hot right now? Tick. With all this in mind, we’ve created a step-by-step to show you how easy you can create this wet, slicked back look at home. Below is our guide to give you a close up look on what to do.

Our Tip: Get hair extra smooth using a hair straightener which will help you style it into the slicked back look.

How to Create the Slicked Back Straight Wet Hair Look

1. Section hair and then straighten out any kinks using a straightener to achieve that super slicked, smooth finish.


2. Straighten each section out and back to create the slicked back shape to your style.


3. Repeat through the top section, ensuring you straighten hair while lifting it up and back to create volume through the front.


4. Use sea salt spray or gel to create the wet look. Spray into your hair and work it through your hair going from front to back with your fingers to style.


And that’s how simple it is to create the slick back straight wet hair look.


How Do I Get This Look?

Our gal used the VS Sassoon Digital Sensor Straightener to get this sophisticated sleek look. Do you know the ideal temperature to straighten your hair? This super smart straightener does, with a heat protect mode that adjusts the temperature according to the level of moisture in your hair. The guess work on temperature is gone and your hair is protected from heat damage.
