It may seem daunt­ing, but nail the wet hair look and you’ll achieve the ul­ti­mate in night­time chic

If you’ve been pay­ing at­ten­tion re­cently, you would have no­ticed that al­most every other celebrity red car­pet out­fit this sea­son was paired with a slicked, wet hair look. Gigi Ha­did in par­tic­u­lar sported the I-just-got-out-of-the-pool look so of­ten, we be­gan to won­der if her pre-party prep was in fact sub­aquatic. Ad­mit­tedly, the style is a lit­tle in­tim­i­dat­ing for us mere mor­tals to at­tempt; but done right it can add a bad girl edge to the frilli­est of dresses and a mag­netic in­sou­ciance to a black tie gown. As a look, its beauty lies in its con­fi­dent de­fi­ance of so­ci­etal norms; in the way it says “my face is good enough to pull this off, and I know it.” So in­vest in some qual­ity styling prod­ucts and a good comb, and start lay­er­ing on that prod­uct. A slicked-back pony­tail is a gen­tler start­ing point—but pull out a strand or two for an up-to-date twist.
