5 Wet-look bun

Fashion Quarterly - - Beauty -

We’ve seen this be­fore too, but the lat­est ef­fect is even more drenched — think ‘fu­tur­is­tic hel­met head’ meets ‘day at the pool’. “This look is not for the faint of heart,” says Mana. “Make sure you’ve got am­ple time be­cause it’s not quick — but it’s def­i­nitely high im­pact.”

HERE’S HOW:

1. Start with slightly damp hair; sop­ping locks will take an eter­nity to air-dry into shape.

2. This look re­quires a prod­uct with strong hold and high shine. The boys of­ten have the best gels, so raid your part­ner’s groom­ing range, es­pe­cially if he uses Red­ken For Men Stand Tough Ex­treme Gel, $33, which is per­fect for the job. Work it through your hair from the roots to the ends.

3. Leave some hair free at the front, then smooth the re­main­der into a low pony­tail and se­cure it at the nape of your neck. Twist the pony­tail around it­self un­til it be­comes a bun, then fas­ten with bobby pins and al­low to air-dry.

4. Styling the cre­ative ‘fringe’ area is a mat­ter of tak­ing pieces of hair and strate­gi­cally comb­ing them into po­si­tion, then hold­ing them in place with a few clips or bobby pins. Air-dry or use a hairdryer with a dif­fuser at­tached to help dry the hair into shape.
