SLICKER PR ETTY

It might seem daunt­ing but nail the wet hair look and you'll achieve the ul­ti­mate in night-time chic, writes Chloe Street

Singapore Tatler - - BEAUTY -

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 sub-aquatic. Ad­mit­tedly, the style is a lit­tle more 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.
