How to Style Wet Hair

The Keys to Styling Wet Hair After the Pool

Give your blow dryer a break, and let your hair air-dry after a day at the pool. Summer is all about carefree styling, so try the wet-hair trend for a night out. Discover the secrets to styling wet hair when you read more.

1. The Part: A severe middle or side part adds interest to any standard style (see the Anthony Vaccarello runway style at bottom right). For a side-swept look, create an L-shaped part (or a T shape for a middle part). This technique will make sure that every damp hair lays perfectly without matting or tangling.

2. The Product: Gel or mousse? It depends. If you're looking for a movable style that will flow once dry, then opt for mousse. The ponytail from the Tony Ward show (left) is sleek and shiny but still touchable. Gel will lend more staying power if you want the wet look to last all night. Don't have either product? Leave-in conditioner is a great substitute when styling wet strands.

3. The Pin-Up: Accessorize your wet look with encrusted or printed bobby pins like these from Urban Outfitters ($8). As seen on the Cacharel runway (top right), one is never enough. Place adornments near your part to keep shorter hairs in place or behind your ear for a formal feel. You can also choose a floral arrangement or scarf instead.
