Last night was the finals for the Blog Awards in which 3 of the bloggers from the blog platform I´M NEXT were nominated.
The whole gang were at YOU last night for a few hours and we did hair, Make-up, hung out and listened to some seriously loud music! I´m gonna show you a lot more later…BUT…in the meantime. I saw that Caroline Roxy had put up this blog of the look I did for her last night so I asked her if it was cool for me to share them with you since we looked at the wet look in a recent post.
Well…she said HELL YEAH!
Thanks Caroline…and …congrats on winning “Newcomer Fashion Blogger 2013″……YOU ROCK!
I´ll show you guys more from the evening later…it was cool
oh…here is what products I used for Caroline´s look…I Poured this Gel into a bowl and brushed it into the roots and mid lengths then I combed through with a large rake comb. (If the gel starts to dry too fast don´t panic…just spray on a little water) Then I dried it in with soft heat and finished with this Spray.
The Wet Look…it´s one of the hot styling trends that we see at the moment…featured here on this AWESOME cover series by Interview Magazine.
Prada, Balmain and Mani all used this look on the catwalk this season. We also saw it quite widely used at Stockholm fashion week.
While easy to acheive naturally with help of the Swedish Autumn weather ;)… there are a couple of products that can help you achieve The Wet Look at home.
A little tip is to also try totally drying your hair and then using the products below to make the sides, top or both look wet while leaving the mid lengths and ends dry. Or…just go for the total wet look..it´s got loads of attitude, is different and is the all important…sexy;)
Here´s my tips for products combined or alone to help you get the look:
For a wet but hard finish try using a good non-flakey mousse like the luxurious Shu Uemura , Ample Agora applied to wet hair and left to dry naturally.
or…I even found a couple of cool little kits by Percy and Reed which gives you a great selection of products that can be mixed. You achieve a softer feeling wet look with the Mini Moisture Pack or a firmer hold with the Mini Volume Pack use in wet and/or dry hair. They are great value from this funky and cool British Brand.
You can also try a Serum like Young Again by Kevin Murphy mixed with a Gel like Redken`s Acrylic Shape 15 (I actually used this combo for Noomi Rapace when I did her hair for Fashion Week)
Hey…the more styles you know the more fun you can have with your hair!
The Wet Look….Cool…for the right occasion…not for everybody…but…maybe for YOU;)
