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.
