How to style wet looking hair
Posted: Sunday, July 29, 2007 12:46:55 PM
Hi everyone. I have a photo shoot coming up and the photographer wants the model to have wet hair. I know you can't just use water for this effect, but I don't know what products or techniques to use to create it. If anyone could help I would appreciate it :)

There is the red line from Kerastace, a jelly that is used to cover the hair on the beach, that gives a wet look, but it won't "hold". Start with a gloppy, clear gel and brush well to set the foundation and finger style. If it's wavy or curly, make sure that the style is firmly set because it will weaken when you start to spray...

plain old water...

It is water because most products begin to dry. Select a very fine mist sprayer (the old fashioned kind used on plants designed not to disturb the leaves) and keep a painter's plastic dropcloth under the model, curbed with towels. You're only wetting the TOP and surface of the hair the camera can see, not especially underneath.
