The wet look continues to dominate the runways, making this a must-try style in the new year. To complete, evenly distribute a shine enhancing styling gel like White Sands Gel-Us to the front using a comb to push hair back and create a ‘wet’ appearance. You can go bold or subtle with the slick look depending on how much product you use.

For a tighter wave like this, reach for BioSilk’s Titanium 3/4" Spring Curling Iron. The smaller barrel brings gives the waves a perm effect—without the perm. To style, spray a heat protectant like White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Styling Spray from roots to tips and brush through. This heat guard and setting spray will lock polished curls in until your next shampoo.
