Next, use a product that should help you maintain the look such as a curl cream, apply it in your hair starting from the roots till the end of your hair. Apply a generous amount as the more product you use the wetter your hair will look.

Then use some hair clips that will keep the roots of your hair flat so that you can maintain the flatness that comes with wet hair. Once this is done, use a volume and matte hairspray to add volume and texture to the rest of your hair.

Be sure to apply it evenly throughout your hair by lifting it in sections and spraying your hair from the roots to the ends. After this use a regular hairspray applying it in the same areas as before for some extra hold that won’t compromise the wet look.

Finally, leave the clips in your hair for 10-15 more minutes before removing them from your hair. Vóila, you should have a chic wet look!
