‘Wet look’ and crimping are hair trends to try (yes, really)
May 17, 2019
When was the last time you crimped your hair? Maybe it was at Sally’s sleepover birthday party in grade six where you also confessed, and regretted doing so, to your crush on the coolest boy in your class?
Yes, it was probably then.
But now it’s time to try it again and, this time around – with your subtly crimped hair as on display at the Bec & Bridge and Karla Spetic shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – you’re going to tell that boy to his face that you like him.
The trick to crimping the second time around is not going overboard. At Bec & Bridge the look was a beachy vibe to complement the collection’s California in the ’70s “Wipe Out” theme.
Redken hair director Richard Kavanagh, who created the look, described it as having a “very natural, slightly androgynous feel with a lived-in textured wave through the mid lengths … almost as if the girl has naturally curly hair and has been wearing a cap to try and control it”.
After drying off your hair, use a crimper in the mid-lengths of your hair and then finish with a texture spray and use your fingers to tousle it through and add movement.
Meanwhile, over at Tigerlily Goldwell guest artist John Pulitano, creative director and co-founder
of Headcase Hair, created a very cool “wet look” complete with hair clips (as we’ve said before: definitely appropriate for grown women).
