How to get the wet hair look in 3 easy steps

The only products Shini Park needs is coconut oil, a comb and a styling cream.

We’ve seen it on catwalks, on models and – most importantly – on Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian. The wet hair look has been everywhere in the past few years, and it’s easy to understand why: it’s the perfect hairstyle for evenings out.

We asked Shini Park – the photographer, web designer and founder of Park & Cube – to share her step-by-step guide to mastering the drenched ’do. “It’s the perfect look for a hot summer night, and so easy to do at home with coconut oil,” she says. 

For starters, it’s good if your hair is newly washed. Then, apply coconut oil from the ends up. Use quite a lot, and grab tufts of your hair and squeeze the oil into it. If you’re applying the coconut oil outside, make sure that it’s not too chilly as the oil easily lumps if it’s under room temperature.

Comb your hair with your fingers or a broad teethed comb to make sure every strand is covered by the oil.

When you’ve combed through your hair, apply a styling product with some shimmer for a longer-lasting and better-looking result. Shini Park used On with the Glow Styling Cream from H&M.
