If you've been waiting for the perfect time to try a wet-look hairstyle for the first time, it won't get much better than awards season. The next few weeks are all about glamorous beauty looks, big dresses and a whole lot of gorgeous celebrity hairstyles, so why not join in?

We don't advise you to wear it to work necessarily, but it's definitely a style to consider for your next night out!

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with dry or freshly washed, damp hair, brush it all back off your face so the lengths are hanging down your back. Don't worry if you have greasy roots, this hairstyle will hide them in plain sight - i.e. make 'em look deliberate!

Step 2
Place a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel on your fingers, rub your hands together, then work it back through your hair. Start at the hairline and work your way back, adding more gel as needed.

Step 3
To add texture, gently scrunch the lengths of your hair. If you want a more ruffled look than the model in the photo, shake your fingers throughout to muss the hair before the gel sets.

Step 4
Smooth your hair down from top to bottom and you're all set!

Now all you need to do is decide on the outfit and makeup to go with your new red carpet worthy hairstyle... this A-list beauty thing isn't so hard after all.
