Wet look hair remains a little hard to pull off in real life, but the one occasion where it's an awesome option is for a sultry, dramatic night out look - especially with a bob cut! A slicked back hairstyle throws all the emphasis on the face, creating the perfect excuse to try a bold lip or some intense eyeliner, so why not give it a try this weekend?

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with clean, damp hair, spritz Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. Use a comb to ensure even coverage because the spray doubles as a thermal protectant.

Step 2

Rough dry your hair until it's completely dry. Keep your blowdryer moving and twist small pieces of hair as you dry them to create loose, undone waves.

Step 3

Take a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty - dime sized or even slightly smaller - and warm it in your hands to emulsify it.

Step 4

Starting at the hairline, work the putty back through your hair in quick, sweeping motions. You don't need to cover all of it, just the top until the hair can be swept back and will stay put on its own.

Step 5

Secure the top layers of hair with bobby pins. You can pin the hair on either side or create a half-up look by joining pieces of hair together at the back.

Step 6

Scrunch the ends to add texture and finish with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
