Wet-look hair is certainly one of the more intimidating hairstyle trends in recent years to elbow its way into the real world, not to mention one of the most interesting. As with all things, the success of a hairstyle like this depends on a number of different things. The length of your hair, the texture and how "wet" the wet-effect appears can all create totally different hairstyles that fit this trend. Another big factor is hair length.

The longer a wet-look hairstyle is, the more intense the look can be. On the other hand, a short crop of slick wet-effect hair will never fade into the background!

The big question is: does wet-look hair work best with short or long hair? Vote for your favorite style above!

Rebel, rebel...

There is something undeniably rebellious about wet-look hair, especially on longer locks. When paired with fresh-faced makeup or something a little more intense for a night out - think black mascara and bold red lips - it's a hairstyle that just demands attention! For an ultra rock & roll feel, be extra generous with the styling gum.

Get the look: Take a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum and, starting on top of your head, work it down through the lengths of your hair. Add more gum as you go and run a wide-tooth comb through the hair for better coverage. Use your hands to muss and scrunch your style for added texture.

Short and [not so] sweet

Shorter hair is ideal for a more androgynous wet-look style. The same 'devil may care' vibe remains, only in a smoother, slightly quieter way. This hairstyle also works well with bold lip color or super clean makeup to give it a seriously fresh feel.

Get the look: As above, only stop after you've combed your hair back over.
