Wet look hair can be worn in a whole bunch of different ways but, sometimes, keeping it simple is your best option. For this, you need a fuss-free hairstyle to apply a wet-look finish to. What better 'do than a classic topknot? It's easy to style and even easier to transform into a runway-esque updo, nay chignon, with a little product and about five minutes in front of a mirror!

Subtle enough for work but interesting enough for a night out, this hairstyle kind of does it all. To get the look, just follow the simple tutorial below...

Step one

Brush your hair through to remove any knots before you begin then gather it all back into a high ponytail. Secure with a fabric hair elastic.

Step two

Warm some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands then smooth it from your hairline back towards your pony. Start with a small amount and add more as needed, just be careful not to overload your tresses.

Step three

Apply more gum to the ponytail until it has a slight sheen. You can use a comb to help work it through the hair if necessary.

Step four

Twist the hair into a high bun and pin. You can be as creative as you like at this point by creating a chignon of some kind or even braiding the hair before you pin it up. It's quite literally all up to you!

Step five

Flatten any unwanted flyaways with some more gum and complete any finishing touches with your hands. That's it!
