Slick Wet Look Hair or Pompadour - Which Partyy Hairstyle Will Yoru Choose?

The party season has officially begun and it's time to glam up from tip to toe and look your very best, especially in all those Instagram-worthy pics that you'd be clicking with your friends and family during the holidays. Why not try two of the hottest hairstyles of the season and pump in some extra oomph in your mane! Both wet look hair and pompadours are in major trend these days and must be tried at least once, while they are enjoying their days in the limelight.

Wet Look Hair

Kick start your winter festivities in style; a sophisticated wet look glossed to perfection will keep all your strands in place and lend you a chic and classy appeal.

Wet looks can be slicked back or created with a fresh-out-of-the-shower tousled finish. If you're not into ultra-glossy hairstyles, a matte-finish wet look will fit your bill perfectly. Just dab your wet hair with some styling gel and scrunch individual hair sections to create a natural-looking wet look hairstyle. But if love a touch of good ol' glamour, slick your hair neatly in place by brushing your gelled tresses with a fine-toothed comb.

Wet look hairstyles work really well for retro-themed events as well as for times when you need to pop out of the shower and scoot to a bash!

A pompadour might be a tad more fashion-forward, but it's pumped with style and glamour and is therefore a perfect a party hairstyle worth fawning over! You should have at least shoulder-length hair to pull off a pomp like a runway star. It looks incredible, adds a few inches to your stature and can be paired with almost every kind of outfit and worn to all occasions!

To make a flawless pompadour hairstyle, you need to back-brush your top hair to build a good height and volume, secure the teased section with a generous spritz of strong hold hairspray and smooth over your face-framing hair-pieces over it to cover up the clutter. Mist your hairstyle with some more hairspray and use the back of your comb to smooth flyaways and lend your hairstyle a polished finish.

A pomp is a lot like a bouffant; the only difference is that the pomp is swept up from the face and worn as close to the hairline as possible, whereas a bouffant is created much closer to the crown of the head.
