You Don't Have To Be Beyoncé To Pull Off This Wet-Hair Look

Like top knots or mermaid waves, some hairstyles seem to almost exclusively belong to the long-hair set. The wet-hair trend is no different. Whether it’s on the runway or the red carpet, there's no shortage of long locks worn gelled back. But, what about those of us who choose to wear our hair on the shorter side? Does this look work for all the bobs out there?
With that question in mind, we grabbed our favorite gel and challenged hairstylist Adam Maclay to create a wearable, wet-hair look for beauty writer Maria’s chin-grazing locks. The result is a sleek, wet effect at the roots, with textured ends. And, it'll inspire envy in people of all hair lengths.
