How to Pull Off the Wet Hair Look à la Penelope Cruz


We caught sight of the slicked back wet hair look on runways earlier this year, and since then we’ve been looking for the extra-adventurous style on the red carpets. Last night, Penelope Cruz pulled off the style perfectly at the Los Angeles Film Festival’s premiere of To Rome, With Love. While it might seem intimidating, there’s an easy way to make this look work for you in real life. Click through for our tips on wearing the wet hair look!

1. This style works best as a night time hairstyle. Reserve it for an evening out on the town or a weekend soiree—try not to rock it at the office (unless you work at an extra fashion forward company).

2. Wear it with an equally sleek and edgy outfit. A streamlined style will help play up the clean lines of the hair style, which in turn helps spotlight your face. 

3. Keep your makeup simple. If you want to play up color, use it in only one area—your eyes or your lips, not both. Try a sexy dark smoky eye, like Penelope, or a bold lip color like Tangerine Tango

4. Do call attention to your cheek bones. With your hair pushed away from your face, this is the perfect time to create goddess-like high cheek bones. We like using High Beam to get a pearlescent glow.
