How to Get Wet Look for Natural Hair

The wet look is a hairstyle that I have been pretty fascinated about for an unhealthy amount of time - yes, don't judge me. I love how the wet look transforms your hair into this shiny, defined, and drippy look. 

And if you are wondering how you are going to achieve this soaking wet look on your hair, it involves a good amount of gel and yes, more gel. So if you have a phobia for having too much gel on your hair, you can try the wet look with clip-ins instead.

To achieve the perfect wet look, I have selected this video tutorial by Nae2curly to guide you:
