Wet-look hair has been a major trend on the Spring 2014 runways, but we never thought the style would translate to real life. That is, until we saw Khloe Kardashian step out with slicked back, damp-looking hair, and then spotted sister Kourtney wearing the exact same look to a cocktail event just two days later.
The sisters made the look work by slicking back the hair at the crown of the head while leaving the ends mostly product-free, so the tips are soft and polished, not crunchy with gel.
The style strikes us as a fresh alternative to an updo — a way to keep hair off the face to dress up an outfit while still leaving the length in back. That said, certain face shapes will want to avoid the slicked-back look; it doesn’t flatter elongated faces or particularly angular features, which look better with soft, face-framing styles.
