Get Ready for NYFW Half Wet Waves From Hellessy

Marisa Haber | 11 September 2018

Half wet waves have hit the runway.

One thing we can say for sure about many New York Fashion Week hairstyles this season is that they are elevated everyday styles anyone can achieve. Yes, that’s right, even you can create a chic high fashion style at home. TRESemmé Global Stylist Justine Marjan proves this with the incredibly sexy and sultry half wet waves style she created for the Hellessy Show.”It’s a cool, undone, natural looking half wet wave for the girl on the go,” explains Marjan, “kind of like she let her hair air dry and it’s still a little damp.” We love how flattering this style is for all hair types as it’s essentially all about enhancing the texture your hair creates from being in a loose braid. Keep reading for the special hair hacks Marjan uses on her models to give them beautiful half wet waves.

Step 1: Start by washing your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner for a frizz-free and smooth foundation.

Step 2:  Once hair is dry, separate hair into 6 inch sections and create a loose braid per each section. Leave the ends straight. Spray TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hold Level 1: Texture Hairspray on each braid to prep the style.

Step 3: Flat iron each braid and let it cool for a few seconds before gently unbraiding.

Step 4: Use a straightener to detail waves around the face. Spray sugar water throughout, scrunching pieces to enhance the waves.

Step 5:  Complete the half wet waves look by spraying TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hold Level 4: Extend Hairspray all over to achieve a sleek, wavy and textured style without stiffness.
