• The Wet Look, Your Best Go-To for the Summer

    Dames, there are so many reasons I love the “wet look” for summer. Here’s a few top reasons it’s my go-to look that everyone envies achieving.

    1. It’s a great beach/pool party look that makes as if you went into the water, but like, who does that?
    2. You have 5 min to get ready after the shower to head to a party and you don’t want a wet bun.
    3. You’re on vacation and you don’t want to use hot tools.

    If those aren’t enough reasons for you to master this look, then you’re just not that into it BUT if you are here’s how you do it.

    1. Make sure your hair is wet at the root, even just a little damp, you want to saturate your root with product and then evenly distribute through your ends.
    2. If you don’t have the 1 perfect product to do the trick, always mix a gel, a styling cream, and a tiny bit of oil (coconut oil is amazing if you like the smell).
    3. Use your towel gloves and scrunch out as much water as you can.

     

    Below are a few of my favorite options:

    Organics Colour Systems “Control Shape”

    Industry Insider Secret – Every celeb stylist that knows whats up uses this combo for THE perfect wet look. Every A-lister has had this product combo on their head.

    This is my personal favorite combo- IGK Coconut Oil Gel mixed with Catwalk Sessions wet look Gel

     

    Here’s my video showing you how to do it the straight version way- so great for a formal look..

    Hope this helps with which products to use and how to do it! Let me know how it goes and ask me any questions. @thehairdame

    summer hairstyles with secret extensions

     

    Look 1: A side french braid is an easy go to, but thats not all thats happening here. She is wearing the Salon Edition Secret Extensions, which is 18″ of length. You can use your HairClutch to assist you with holding the hair while you beach wave it. Then throw them on and braid the side and bam, sexy summer here you go!

    Look 2: To knots aren’t going anywhere, they are still cool, and this summer you can play with this look like Jamie did by adding Secret extensions to give you blonder vibes with this style. Jamie has hardly any blonde in her natural hair, and you can see here, she has a flawless balayage look going on.

    Look 3: A top bun is always a good go to but how about bangs? Yes!! These are actually clip on bangs. The Secret bangs are so cool, they have a great shape that are easily customizable in the cut and the colors blend in so well with any hair color. you can get yours here.

    Look 5: Fishtail braids? Yes please! Lets be honest though, these braids look cooler with a pop of color in them. You can achieve this look by using some blonde Secret Extensions.

    FullSizeRender 5Look 6: Add accessories to your style! In this case, adding little metal flowers or cute pints to your bobble braid is a nice touch. It just spices up your style and takes it from day to night seemlessly.
