Chris Appleton is a celebrity hairstylist who regularly works with Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora, Katy Perry, and the queen of pop culture herself, Kim Kardashian West. He's created some of their buzziest and longest-enduring hairstyles. In Kardashian's case, Appleton is responsible for the hairstyle that's quickly becoming her go-to: the wet look. This style was a huge trend on the NYFW runways and continued to be in London, Milan, and Paris throughout the entirety of fashion month. It's also one of the most fail-safe styles for celebs to sport on the red carpet since it's chic, sexy, and edgy.
With that being said, it's not the most wearable look for day-to-day life. Slicked-back shiny hair looks amazing, but it can be intimidating to try and feel rather out of place when you're out and about in daily life. Appleton has the solution. Here, he shows us how to create an easy wet-look hairstyle that's totally wearable—whether you're going out to grab drinks, or meeting your friends for a weekend brunch. Watch the video to see Appleton create this wearable wet look.
