I couldn’t help but notice the effortlessly cool hair down the runway at the Myer Spring Summer 14 collection launch. Kevin Murphy (AKA the internationally renowned king of hair) was once again behind this amazing show.

Kevin created a modern look that was inspired by water and feathers to keep it in line with the Australian theme on the night. The look was textured beach waves with a sleek wet finish, The wet look is always a favourite down the runway and is one of the biggest current hair trends, I love the look (the hair should look like there is product in it) it can be hard to achieve so follow these steps below to master the look.

The most important product to achieve this look is SUPER.GOO, it gives your hair a rubbery wet look.

SUPER.GOO 01GET THE LOOK

  1. Smooth over the hair gently using a smoothing brush to remove tangles.
  2. While the hair is still damp, apply a good amount of ANTI.GRAVITY lotion from roots to ends and dry in.
  3. Beginning at the front of the head, take a horizontal section about three inches across and one inch deep, back brush the roots gently and wrap away from the face with a medium curling iron. Remove the curling iron and pin hair into place with a PIN.CLIP, leaving the ends out.
  4. Repeat the same technique on each side of the head.
  5. Let the hair sit until it cools.Lucas Dawson Photography
  6. Beginning at the back, remove the clips one by one and smooth over as you go, bringing the sections together using a smoothing brush.
  7. Using a little SESSION.SPRAY, smooth the sides straight back from the face and pin to control the hair, smooth all the way to the ends of the hair creating an undulating wave and not a curl.
  8. To finish, take some SUPER.GOO and apply using a flat palm movement to stretch out and control the wave from the nape to the top. Allow to relax before again molding with your palms as you go. Finish with a light mist of SHIMMER.SHINE.
