After seasons and seasons of washing our hair as little as possible, it maybe time to make the switch from unwashed lengths, or at least look like it. Since this summer is all about sleek and wet hair looks that last way beyond the shower, it’s time to rock a look that looks like you just combed it back after a quick dip in the water. I’ve seen everyone from cool girls like Joan Smalls walk the red carpet wearing this look to girls on the runway at Calvin Klein and Dior strut down the runway wearing wet lengths. But you don’t have to be a celebrity or at fashion week to wear this style. It translates into everyday quite easily, becoming a more softer and cleaner approach that just boarders on the wet look.

I’ll never say no to a great braid; I’m always looking for plait inspiration. Lately I’ve been eyeing it girls like Joan Smalls, Olivia Palermo, and Chrissy Teigen—they all posses a lovely braid game. Their twined tresses are always full bodied, lived-in and perfectly imperfect. How do these girls pull it off? Is it a major Hollywood secret? Not really, the secret is actually quite simple, and with the help of a hairstylist friend I figured out the little nuance that can help you to achieve this look as well. Get the scoop below. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →
