This look takes its cues from two recent trends: wet-look texture and gym-inspired styling. It’s hair that’s neither damp or gym appropriate, but carries a hint of moisture and the sheen of healthful activity. Unlike other air-dried styles, this look has a healthy dose of root-volume, giving you all the sexiness of wet-look with a more flattering silhouette. Click the style notes for the step-by-step. –– Laura Martin

Step: Scrunch a handful of volume foam into roots. Mist damp, clean hair from root to ends with wave mist, then add a thin layer of healing oil.

Step: Diffuse dry, tousling with finger and lifting at roots to maximize volume.

Step: Spritz roots with short burst of refinish, adding volume and grit, until desired texture is achieved.
