Do It Yourself: Embellished wet bun from Chanel Spring/Summer 2012

This season’s biggest fashion trend was Aquatic. From shell-coloured pastels, scaly surface texture, pearl accessories and ocean-themed prints the underwater love has been dominating the Spring/Summer 2012 catwalks at Chanel, Mary Katrantzou and Giorgio Armani. But the aquatic theme has spilled over into the beauty domain with the Wet hair look.

Out off all the wet-look hairstyles, Chanel was definitely our favourite. The models walked out with a sleek pulled back hair with a low messy bun adorned with shiny pearl pins. 

When the rains are pouring in the last thing we want to do is our hair. Wear your locks slicked up in a wet bun. They are cute, polished with a hint of disheveled, and are fuss-free. Try these five simple steps and transform into a classy underwater beauty!

1. Use a spray bottle to wet your hair and coat your hair with a mousse. Try Sebastian Forte Mousse that provides a strong manageable hold. 
2. Comb your hair back with wide toothed comb into a low ponytail. Try Divo wide tooted comb. 
3. Apply a hair mask or a conditioner to the ends of the ponytail so they stay wet-looking and don’t dry out. If you don’t have a mask or a conditioner, try any regular coconut hair oil.  
4. Then twist the tail into a bun and pin it in place with pearl pins. Don’t worry if it looks messy and has loose ends. Leave the ends sticking out so that the result is a bit imperfect.    
5. Top it up with loads of shine spray to amp up the wet look. Once the hair has dried, finish the hairstyle by adding more pearl hairpins.

Don't let anything stop you from trying this hairdo. If you can't find similar pins like the Chanel ones you can make them easily with some loose pearls, booby pin and gauge wire. So go ahead, get your hair wet. Happy Monsoons!
