Best Hairstyles for Wet Hair

Let’s face it: there are days when we barely have the time to brush our teeth, let alone style our hair. However, that’s not to say that you can’t pull off a cute hairstyle even on your busiest days. Whether you don’t have time to dry and style your hair after your morning shower or need a quick and easy style following your daily swim, there are some wonderful hairstyles for wet hair that you can try.

The Sleek Ponytail

Want to keep it simple? The sleek ponytail is for you. Here’s what you’ll need:

Starting with wet or damp hair, comb it out thoroughly and then pull up into a high ponytail. Be sure to comb hair directly back from the crown of your head to achieve that sleek look (though if you have bangs that tend to dry pretty well on your own, you can leave these down if you choose). Once your hair is pulled up into place, apply a small amount of gel to finish off the sleek look. You may also want to add some gel to the ponytail itself and scrunch the hair with your hands to achieve a cute wavy or curly style.

The Elegant Low Bun

If you’ve got a little bit more time, you can pull of something more put together and elegant, such as this adorable low bun. You’ll need:

  • a comb
  • a ponytail holder
  • hair pomade
  • several bobby pins

Begin by applying a small amount of pomade from the roots to the ends, then combing your hair directly back, just as you would have for the sleek ponytail style described above. Instead of securing your hair into a high ponytail, pull it into a low ponytail. Now, twist the hair and wrap it around itself to create a bun. While holding the bun in place against the head with one hand, use the other hand to push bobby pins through the top, bottom, left, and right portions of the bun to secure it in place.

The Side Twist Bun

If you know how to French braid, this style is right up your alley. Here’s what you need:

  • a ponytail holder
  • some hair gel
  • a few bobby pins

Begin by applying a small amount of gel to your hair and combing it through from roots to ends. Then, begin French braiding the hair along one side of the head until the braid reaches the back of the head. Now, brush the remainder of the hair back to meet the braid and pull into a ponytail before twisting it into a bun and securing with bobby pins. Cute!

The Braided Bun

If French braiding isn’t your thing, you can still pull off a super cute style with a traditional braid. You’ll need:

  • pomade hair wax
  • a ponytail holder
  • several bobby pins
  • a small hair elastic

Start by dispersing pomade throughout the hair and then pulling it back into a low ponytail. Next, braid the ponytail and secure with a small hair elastic. Now, take the braided part and wrap it around itself to create a bun before securing it with several bobby pins.

These looks can all be pulled off in just a matter of minutes with the right tools, so be sure to give them a try the next time you need to get ready in a hurry!
