How to Get the Wet Mop Haircut
This wet mop haircut is easier than it seems to achieve. It’s a messier version of what the Beatles or Justin Bieber had going on, with wavy hair instead of smooth.
Alongside pictures of the look you’re going for, you’ll want to ask your barber for a choppy bowl cut in front without it extending to the sides.
Most of these looks bring it down below the eyebrow line but do whatever feels right for you.
This style naturally adds volume to the top of the head, but if your hair struggles to maintain volume, read on for styling tips and tricks!
How to Style Your Mop
Growing your hair out longer can be an intimidating process. Styling it becomes more necessary to give it definition, rather than allowing it to look drab and greasy.
You’re going to notice the importance of a good brush, especially if you have more curls that need taming.
But you only want to brush your locks when they’re wet to avoid frizziness. A great brush for wet hair is the Spornette” 21″ Classic Nylon Cushion; it’s gentle, preventing breakage and damage.
Another helpful tip would be to use an old T-shirt to dry your hair instead of a standard bath towel.
A regular towel sucks away moisture and can rough up the hair cuticle, causing frizz. A T-shirt keeps your hair texture defined and healthy.
After brushing out your hair, you’ll want to do one of two things, depending on your hair type.
If your hair is curly or wavy, add some sea salt spray to give your locks some volume and definition.
If your hair is smooth and straight, we suggest a mousse to give it that perfectly messy look—followed by a hairdryer with a diffuser.
If you don’t like the feel of hair products but still want some added volume, pairing a good round brush with your hairdryer works wonders. The Spornette Mini Rounder will add waves that last all day.
It can be difficult to learn how to use these products for the first time. But practice makes perfect, and soon it can become a five-minute addition to your morning routine. Use this article to get you started!
