There’s one trend we’ve been seeing over the past few years on the red carpet and we’re still undivided on it—wet-look hair. While it kind of looks like you’ve walked right out of the shower and didn’t have time to get your hair done, there’s also something really chic about it, especially when it’s paired with a wet-look dress. Regardless of how we feel about the trend, celebrities can’t seem to get enough of it both on the catwalk and on the red carpet. Here are a few celebrities who’ve embraced wet-look hair.

Kaia Gerber

Wet-look hair isn’t only for the red carpet, it had its moment on the runway back in 2019 and Kaia Gerber was one of the many models featured with wet look finger waves.

Megan Fox

Megan Fox looked absolutely stunning in this wet look dress from Di Petsa during her photoshoot with InStyle. The wet-look hair really completes the look.


When it comes to fashion, Zendaya can do no wrong and she proved it with this all-out wet look at the 78th Venice Film Festival last week to promote her latest movie, Dune. The wet dress and wet hair are a match made in heaven for a style icon.

Kim Kardashian

Back in 2019, Kim Kardashian went full-glam with this head-to-toe wet look at the Met Gala. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star looked like she emerged from a body of water.


Ciara has rocked wet-look hair many times including back in 2017 at the American Music Awards and more recently at the Dolce & Gabanna show in Venice.
