Whether it's because you sleep in, go straight from the gym to work, or are long overdue for a new hair dryer, sometimes, you just don't have time for a post-shower blowout. And with the warm weather of summer on the way, everyday styling can be more challenging than usual. We’ve got the looks to turn soaking wet, just-turned-off-the-faucet hair into something that looks polished and intentional once it dries. You can style each look from home or the gym bathroom — minimal product required — and be out the door in five minutes flat. So go ahead and hop in the shower, because we’ll get you from there to out the door in no time.
A sleek parting and cool definition gives a segmented bun an edgy vibe. Start by smoothing Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega Repair 11-in-1 Leave In through your wet hair and use a comb to divide it into three clean sections from the hairline to the neck. Comb each section back into a low, tight ponytail, positioning the center ponytail slightly above the other two, and secure each with a small, black elastic. Take all three ponytails and braid them into a simple three-strand plait, tying it off at the ends. Wrap the braid up and around into a bun shape, covering the top elastic but allowing the two side elastics to peek through. Seeing those black elastics give it a cool vibe. Pin the bun in place with bobby pins, but leave out the tail end of the braid. Work some Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Amino-Q Hold Gel through it and style it so it falls sharply to one side for a graphic finish.
Braids have become a staple trend on the hair scene, so why not try milk maid braids on your wet locks? Comb your hair and work out all the tangles. Create a center part and bring it all the way down to the back. Divide your hair in two sections. Place some Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Amino-Q Hold Mousse on your roots and work into the crown. Comb hair nice and taught and begin a thick inside out French Braid on one side of the head. Place elastic rubber band to hold ends and repeat on other side. Bring one braid up and anchor to head with bobby pins. For an extra boho summer look, add a few little flowers to the seam where the braids meet the head.
A go-to style for wet hair (with the option for romantic beachy waves once it dries!) is the ever popular top-knot. Run Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Mousse through your damp hair for smoothness and strong hold. Tie your hair in a tight top knot, but secure it with one long bobby pin instead of a band to avoid kinks. If you do it tight enough, it will smooth out everything and create a pretty wave once you take it down. For cooler, messier texture, you can substitute Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Amber+ Oil Nutrition Oil-In Serum in place of mousse, then gather the hair at the nape of the neck, divide it in half and tightly twist the sections around each other in the opposite direction.
With the warmer weather of summer on its way, it’s time to give your tresses a break from heat styling and go wet!
