Created with copious amounts of hair gel and patience, the wet hair look has been making waves for years now. Not everyone can pull it off, but these 10 K-pop idols showed just how sexy it can be.
1. Sana (TWICE)
For “Feel Special”, TWICE’s Sana bought a special edge to this style with her two-toned pink and blonde hair. There’s no doubt that this look fit the glistening music video perfectly.
2. Tzuyu (TWICE)
TWICE’s Tzuyu has also tried the wet hair look before too. She looked fresh from a day at the beach during a mini fanmeeting for “Dance the Night Away”.
3. Seulgi (Red Velvet)
Red Velvet’s Seulgi started “RBB” promotions off with a splash when she served a wet hair look during the comeback stage. In an interview later that year, Seulgi said it was her favorite style from the era.
Wet hair styles are just perfect for any beach or pool-themed photoshoot. Sunmi has rocked the look several times, including as a model for HEAD x KIRSH.
5. Hwasa (MAMAMOO)
MAMAMOO’s “Hip” was full of unique looks, and Hwasa’s wet hair style was one of them. This style is often done with long hair, but she proved it looks just as good with a short cut.
6. Yves (LOONA)
LOONA’s Yves looked out-of-this-world in promotional shots for the group’s latest album, #. She wore the wet hair style slicked back, looking suave as ever.
Soloist and actress Suzy looked undeniably refreshing in this shoot for Sprite. She looks like she’s popping open a cold drink after a long afternoon of poolside fun.
As part of a shoot for Cosmopolitan, Yubin tried the wet hair look with a swimsuit. This is one of the most extreme examples of the trend, Yubin’s hair even sticking together in wet locks.
9. Hyolyn (SISTAR)
All the SISTAR members tried out the wet hair trend for their final mini-album, Insane Love. Hyolyn was one of the members who pulled it off perfectly, the style matching her sexy image.
10. Yura (Girl’s Day)
Girl’s Day’s Yura’s poolside SWIB pictorial wouldn’t have been complete without wet hair that made her look fresh from the water.
