Beyoncé’s Hairstylist Dishes on How to Recreate Her “Wet” Grammy Look

beyonce-wet-hair-neal-farinah-hype-hairLast night’s Grammy Awards was a big deal for several reasons, one of them undoubtedly being Beyoncé’s opening act.

Belting out “Drunk In Love,” alongside hubby Jay-Z, Bey revealed a wet-and-wavy hairstyle that was first presented on her recent visual album. Although a cute style, reactions spanned from “Ooh, girl” to “Ooh, girl…,” leaving some a little confused on how to recreate the look. Luckily for us, ELLE.com snatched up some talk time with Yoncé’s Neal Farinah to explain how to recreate the drenched tresses.

To create the waves, Farinah wrapped sections of the towel-dried locks around a quarter-inch curling iron and blow-dried to hold the texture. Then, he applied a healthy amount of oil to the strands from root to tip to achieve the “wet” look. Next? A fresh blast of water and sea salt. “I want to warn you: Don’t use too much salt because it can be drying,” he said. “I generally like mixing one teaspoon of salt with a full spray bottle of water.”


So why the wet look for the songstress’ collab with her hubby? “The song is about two people who are madly in love and celebrating their sexuality, and to me there is nothing sexier than wet hair.”
