The Wet Look
Blame it on the return of all things ’80s, but hair gel is back. The most popular do? At Narciso Rodriguez, Versace and Alex-ander Wang, it was an androgynous style that’s slicked back in the front, with a loose, wavy texture at the back (not to be mistaken for a mullet). Gilbert took the duality a step further at Nina Ricci, where she left the bottom locks blond and matte but sleeked the top down using a brunette-tinted hair gel.
