Every once in a while, a new term pops up for a beauty trend touting sleek, almost wet hair that gives you that “right out of the salon” look. A few years ago, it was “glass hair,” a straight style (often worn by stars like Kim Kardashian) that was so smooth and shiny it could reflect light as well. . . good . . . a glass. Now, there’s a similar hair trend taking over red carpets and Instagram, called “liquid hair” – only this iteration takes shine up a notch.
“Liquid hair is long, perfectly straight and extremely shiny,” celebrity hairstylist Ryan Richman told POPSUGAR. “It takes healthy, shiny hair to the next level, and it reflects light and looks almost runny.”
The liquid hair look has been worn by Kardashian and others like Megan Fox, Dua Lipa, and Jennifer Lopez before, which Richman says is why the trend’s popularity is on the rise. “The trend is also extremely popular because it is very easy to achieve,” he said. “It’s straight hair raised up using the right products and tools.”
To get the look at home, Richman recommends massaging damp hair with a light hair oil – her favorite is Monat Rejuvenique Intensive Oil – before continuing with a hairdryer and a wide plate flat iron to make it even more. more elegant.
