Wavy hair is very pretty. Wet weave styles are beautiful and could transform your entire look with a few easy steps.

50 Wet and Wavy Weave Hairstyles

Wet and wavy styles are not necessarily wet like the name suggests. The hair does have to be wetted to get the look and a few hair supplies are added. But the wet style does give a wet look. It’s the look wavy hair would get if drenched under water. I like this style for the cut variation of looks it has.

This hairstyle can range from sleek to voluminous depending on the wave pattern and looseness. The wet look does not have to be slicked back and sleek like it once was. But it can now be styled in a side part, half-up, or wear it as a ponytail. 

1. Side Part

Side parts look good with every style. The wet and wavy hair is cute. I believe sleek baby hairs go well with the wet looks. The lifted front is a good addition to this style and also helps keep the hair out of your face.

2. Color

I love this wet pink style. The soft finger waves at the top leading to the wet loose waves is a very unique style. 

3. Half-up

The wet look can work on any waves. They also can range from the loose to tight wave patterns. These are larger and loose. It looks great in the half-up style.

4. Wet Wave

I like the slicked down top of this style. You could start the waves at the roots if you prefer. But creating a defining part by slicking down the roots is pretty. 

5. Side Part

This is a semi wet look. Parts of the hair have dried and seem to be expanding. While the wet part still has a lot of definition. Both styles are cute alone. But the semi wet look is beautiful. 

6. Double Ponytail

I am seeing more and more childlike bows and barrettes being used in adult hairstyles. I feel like it’s a fun and cutesy way to dress up a style. The fun hair clips and bows compliment these two small ponytails in this wet and wavy look. 

7. Bob Knots

I like bun and styles a lot. The pairing of these two knots with the wet waves was a great idea. This style is so cute and looks like a fantastic style to wear.

8. Highlight

I like highlights in every style. I love the dimension and definition it provides to styles. The blonde highlights look gorgeous in this style.

9. Short With Small Ponytails

Adding small ponytails to the front of this style is a great way to switch up the look. The small ponytails add a playfulness to this look that goes great with the wet bob. 

10. Waist Length

Waist length styles normally are harder to style. But this wavy style would be an easy choice for longer hair. You may use a little more product than you would if it was shorter. But it would be worth it for this look. 

11. Middle Part Bob

The bob styles look good with any style. I like the shape of this bob with the wet waves. It looks great with her face shape. It’s important that you know which hair styles and cuts look best with your face shape and desired look. 

12. Half-Up Bun

Top buns are a good go to style. I like this half-up bun style. The bun is a good size and goes great with the big wet waves in the back.

13. Long With Rubber Band Design

Rubber banding hair is a great way to style and create a design if you can’t braid. I like the crisscross design. It is stylish and a great add on to this style.

14. Braided Front

The two feed in braids coming down the side are a different way to do a braided front style. There are several options for braids and this one goes perfect with this style. The wet waves look great in this type of style.

15. One Side

The side swept style is stunning. The curled baby hairs look fantastic with the wet waves and this color looks great with her skin tone. The side swept styles are great for formal occasions or any occasion requiring you to dress up. 

16. Double Buns

This blonde goes great with the brown in this style. I love that the buns are also wet like the rest in the hair. It looks more cohesive. 

17. Ombre

This black to blonde and brown ombré style is fantastic. I love the layered colors of this style that gives this dimension and texture. 

18. Large Bantu Knots

Bantu knots are a great style by themselves. Adding large ones to this half-up style is the perfect idea for a quick style change. The wet look is perfect for this. 

19. Angled Bob

Source: @aligracehair_1

Angled bobs are my favorite with layers. But this blunt cut wet angled bob is gorgeous. The waves add body to this bob and looks great.

20. Ponytails

The double ponytails are very easy to do. They would look great on casual days. The wet wavy look is sleek  and sassy adding ponytails gives it a fun vibe. 

21. Red

I was disappointed in the lack of color I could find for the wet wavy style. But this red looks gorgeous. Color enhances a style and brings out the texture. So don’t hesitate to do this with a colorful look. 

22. Large Waves

Larger waves look great wet. This style gives a beach wave look. This style looks great side swept but would look good in any way you want to style it.

23. Long Bob

Source: @tishaesworld_

I like this full long bob. It has volume and doesn’t look flat. This style looks great wet. There are areas where the waves are well defined and pop out and other areas that they are smaller. This style looks amazing.

24. Sleek Waves

I like the sleek wet style. The waves are well defined and pop in this style. I don’t mind the lack of volume in these styles because they do have a good amount of movement still.

25. Skunk Stripe 

Source: @bombtress

The skunk stripe is a great idea. I love how that part pops out. The highlights look great as well in this wet style. These waves are also not uniform which looks great.

26. High Ponytail

Source: @jett_black

I love the contrast of the flat front fronts with the wet waves in the back. This rubber band style leads to a small high wavy ponytail. This style looks good but you also have the option of leaving the hair down or only doing the design on one side to create the side swept look. 

27. Headband

Source: @marykbella

I love how fast and easy headband wigs are. This wet and wavy one would be a fantastic addition to any wig collection. You don’t have to worry about styling either with this type of wig.

28. Side Ponytail

Source: @aligracehair_1

From the colorful rubber bands to the side ponytail the style screams fun. I like that this style wasn’t left straight. The wet waves look great with this styling choice. 

29. Blonde

Adding color to your wet waves will refresh the look. I love this caramel blonde and brown style. I think it would have looked even better sleek and wet.

30. Bob

This small bob looks good, wet and wavy. I like the cut of this bob. It frames her face perfectly and looks amazing without all the volume. 

31. Low Ponytail

Source: @the1bunqueen

The extra low ponytail is very unique. I don’t believe I ever saw a large wet wavy ponytail. This ponytail is so cute and looks great with the sleek backed style.

32. Side Part Color

Source: @promptlypolishedbeauty

This blended color bob looks great. I like the definition of the waves and love the look of this style. This look is gorgeous and a great length for people who do not like extremely long hair. 

33. High Ponytail Half-Up

Source: @thesophiechanelle

This high ponytail is nice looking. The waves in this look are large and well defined.  I like this style for a quick night out or casual day. This style would look great with a shorter ponytail as well as a few more baby hairs. 

34. Ponytail

Source: @ericakane79

This is a nice ponytail to try if you just want a quick wet wavy look. Ponytails are very easy to do yourself. So this would be a great option for someone who wants to try this style but still slightly unsure. 

35. Auburn

The before and after of this picture is amazing. I like the flatter wet styles as well as the ones with more volume. I love the auburn color of this style. The orange and red clash together well. The high tones and lows really bring out the dimension and waves in this style. 

36. Straight back

Source: @topnotchtouch

This is another cute way to add pizzazz to a style without braiding. These connected rubber bands create a cute style. I like the slight swirl to baby hairs that’s a fantastic addition to the overall look. 

37. Colorful

Source: @iam_jonathan

I love the light and dark purple of this style. This is a unique wavy style because the waves are extremely loose. This style looks amazing with the sleek roots leading to the wet and wavy tresses. 

38. Slick Back 

Source: @youngafricana

This slicked back style is pretty. I like the addition of the two pieces of hair in the front instead of pushing it all back. The soft gelled back style looks great.

39. Short

Source: @youngafricana

This short wavy look is stunning. I like the side swept style on this look. It gives a nice classy look to the wet waves. 

40. Headband

Source: @aligracehair_1

Headbands are a great way to accessorize styles.

It is very quick and easy to place on a headband and go. You could also use hair clips or pins to style and decorate your hairstyles. 

41. Braided Front

Source: @lilitaley

Braiding over or under handed is not a big difference in technique but looks very different in styles. These braids look to be blended well into the wet look. 

42. Thick Waves

Source: @emmy_signature

This is a unit of thick bundled waves. This style has more volume because of the size of the waves. I think this style would look best  in a half up look with buns. 

43. Slicked Back

Source: @aligracehair_1

The slick back look is the revival style of this wet and wavy look. People still get this style because it is gorgeous and edgy. This style is worth a try atleast once. 

44. Long Layers

Source: @dailydoseofhair

Layering waist length hair seems like a great idea. The layers would add extra movement to the wet waves. The baby hairs on this style adds a nice little flare to this style.

45. Water Wave

Source: @youngafricana

These burgundy wet waves are amazing. This middle part style looks so good with the layers and styled with wet waves.

46. Side Knots

Source: @aligrace_1

These two knots instead of being on the top of the head are on the sides. These tighter smaller waves create are fuller look then the looser larger waves. 

47. Half-Up

Source: @aligracehair_1

The waves in this style are less defined but still there. This messy half-up ponytail looks great. The wet waves look good like this. 

48. Fluffed

Source: @alicegracehair_1

This is a cute color and style. The fluffed look gives these waves more body. It looks just as good as freshly wet looking style. 

49. Fluffed Half-Up

Source: @alluringhands_

This is a great example of tight waves. These waves are so close together the style looks like a fluffed style. I believe highlights or color would have enhanced this style by adding depth and dimension to the style. 

50. Small Braids

Source: @chantler_tiara

These small braids are braided around to the back of her hair to give a pretty crown effect on her head. The wet waves are large and very cute.
