    As you can see, my hair is already wet, and all I need to do now is to brush it
    .
    Make sure there are no knots. We need perfectly brushed hair for this. When you brush your hair, make sure you start brushing from the ends so that you don't pull hair off. It's healthier and easier to brush starting from the ends and going higher.

  4. 4
    Separate the top part of your hair from the bottom and secure it with a clip
    .
    We will be using that part later. We will start working with the bottom part first.

  5. 5
    Separate the loose hair into two pieces, one on each side
    .

  6. 6
    I'm using Schwarzkopf Taft hair mousse
    .
    Shake it up, then spray the foam onto your hand.

  7. 7
    Put the mousse in your hair
    .
    Make sure your hair is completely wet. Mousse is a perfect tool to get the wet hair effect. It used to be quite popular in the 90s, but it's coming back.

  8. 8
    Ball the hair inside your fist and dry it off with a hair dryer but without letting the hair go
    .
    This is so that it keeps the shape and stays in a wave. I'm going to be using Philips Pro Care hair dryer on high heat. It takes a while to dry off.

  9. 9
    Do the same with the other side
    .
    Ball it up in your fist and then dry it off. Make sure it's completely dry or it's not going to keep the shape.

  10. 10
    The bottom part is done
    .
    Let's switch to the rest of your head.

  11. 11
    Remove the clip from your hair and separate it into two parts again
    .
    Put one side up with a clip.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    The rest of the hair will be separated into two more pieces
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Starting with the back part, apply the mousse to the hair
    .
    You can apply it straight onto your hair. Since I got too much of it, we can put some on the other part of the hair too.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Keeping your hair separated into two pieces, start by drying the back part first and then the other one
    .
    Use the same drying method as with the bottom part of the hair.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    The other half dried off already, so I need to put more mousse on it
    .
    If there's not enough mousse, your hair will just dry off and not have any waves. Ball it up and dry it off again.

  16. 16
    All we have left now is the clipped part of your hair
    .
    It's actually quite easy to style hair when you don't have too much hair. If you have any hair extensions, you can do the same procedure with them. Then you will have more volume on your head. Apply the mousse, then ball it up in a fist and keep holding it while you dry. Repeat with the last part.

  17. 17
    I balled the left piece of my hair and I'm going to dry it off
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Don't brush your hair when you finish, just mess it up with your hands a little
    .
    This is the kind of hairstyle that will last you for days or until the next time you wash your hair.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    To get it to last, we will need to apply some hair lacquer
    .
    I'm going to be using the same brand, Schwarzkopf Taft. Just on the sides a bit, inside, and finished!
