Wet & Wavy weave is popular because of its carefree look and ease of maintenance. This is a looser curl pattern that features high shine. The style comes in both synthetic and human hair versions. Ideal for the summer months, this style suggests a Caribbean or Hawaiian vacation! There are many ways to use this hair to your advantage as a style statement.

Half Weave

Consider having the hair attached to the perimeter of your head, and leaving the top front portion of your hair out. This style will allow you to blend your natural hair into the weave, thus creating a more natural hairline that can be parted. If you go this route, make sure that your hair closely matches the wave pattern and colour of the weave. Ways to achieve this are by texturising your hair, straw or roller setting your hair, or applying a pomade or gel to natural hair.

Full Weave With Bangs

You can have your entire head done with Wet & Wavy weave and incorporating fringe. This look will need to be cut into the style, with the back left long and sexy or short and sassy as a bob. This style will mean that all of your own hair is braided or covered with a stocking cap, and the only hair that is visible is the extensions. This is an ideal look if you'd like to give your hair a break from the stresses of styling.


The Wet & Wavy weave can be worn as a ponytail look. By sleeking your own natural hair to the back, top or nape of your neck and attaching the extensions, you'll create a seductive ponytail to swish around. Use a stronghold gel or heavy pomade to achieve the smoothest look and to create the high shine you'll need to make the Wet & Wavy ponytail look believable.

Style Tips

No matter which way you choose to wear your Wet & Wavy weave style, you'll want to properly care for the hair to keep the look. To cut down on frizz, apply a mousse or light gel designed for extensions (if using synthetic hair). For human hair, pin curl a section of the hair at night and wrap the head in a silky scarf before bed. Trim tangles and knots that occur from friction and age.
