If you follow beauty trends and pop culture, we’re guessing you’ve seen “liquid hair” flowing through your social media feeds. It’s been featured on major online beauty publications, blogs and most notably seen on celebrities and social media influencers such as Kim Kardashian, Dua Lipa, Zendaya, Megan Fox and Cardi B.
So, what is liquid hair?
Just like it sounds, this style refers to hair that looks so soft and shiny that it reflects light like water. It visually “flows” and “ripples” like a water stream, or fountain of hair! The end result? Extra sleek, and extra glossy locks.
How can I achieve this cool new style?
The best way to wear this trend is with sleek pin-straight hair: think smooth blowout with a flat iron finish.
An online deep dive would have you believe that the only way to achieve this look is by already having extremely straight hair, or by getting a keratin treatment. However, that is not the case. Anyone can rock this style—all types of hair, all types of texture. We asked our stylists at Fabio Scalia salons and this is what they recommend.
“Take advantage of in-salon treatments! Many clients don’t even realize the arsenal of treatments available at their salons,” says Fabio. “Luxury hair care brands, such as L’Oreal’s Kerastase, invest huge amounts of resources on technology and science to come up with the latest haircare products that are truly miraculous.”
Which treatment is best?
For liquid hair, the K Water treatment by Kerastase is the perfect in-salon treatment to achieve the look. The best part is, unlike a keratin treatment (which can cost upward of $500), K Water is a $25 quick add-on treatment applied directly at the sink. Its breakthrough lamellar technology allows the liquid to act as a resurfacing solution. It instantly coats the hair upon contact, giving it an instant glossy, silky and smooth appearance. It is incredibly lightweight and leaves the hair feeling super fluid. See for yourself in this awesome video (on our Instagram) demonstrating impeccable liquid hair results created by Fabio himself with a K Water treatment.
So, the secret is out! Next time you visit the salon and want to give this trend a try, ask your hairstylist about this add-on treatment for the perfect blowout.
