TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio‘s spiky wet bun with some wispy face-framing was THE moment at this year’s VMAs, serving edgy, deconstructed Hollywood glam. Styled by celebrity stylist and Aquage Brand Ambassador Laura Polko (@laurapolko), this impossibly wet look is sure to top the charts. Keep scrolling for all the deets on how to recreate it.


Products Used



Start by mixing a product cocktail of Aquage’s Transforming Paste, Defining Gel, Silkening Oil Treatment and a little Finishing Spray for a good hold (minus the flaking). Work the mixture through the back of the hair towards the front.


While the hair is still damp, use a T3 Fit Dryer on medium heat or lower to lock in the product and style.


Work more product towards the front of the head, pulling the sides back and clipping with setting clips. The result: a slight yet beautiful wet texture.


Tie the hair back into a perfectly imperfect loose bun with some free strands sticking out for added affect. Style a few face-framing pieces to soften the look.


Polish with a little more Defining Gel and apply low heat with the T3 Dryer to set everything into place.
