"The wet mop hairstyle is a modified bowl cut," hairstylist Devin Toth told PopSugar. "If the Beatles or Justin Bieber had wavy hair instead of smooth, straight hair, it would resemble the current 'wet mop haircut.'"
"Any face shape that would look good with long bangs will look good with this haircut," Toth added. "So, a long face or someone with a large forehead would appreciate this trend."
As for how it's achieved at home?
Popular TikTok user Jacob (@jacob.jay_14) demonstrated the easy method, by blowdrying the hair before brushing it forward, ensuring knots are taken out with a comb.
He then applies a texturising salt spray and proceeds to brush it out and adds hairspray. Then, using a barrel brush, he blow dries the ends in an upward motion before messing it up.
"I love it," one fan wrote, while another reiterated: "I absolutely love your tutorial… You’re awesome!"
