A common trend that has been seen on just about every red carpet the past couple years has been wet hair. Yes, wet hair -- one of the most natural and effortless things to do to our hair is actually a popular celebrity hair trend. Of course these celebrities still have professionals and tons of products to help them achieve and maintain this look most of the time, but at the core of the hairstyle it's totally achievable for almost anyone.

Most people would assume that this look can be recreated with a ton of gel and hairspray, but according to some research done by Style Caster, a lot of celebrity hair stylists actually use Pomade for the perfect wet hair look. 

The wet hair trend has been worn by ladies with straight hair, curly hair, long hair, and short hair. It can be slicked back into a ponytail or a bun, or worn free and flowing like someone who just walked off the beach.

Here are 30 different celebrities who pulled off the wet hair trend -- whether they rocked actual wet hair or a stylized version of wet hair. Maybe they will influence others to try out this trend as well!
