Last night’s Oscars saw numerous beauty looks take center stage. Besides the middle part, another surprising hair trend dominating the red carpet: “wet” hairstyles.

Unlike “liquid” hair that looks shiny and healthy, celebrities took a more literal approach to this slick trend — wearing hairstyles that looked dripping wet both at the Oscars and at afterparties. While these were some pretty fancy occasions that probably took hours to prepare for, “wet” hairstyles are actually great in a pinch. “If you’re usually in a rush in the morning, then wet styles are the way to go,” Anabel Santos, hairstylist at Sally Hershberger NoMad Salon, previously told POPSUGAR.

Stars who took part in the trend include “Euphoria”‘s Hunter Schafer, who arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscars party with her chin-length hair slicked close to her scalp; Kourtney Kardashian, who graced the Oscars red carpet with her hair combed back completely, leaving the ends spiky and slightly curled; and Kim Kardashian, who combined the best of both worlds — donning a sleek high ponytail with scrunched ends to make her hair look freshly towel-dried.

Quite a few other celebrities decided to take part in the “wet”-look hair trend, so we rounded up the best looks of the night ahead.
