What is a wet mop haircut?
The wet mop hairstyle is also known as “The TikTok haircut”, because it became a huge hit among famous influencers in 2021. It is mostly worn by men and you can recognize it by its messy appearance, hence the name. And no, it does not have to be wet! The hairstyle is longer at the front and it has short sides. The front is usually very wavy or curly and it gives you that casual and relaxed vibe. The TikTok famous boys like Bryce Hall, Noah Beck and Josh Richards are the ones that put this hairstyle back on the trends. We can even say that it was their signature. However, in the 1960s The Beatles had their own vision for this style and it was called the “mop top”. So, I hate to break it to you boys, but The Beatles knew more about hairstyle way before you!
