One of my favourite and easiest ways I like to share this Effortless Hair Waves Tutorial style of hair, is by throwing in a few loose waves. And while most of girls love curls, waves are definitely girl go-to look for an easy, every day style.
To achieve this look, simply start with clean, damp hair. I have recommended the Nexxus New York Salon Care Color Assure Regimen and sure you will have very happy with the results. I find myself to be pretty picky when it comes to hair products and this regimen has worked wonderful for everyone hair. It’s so important to use a sulfate free shampoo when you have color treated hair.
Before blow drying, use Nexxus New York Salon Care Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil on towel dried hair. This stuff is the bomb. It will help you hair stay hydrated and looking healthy. You will love products that can be used on wet or dry hair!
Section your hair when blow drying. I find it easier to manage and it actually saves time! Here, I’m recommending you to use the Pro Beauty Tools Ionic Blow dryer. If you suffer from tangles, you have to try the wetbrush (I can’t believe it took me so long to discover this amazing tool).If your hair gets very tangled when wet then this is the best thing tried to help manage the tangles!
After blow drying, section your hair and prep for curling. It’s important to use a thermal protectant before using a curling iron or wand, and I like to recommend you to use Nexxus New York Salon Care Promend Heat Protecting Mist. Not only does this product actually work, but it smells nice and can be used on wet or dry hair. Use 3-4 pumps on the bottom section of my hair to protect against dryness and breakage. After applying the mist, be sure to brush your hair before using the curling iron.
Now you are ready to throw in some Hair Waves. There are two things to keep in mind when creating Hair Waves.
- The bigger the barrel, the looser the curl. This is important because you do not want tight curls if you are trying to achieve loose waves (this is a 1 1/4 inch iron and love it).
- Use more hair when curling. My secret to loose waves, is taking a 2-3 inch section of your hair in the curling iron. Typically, if you are wanting a traditional curl, you would only take a 1-1.5 inch section, but in this case, more is better.
Continue curling away from your face. To create a “messier” look, try curling in opposite directions. I typically like to keep the curl moving in the same consistent pattern, but changing it up a bit can definitely add some texture.
To create the loose waves, run your fingers through the curls right after using the iron. This is the opposite of what you would do if you were wanting tighter curls. Do this while the curl is still warm because it helps the hair fall into the perfect wave. You could also brush the curl out to create softer Hair Waves.
Set your waves by using a flexible hold hairspray. I like to recommend you to use Nexxus New York Salon Care Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist. To achieve an effortless look, run your hands through the Hair Waves as your spray dries.It holds the waves without making your hair stiff.
