One of my favorite hairstyles that looks great on anyone are soft, loose waves! We see this look on celebrities and models all the time and secretly wish we could get our hair to look like that. Well wish no more!! Here is our step by step guide on how to get gorgeous waves easily! First let’s talk about the products and tools you will need to achieve this style – A bubble curling wand is crucial, it will keep the curls consistent. The one I used is by Verge and it is one of the best on the market! Any hair brush will work, I used a paddle one by Spornette and hair clips to hold the excess hair back that you’re not curling at the moment are a must! The products I used for this tutorial are all by Sexy Hair, Spray & Stay, Spray & Play, and H2NO, a dry shampoo. These are fabulous products and smell amazing!
To begin you need to brush through all of your hair to get rid of any tangles and to smooth everything before you curl. Start at the bottom of your head and work your way to the top with 1 inch sections, leaving the rest of your hair up in a clip.
Using your bubble wand start curling section by section making sure you are curling away from your face, not towards it. Leave about an inch to an inch and half of hair out at the end past the clamp to keep the strands from looking over curled.
Keep curling the sections of hair until you reach the top of your head.
After all your hair has been curled let it cool so that the curls will set. The longer you let it cool the more curl you will have.
After your hair is cool you can begin pulling your fingers through your hair to loosen the curls into waves.
If your hair holds curl very well or you just want really loose waves then you don’t need to do anything else to it. You can spray a little hairspray if you want at this point to make the waves last all day. If you want Big Sexy Hair though then use a flexible or strong hold hairspray and lift the hair up while you spray under the sections of hair. This will help keep the volume of the curls and give you more body. If you want a looser wave you can use a brush to tone down the curls some.
To add volume and texture at your crown you can spray some H2NO Dry Shampoo at the roots of your hair and rake your fingers through your hair.
How simple was that? A lot easier than you imagined I am sure! The beauty of this style is that the bubble wand does all the work for you! This is a great style that you can wear for multiple days and refresh with some dry shampoo and hairspray. You could start out with strong curls and then by a couple days they are softer, looser waves.
