Wavy hair – how to

wavy hair how to tutorial

Recently I learned how to transform easily my naturally straight hair into wavy hair. I’ve been a fan of this style ever since. Firstly, because its really easy even a hair rookie as myself can do it. Secondly, its perfect for straight hair and also to cover fringe that I’m trying to grow out. Finally, you can use just your hair straightener and nothing else to achieve quite a sophisticated look.

So today I’m sharing this quick wavy hair tutorial with you.  Here’s how to do it yourself at home:

1) Wash and blow dry hair as usual with a portion of volumnising product. I’m using Redken Full Effect nourishing mouse

2a) Part your hair and beginning on one side grab a little section of your hair near the scalp. Now twist one direction with the straightener in the opposite direction with the lock of hair that you’re holding. Hold it for a few seconds but not too long – don’t burn your hair. I’m using GHD hair straightener.  

2b) Move your fingers and the straightener a bit further down the lock of hair.  Twist both the straightener and your fingers in the opposite direction to the previous turn.

2c) Repeat 2a and 2b, continuing to reverse the direction of the twist until you reach the end of the lock. Repeat this process all the way around the top of your head. There’s no need to do waves on every bit of hair, just do the crown. That will be sufficient to achieve the wavy look (that’s the time saving bit!)

3) If you want a messy wavy look, brush your fingers through the hair.  For a more polished wavy look (that what I did), use a brush. Spray  the outer layer of your hair lightly with a flexible hairspray for a flexible finish. I use MaroccanOil strong flexible hold hairspray.




ps. The hair straightener was gifted by GHD.

    Looks much more modern than just plain stick-straight hair… it’s easier and still polished. Really suits you Maria!
