How To Get A Wavy Look
  • Wash your hair and towel dry. Once dry, brush your hair to get rid of all the tangles and knots. Remember, your hair must be completely dry for any look to work.
  • After brushing your hair, separate them into three sections. Secure them carefully with a ponytail holder. This makes it easier to curl.
  • Use a wide barrel curling iron to give curls to your hair. Take one inch from one section of hair and spurt it with a good quality styling spray. After using the hairspray, wrap your hair around the barrel of the curling iron. Make sure to leave the ends loose to avoid a crimp mark, while curling.
  • Release the curl after 5-10 sec. You can hold the curl for longer time if you want to get tighter curls. Once curled, roll them and use bobby pins to pin it close to the scalp.
  • Keep changing the direction of the curls as you move from one section to other. Start by placing hair on top of the barrel and wrapping it around, and then switch by putting the barrel on top of the hair before winding it around. Alternate directions will give a natural look to the waves, with some tight curls and some remaining loose.
  • Once you have pinned the curls, leave them for some time. You can release them from the bobby pins. Remove the nozzle from the dryer and loosen the waves with the help of cool air. Do not brush your curls; rather use your fingers to separate them.
  • If you want to provide extra shine to your waves, spurt a hair spray, which if not available can be substituted by saltwater spray.
  • For a quick wavy effect, towel-dry your hair and then comb it properly. Take some hair gel based on your hair length. Tilt your head and apply the mousse from the end on one side of your hair. Apply this on the other side. Let your hair air-dry, while scrunching it as it dries. Do not brush your hair.
  • Purchase a good hair spray and use it on your hair. Bend down your head and use the spray on the freshly washed hair. Massage your hair gently after using the spray to provide volume and texture to your flat, thin hair.
  • If you have a naturally coarse or curly hair, use a straightening balm and apply it through your hair to be able to provide silky waves using different methods. Brush your hair for the product to work evenly through your hair. Use a dryer to blow-dry your hair to make it straight. Start using the dryer at the roots of your hair to get extra volume.
