How Do You Get Perfect Wavy Hair?

How Do You Get Perfect Wavy Hair?

In order to obtain the look of perfect wavy hair, you need to start with freshly washed, towel-dried hair. You need a hair dryer, a large round brush, a 1-inch barrel curling iron, pony tail holders, texturizing spray and either volumizing spray or straightening balm, depending on your hair type. The entire process takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete, depending on the length and thickness of your hair.

  1. Prep your hair

    Once your hair is washed and towel-dried, comb it out. If you have straight hair, apply volumizing or texturizing spray to the roots. Turn your head upside down, spray it on, and massage it in. If you have very coarse or curly hair, apply a straightening balm throughout the hair instead.

  2. Blow dry your hair

    Starting at the roots, use the round brush to blow dry your hair straight. Make sure it is completely dry before proceeding to the next step. You may also want to blow cold air at the roots to add volume.

  3. Curl your hair

    Divide your hair into three sections, and secure each with pony tail holders. Take a 1 inch section of hair, and spritz it with texturizing spray. Wrap the hair around the heated curling iron for 10 to 15 seconds, and then release it. Leave loose ends so you can avoid an unnatural, crimped look. Repeat section by section until all hair is curled. Once the hair has cooled, run your fingers through it to loosen the curls into soft waves.
