When it comes to the definitive hairstyle for that effortlessly boho beauty look, wavy hair wins time and time again. From the red carpet to the runway, waves have been a celebrity favorite for as long as we can remember, so it’s about time you mastered them.
Read on for a few simple tips and tricks to ensure you get wonderful waves every time and watch the video below for a tutorial from celebrity hairdresser Luke Hersheson that shows you how to create the perfect wavy-hair look without the need to visit a salon.
Wave your hair a day (or two) after you wash it.
Soft, freshly washed hair is almost impossible to style and often results in waves dropping out just minutes after you’ve set them – not ideal!
Pick the right product.
Be sure to use a heat-protecting setting spray before you start styling; this not only keeps damage at bay, but it also helps the waves to "stick". Always set your look with a light-hold hairspray.
Twist hair before you wrap it around your waving tongs and leave the ends free.
This will help you avoid ringlets and is an easy way to create that beachy, effortless look.
