I have never been a master are doing my hair, but these lose waves are seriously the easiest hairstyle you can do! Its perfect for every occasion, date night, walking around the city, or even an event. It only takes me a few minutes to style !
The first thing I do is brush my hair! You want to start of with hair that is knot free because it just makes the whole process of styling your hair easier. I just use any regular paddle brush, this one is from Forever 21. just make sure you start brushing from the bottom and work your way up to prevent any damage to your hair!
I then section my hair off because I like working on small sections and this keeps things a little bit neater ! I use a scrunchy to tie up my hair because it it easier to take on an off than an elastic is, as it's also less likely to get caught in your hair. (ouch!)
To curl my hair I am using the NuMe 25mm curling wand. I've always avoided curling wands mainly because they don't have a clamp. I don't like the idea of having my hand so close to something so hot (i'm clumsy and uncoordinated ok..) But this wand Heats up so quickly and makes curling my hair a breeze. I can style my entire head in less than 10 minutes which is perfect when you are trying to get ready in the morning !
when curling my hair I pull all the hair forward (from the section that is down) I like to take small one inch sections and wrap it around the barrel, away from my face and holding it for about 10 seconds (my natural hair is straight and stubborn). I then let that piece drop and bring it to the back of my head, so that it's out of the way! I do that for the rest of my hair. I don't use the glove it comes with to hold my hair because I find it difficult to grab the hair properly, and it always slips out of my fingers. just be careful not to burn the tips of your fingers when holding the hair close to the barrel.
When all of my hair is curled I like to look at all of my hair and see if there are any pieces that need a bit more curling, If so then I just re-curl them to match the rest of the hair! You don't have to make it perfect because its suppose to be lose anyway so if some pieces are more structured than others thats ok !
Of course you have to set the hair so I use a little bit of hairspray, not too much because the weight can weigh down the hair and straighten out the curls. I like so use Sebastian Shaper Plus hairspray, its been a favourite of mine for a couple of years! It really holds the hairstyle and I love the scent (it smells a lot like sunscreen)
And thats it ! That is how you create these loose S-waves, i've been wearing this hairstyle a lot lately. I love how its not a tight curls and it looks a bit more natural and carefree than standard tight ringlets. I hope you guys like this look and if you want to see a video demo on how I do this hairstyle click here!
