Unfortunately, this finicky hairstyle can be a real pain to create–without the proper know-how, your waves can end up looking either too frizzy or too limp.
Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist Jenny Cho has an easy, no-fail method for creating this stunning look at home:
- Apply Suave Professionals Captivating Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to damp hair and diffuse with a blow dryer.
- Starting at the nape of your neck, loosely curl sections of hair with a large barrel curling iron, spraying each section with a light hold hairspray prior to curling. This will add some hold, so your waves don’t end up looking limp.
- Once your entire head is curled, flip head over and apply a nickel-sized amount of anti-frizz cream to hands and run them through hair to control frizz, separate curls and add gloss.
- While your head is still upside down, mist your locks with hairspray. This adds extra body, which is what separates a bouncy wave from a droopy one.
Want waves that are a little less labor-intensive? Hair stylist Kevin Murphy (he’s Australian, so he knows a little something about the beach goddess look) just launched a new gadget called the Wave.Clip–an M-shaped clip that functions like a hot roller. Simply spray wet hair with a texturizer, insert the clip into your hair (you’ll need about 8-10 of them, depending on your hair length) and blast with a blow dryer. Let your locks cool down, then remove the clips, run your fingers through your hair and spritz with hairspray. Instant, sexy waves in a snap!
