10 Easy Wavy Hairstyles You Can do Yourself

Jul. 29, 2020
Have you ever wished you too could achieve a perfect wavy hairstyle that Instagram influencers and celebrities seem to rock daily? Well now you can! In just a few simple steps, you can quickly transform your limp, frizzy, or bedhead hair into a wavy on-trend beauty look. We’ve rounded up 10 easy wavy hairstyles that you can do yourself.
Beachy Waves
You don’t have to go to the ocean to achieve a beachy wave look. There’s a few steps to achieve this style. The trick to perfect beachy waves is a good sea salt texturizing spray. After the dry shampoo at the roots, use this spray all over your hair (don’t forget underneath) to give your style that all over texture beachy waves need.


Natural Waves
If you have naturally wavy hair then the right products will take your bed head to showtime in a few simple stages. A good serum to tame flyaways and a light hairspray will be just enough to nail this style.


Tight Waves
A thin curling wand will ensure you achieve a tight wave style. The more you wrap your hair around the wand the tighter the curl will be. This creates a striking hairstyle and works best if you have longer hair as the end product will be voluminous, bouncy and dramatic.


Loose Waves
Give your hair a few quick sprays with a good primer spray before you blow-dry to protect your hair from heat. To obtain a loose wave style you should use a big barrel curling wand. The bigger the barrel the more loose the wave will look.


Daily Waves
Dry shampoo is not just for 3-day old greasy hair! Use this after you are done curling to help give it a little extra lift and some texture to your waves. Spray at the roots after you are done curling and run your fingers through your hair. It works great when you have fresh waves and for the next day when you just want to revitalize them.


70’s Waves
The 70’s are back baby! A Medium sized curling wand will take you back in time to really nail this look! Start at the front of your hair and turn the wand away from your face. Make sure you wrap the same amount of hair the same way around your head for maximum impact.


Soft Waves
This effortless look is sleek, shiny and easy to obtain. This style works well even if you have very short hair. After fully blow drying your hair, take small sections and curl in different directions with a curling wand. You could even test out some sleep in hair curlers for this look too!


Wet Look Waves
Not for everyone but if you’re feeling confident then go ahead and pull this one off! The look is in the name. Apply a mass amount of hair mousse to damp hair and twist in small sections. Use a diffuser to dry each section, then apply a serum throughout the lengths of the hair. If your hair is naturally a little more wavy then this will be your finished look. If your hair is naturally more straight then you may need to use a curling wand to enhance the waves.


Flat Iron Waves
You don’t always need to use a curling wand to achieve an easy wavy hairstyle. You can use your flat iron by slowly twisting the iron as you run them through to the ends of your hair. Use a strong hair spray to secure your style and finish with a serum to ensure it stays sleek and shiny looking.


Blow Out Waves
You can get that ‘just walked out of the hair salon’ style by using your hair dryer. The top tip is to never hold the blow dryer directly onto your hair. A round brush will ensure your waves are bouncy, big and bold.

I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?

I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃

Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
