10 Easy Wavy Hairstyles You Can do Yourself
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
