Hair How-To: Romantic Waves

You can get the classic, subtle, and totally romantic hair style in just three easy steps.

Start with second-day hair (yes, we’re serious), the clean texture of freshly washed hair won’t help create and set your curl. Take one inch sections of your hair from your bottom layer working upwards towards your crown, and use a curling iron with a clamp to construct your curls. If you’ve got thinner hair and want to naturally create more volume, alternate the direction in which you curl your sections (some towards the left and some towards the right).

          Hair tool to try: T3 bodywaver 1.75" professional curling iron

 Set your hair with a light amount of hairspray, and let sit for about fifteen minutes until cool.

         Your perfect product go-to: Rusk w8less hairspray

     Use your fingers to gently comb out your waves. The key here is long gentle strokes; you’ll want to lengthen each of your locks as you go. Set with a final spritz of hairspray.
