My Idiot-Proof Hair Routine: Easy, Loose Waves

I always get so many questions about how I do my hair, so you guys might be surprised to know that until recently, I actually was pretty terrible at doing it myself. But I finally found the right tools, products, and haircut(!) that made doing everyday loose waves so much easier. This is a look I often do for shoots, events, or even just casually when I want a step up from my usual messy top knot. It takes about 15 minutes in total, and the products I use (which are minimal) are very affordable. Watch my full tutorial and shop all the products below!

 


 

A Few Tips:
1. Whether it’s clean or dirty, make sure your hair is bone dry. This will make the curls hold much better.
2. Always keep the wand vertical.
3. When sectioning off your hair, don’t rush it by trying to curl big pieces. Smaller sections will hold longer, about a centimeter to an inch maximum. Your patience will pay off!
4. Keep the ends straight by leaving about 1.5 inches of each section off of the barrel. This gives a much cooler look (no Shirley Temple curls for me, thank you!).
5. Brushing tangles out of each section before curling makes waves more smooth.
6. Utilize clips to section out your hair and keep what you’re not working on out of the way.
7. Mix up the direction of the curls, but curl the front sections away from your face as it frames the face better.
8. Once curls are set, tease them at the top for a nice tousled look.
9. Follow up with dry shampoo, but don’t spray it too closely to your head so that you don’t get any of that white residue.
10. Separate the curls with your fingers or comb for a cool texture.

Voila! What other tutorials would you guys like to see? Tell me below!

    Darling, do you have layers? Or is your hair all one length? I have very similar thick hair to you and looking to go a bit shorter but wondering if this look needs any layers? Love the tutorial!
    Thank you!! x

    It is a pity that I do not have manual skills. But I will try anyway! 🙂

  • Just curious, do you guys wear SPF every day? Comment below, let's talk about it! Although it might not seem obvious, dermatologists recommend wearing it daily, even when it's rainy and grey outside. @Olay’s got you covered with the new Regenerist Whip SPF 25. I'm excited because the Regenerist Whip moisturizer is my favorite, and I always make sure to layer it on each morning no matter what. Plus, it melts perfectly into my skin and is great for priming the face for makeup. Try it for 25% off at the link in my bio! #SelfcareSunday #FaceAnything #OlaySun ☀️⁣⠀
