Wavy hair is a hot trend right now, and it’s easier to achieve than you might think. And faster, too! Once you get the hang of it, it should take about ten minutes. Today I’m going to show you how I transform my long, straight hair into wavy, loose curls. And don’t forget to check out the video at the bottom of the post!
Begin by spraying your roots with dry shampoo. This will give your hair some texture so the curling wand has something to grab onto. Spritz it into your hair at the roots, using your fingertips to rub it in as you go. Then brush through your hair once you’re finished.
Split your hair in half and put one side up in a clip so it stays out of the way. Warm up your curling wand. I have the Nume 25 mm Classic Wand and it’s the best one I’ve ever tried.
Take a one inch section from the back and wrap it around the wand. I hold it for 20 seconds, but the exact time will depend on the texture of your hair and your wand. My hair is super straight so I have to keep it in for longer than most people would. Repeat for the remaining sections of your hair on this side.
They should look something like this, with a fairly tight curl on the front section by your face. Repeat for the other half of your hair.
