Wavy hair is a trendy look that every girl can achieve. Whether you have straight or curly hair, there are different techniques to achieve chic and wavy hair. The choice of material also affects the result.
Getting wavy hair with twists
Although it’s easy to get wavy hair at home with a curling iron, the heat can be damaging to your hair. Fortunately, you can get this hairstyle at home without using heat. The first step is to wet your hair. Gently pat it down with a towel or T-shirt if it drips. Separate them in the middle for an equal amount of hair on each side of your head.
Choose one side to start on. Next, pick up a strand of hair from the front of your head and divide it in half. Turn each section individually down to create two strands. Then twist these two individual sections together. Twisting them together, gather a long vertical section of hair and add it to the set. This step is similar to French braiding. Continue adding strands of hair to the main rope. Stop when you reach the nape of your neck.
Final Steps in Twisting Hair
Once you have twisted the rope up to your neck, the first part of your head should be ready to gather into a bun. In the end, you’ll end up with two buns. Then repeat the twisting process on the other side of your head. Gather a strand of hair from the other side of your head, create a rope braid and tie the bun. Allow your hair to dry completely before gently unwinding your bun and strings. Finally, gently comb your hair with your fingers and fix it with hairspray.
Using a curling iron
Start with damp hair and apply a volumizing product and heat protector. Then straighten your hair with a blow dryer. Curl your hair with a 2.5 cm curling iron. Wrap thin sections around the shaft, alternating them as you work around your head. Wrap one section towards your face and the other away from your face. This will give your waves a more natural look. Gently comb your hair to separate the waves. Finally, mist your hair with hairspray to help maintain the style.
