Sexy, loose waves with lots of body, volume and shine are perfect for breezy, spring weather. Here at Beautystat, we’re obsessed with natural, wavy hair — and making sure our tresses are healthy enough to survive the wrath of the spring/summer sun and weather. This season, celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Emmy Rossum have been seen wearing the beachy, wavy look. But you don’t need a professional stylist to get gorgeous, loose waves. All you need is a thermal protector, flat iron and shine serum to style at home. And there you have it: easy, fashion-forward, carefree hair.
STEP 1: Before styling, spritz on a powerful thermal protector like Davines Melu Thermal Protecting Shield ($31.00) on to dry hair to prevent the damaging effects of high-heat styling. Vanessa Fernandez of Butterfly Studio Salon, says that “heat protecting sprays not only protect hair from the heat of the iron but also create a shinier look.”
STEP 2: Begin by parting hair into sections and working layer by layer. Take a one inch section of hair, clamp the flat iron midway and twist your wrist inwards towards your head. Quickly slide the flat iron down the entire section of hair like you are straightening it. Maintain this position and then twist inwards once again at the ends to make sure they are not left straight. Work quickly to ensure that curls are loose and wavy; the longer you spend sliding the iron over the hair, the tighter the curls will become. Continue on until all sections of your hair have been curled.
STEP 3: Once the style is complete, add high shine and an extra barrier against frizz with Philip B. Anti-Frizz Formula 57 ($35.00). Lavender, jojoba, rice bran and soybean oils lend hair a perfect dose of conditioning moisture that give lightweight definition, movement and shine without added weight. One drop is all you will need for a gorgeous frizz-free finish.
