5 Short wavy hair pegs worth copying
1. Blowout waves
Get hair that is in between wavy and straight by getting blowout waves. First, towel-dry your hair after showering. When your hair is half damp, apply hairspray or sea salt spray to add texture. Then, twist small sections of your hair around your fingers and start blow drying in medium setting. Flip your hair as well to blow dry the insides. Add more spray if needed. After blow drying, scrunch your hair to style.
Worried that your waves didn’t set? That’s okay. We’re not after perfect waves or curls here—just enough to add volume and texture to straight, short hair.
Editor’s tip: Spritz TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your palms and scrunch through your hair after blow drying to help set and define your waves.
2. Shallow waves
These waves are more defined than blow out waves but they still look subtle. It’s similar to a tousled ‘do. You can make shallow waves by using a curling iron with a bigger barrel. You can also use a blow dryer to make these waves. This hairstyle is great for school or for work when you want to shake up your usual look.
Editor’s tip: Protect your hair from heat damage by spritzing TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your locks before curling or blow drying.
3. Beach waves
Make regular days more special by wearing your hair differently. Create beach waves to add pizzazz to your look. You can sport this ‘do from day to night, so you can head straight to your dinner date after coffee and merienda with your girl pals.
Editor’s tip: Frequent styling can damage your hair. Wash your tresses with DOVE Intense Repair Conditioner to help repair signs of damage and make hair stronger to minimize breakage.
4. Soft curls
This hairstyle may already be crossing the curly hair department, but not quite. Soft curls are more defined than shallow and beach waves but are not tightly coiled like other curly hairstyles. This ‘do is perfect for cocktail parties or wine nights. You can also curl a few sections of your hair if you want to add just a little spice to your look.
Editor’s tip: Apply a drop of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops on your soft curls to make them sleek and glossy.
5. Short wavy hair with hair piece
Attending a wedding? You can look chic even if you don’t have long hair. Just make your short hair wavy and embellish your hair with an elegant hair piece. To make your waves last longer, apply hair mousse before curling hair, then set your waves with a hairspray.
Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your waves to keep them from loosening up after a few hours.
