If this is exactly the look that you’re going for, you’re in for a treat because today, we teach you how to nail this ‘do right on the head. Just watch the video above or check out the detailed steps we’ve laid down below!


Get your hair to behave!

To make sure your hair is easy to manage and style, wash it with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo and Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Conditioner.


Get it ready for some heat styling

Make sure your tresses are protected before you let any heated styling tool touch it. Protect your strands with a heat protectant product like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray to shield it from heat damage.


Use mousse

To achieve natural texture, apply TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse on your hair and blow dry.



Start creating the waves

Using a flat iron, create soft waves by clamping the hair at mid-lengths and twisting the iron outwards. Work on your hair section by section, repeating the process until you’ve finished curling all of your hair.


Add texture

For a textured, tousled look, spray your hair with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray from roots to tips, then loosen the curls a bit by gently running your fingers through your locks.
