Gilmore Girls: How to rock waves – no matter your age!

Check out the hottest hairstyle of Stars Hollow.  

As most of you have probably heard: the Gilmore Girls are back! Yes, the hit TV show is finally returning to our screens tomorrow on Netflix – not that we’re counting down or anything. And if you’re anything like us (die-hard Gilmore fans, that is), you’ve probably been waiting with bated breath for its comeback.

So, to celebrate the Stars Hollow homecoming, and to tide you over until its premiere, we’ve put together our favourite wavy hairstyles from the show’s cast.

Yep, the Gilmore Girls have taught us a lot about love, life, and, as it turns out, hair! Now scroll down and take a look at the waves you can rock, no matter what your age or hair length.

The Gilmore Girls show us how to rock waves – no matter your age!

Long hair: Lorelai’s classic waves

Looking for Gilmore Girls #hairspiration for long tresses? Then it doesn’t any better than Lorelai’s classic, glam waves!

But if you have naturally straight hair – and want to be a Stars Hollow starlet – then you better get your curling tongs at the ready and make sure that you’ve fully prep your locks with a heat protectant.

Editor’s tip: We especially love the VO5 Nourish My Shine Miracle Illuminator Lotion, because not only does it help provide shine, fight frizz, and give a light hold, but it’s also a heat protectant! Now that’s what we call a hard-working product.

Medium-length hair: Rory’s barely-there waves

It might be winter, but you can still get Rory’beach-inspired waves in your medium-length hair! And the secret to this undone look? A healthy dose of a sea salt spray.

Get the look: Simply spritz some TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray onto dry or damp hair, and you’ll have created effortless-looking, tousled waves.

To finish, spray your mane with the TONI&GUY Tousled Texture Creation Hairspray, to keep your ‘do as perfect as Rory’s grade point average.

Short hair: Emily’s soft and sophisticated ‘do

Emily Gilmore’s demeanour might be a little frosty, but her tresses are most definitely hot, hot, hot! Soft and sophisticated perfectly sums up her short hairstyle with its subtle crop and gentle waves.

And although it seems that achieving this polished look takes a lot of hair expertise, the truth is, that you can easily ace this hairstyle with a set of heated rollers!

Note: Just remember to pick the right size rollers for your hair length, and you’ll be on your way to a refined and elegant ‘do in no time.
