Got naturally wavy hair? Style it like a pro with these 11 looks
1. Messy bun
If there’s one natural wavy hairstyle that won’t let you down, it’s this effortless messy bun.
Not only will it stylishly keep your locks off your face (making it great for work), it’ll also allow you to give off major off-duty model vibes.
2. Low bun
A big part of this low bun’s appeal is the fact that, like the topknot, it works amazingly well with textured tresses. Giving the hair a laid-back and chic finish, it’s the perfect weekend brunch style.

3. Relaxed beach waves
Editor’s tip: Want that enviable Baywatch style? Lucky for you, you don’t have to work too hard to achieve this on-trend style, since you’re already naturally blessed with dreamy waves.
Simply spray the TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray into your mane, and scrunch the product into your tresses using your hands. Doing so will instantly enhance your existing waves and give your mane a more piecey, beachy finish.
4. Bedhead bob
The best thing about undone waves? You don’t need to have long hair to rock them. Shorter bob cuts are all the rage right now and this beauty shows us how well the style pairs with messy barely-there curls.
5. Glamorous waves
Although beachy waves are a great everyday style, upscale affairs call for something a little more snazzy. Enter: glam waves, the elegant Hollywood style that’s sure to put your mane into the spotlight.
Editor’s tip: To give your waves a glossy and frizz-free finish, apply a few drops of the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil through your locks. This will help make your waves look picture-perfect at all times.
6. Half-up, half-down bun
Can’t decide whether to wear your wavy hair up or down? This half-up, half-down bun hairstyle is the perfect compromise.
7. Wavy fringe
If for some reason you’re under the impression that naturally wavy hair and bangs don’t work, this beauty might make you reconsider. With her wavy short bangs and textured layered cut, this shaggy look is all you need to give your mane a stylish edge.

Looking for easy quick fixes? Here’s a speedy way to make your mane standout when you have naturally wavy hair — weave in a pretty side plait. Though simple, this playful look packs a seriously fashionable punch.
9. Fishtail side braid
When the weather heats up, keep you and your mane looking cool by fashioning it into this boho-chic, fishtail side braid.
The best part? It’s easier to achieve with naturally wavy hair, as texture is the perfect foundation for braiding.
Editor’s tip: For an even more noticeably textured finish, we suggest using the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray.
Perfect for reviving hair that’s gone a bit limp and giving a messy effect to waves, this must-have spray will give you the beautiful texture needed to make this braid look double tap-worthy.
10. Wavy ponytail
Also, take note of this street styler’s stylish wrap detail at the base of her pony – it’s a handy trick for concealing your hair tie and it looks great too.
