8. Wavy Hair From Twists

If you’re looking for perfectly defined waves, twists are the way to go. This style is super easy to do after washing your hair. To make sure you get the sleek and defined look prep the ends of your hair with some oil like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil. Apply a pump to your hair to help prevent frizz and flyaways.

Then, pull your hair into a high ponytail. We suggest securing the ponytail with a scrunchie to avoid any hard lines and then split the tail portion of your hair into two sections. Twist the two sections around each other until you get an inch or two from the ends. Tie off your hair and get to sleep! Wake up and shake out your hair! Easy heatless hairstyles without sweat! Enjoy your perfectly sculpted wavy hair overnight.

9. Wavy Hair From Braids

We’re sure you know all about getting wavy hair overnight with braids.Braids turn into seriously cute heatless hairstyles. We suggest just doing one braid to get a loose beachy texture. The more braids you do, the tighter your waves will be. If you want to go all out, you can do a whole bunch of braids to create a wavy crimped look.

For looser styles, start with your freshly washed hair and add a little volume to the roots. This is key for many overnight hairstyles, since many can come out looking flat. Pump up your roots with a golf-ball sized amount of the Catwalk By TIGI Strong Hold Mousse. Then, loosely braid your hair all the way down and secure with a hair tie. Shake out your braid in the morning to wear your waves.

10. Wavy Hair From Buns

For a curlier wavy look, go for buns. You could do several mini buns all over like bantu knots for a much curlier look. But for a wavy look, go for one or two buns. The bigger the bun is, the more likely it will look wavy instead of curly.

To encourage an even wavier look, prep your hair with the TRESemmé Make Waves Defining Cream. It helps to hold the shape of your waves after you take them out. It’s also infused with jojoba oil and sunflower seed oil to make sure you get soft hair too. Roll your hair into a bun (or two) and let your hair set while you sleep. When you wake up gently unfurl your hair to rock those waves. Now you’ve got two super cute easy heatless hairstyles with one hack!
