Step 1: Blow-dry hair.

Start by blowdrying your hair straight, adding in Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil for a soft shine.


Step 2: Create relaxed waves.

Spray your hair with a heat protectant. Then, use a 1.5 inch barrel curling iron to create relaxed hair waves.

Step 3: Brush the hair.

After curling, brush your strands with a paddle brush to further tame waves. Then, rub two pumps of the Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil onto your fingers. Run them through your hair to add a little added shine and texture.

Step 4: Create a deep-side part.

For some drama, create a deep-side part and pul your hair off to one side for a sophisticated, old Hollywood style.

Step 5: Lock in the style.

Finally, use some of Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray to lock in the look to ensure that it will last all night long.

Step 1: Start with mousse.

Prep damp hair with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Soufflé Mousse and blow-dry smooth with a medium size round brush for volume.

Step 2: Create your waves.

Use a 1.25” curling iron, take horizontal sections of your as you bend your hair into the barrel of the iron. To avoid dents, make sure to gently open and close barrel while bending. Then, alternate the wave pattern.

Step 3: Let your curls cool.

Let your curls cool for 5-10 minutes. Once cool, loosely brush them out to get slightly undone texture.
