Wave ‘hello’ to the loose wave lob.
If you decided to take the leap and chop off your hair to a classy lob length or have been rocking shorter hair for awhile, you’re going to want to keep reading. Shorter lengths are taking the fashion world by storm and we don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon! Lobs are a great length for experimenting with different styles. The longish short length allows you to still go for a ponytail or a top knot. If you choose to go for a curled style it’ll look fab, too. One of the classiest and sexiest curled styles for lobs is the loose wave lob. This style is exactly like any other beachy wave inspired look but utilizes products that will give you lots of volume. We’ve got just the techniques and products to help you achieve this style:
The Loose Wave Lob is Going to be Your New Fave
Before you dive into styling your loose wave lob, it’s important to prep accordingly. Since this style is a shorter length, make sure your strands are healthy and moisturized. Any signs of breakage or dry ends will be more apparent as your length will be more visible. In order to create this look, you’ll need a straightener or curling iron. It’s important to remember a heat protectant before going in with a styling tool that gets hot. Go in with a few sprays of Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist before you start creating your loose wave lob.
Now that it’s styling time, choose your weapon: straightener or curling iron. If you’re a beginner to loose waves, then we recommend sticking to a curling iron. Styling Hack: While curling, remember to curl varying strands away from your face and toward your face to create a more natural look. When wrapping your hair around the barrel or twisting the straightener, make sure to leave about an inch or two at the end un-curled. By solely focusing your curls in the middle of your strands, you will create a more stylized curl that appears voluminous.
In order to get even more volume on your loose wave lob, spray some dry shampoo at your roots. Focus Love Beauty and Planet Volume and Bounty Juicy Grapefruit Day 2 Dry Shampoo at your root on the top sections of your hair.
Once your loose wave lob is to your liking, it’s time for the finishing touches. Go in with a pump of Bed Head by TIGI Motor Mouth Mega Volumizer with Gloss to add a shine boost and thickening product to your strands. In case volume and shine weren’t enough for you, this product also glows under UV light, pretty cool, right?
